Jake Roberts: 'I'll be in the Royal Rumble next year ... I'm definitely coming back'

Jake "The Snake" Roberts is doing so well in Diamond Dallas Page's "Accountability Crib," he's now promising a comeback ... and he's even saying he'll be in the Royal Rumble match next year.

Whatever Diamond Dallas Page is doing down at his "Accountability Crib" in Atlanta, it's apparently working. So well, in fact, that Jake Roberts, the legendarily quiet heel who cut the most ominous of promos but had an even more legendary drug problem, is thinking comeback.

That's right, folks, "The Snake" thinks he can be a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble match next year.

From FOXSportsSouth.com:

As for wrestling, Roberts laments the way it all ended, coming with little fanfare as he defeated Sinn Bodhi at a Pro Wrestling Guerrilla show. It was a day he called "one of the most ugly days of my life." He was ashamed of the way he looked, weighing 305 pounds and he struggled to get up off the mat.

So he's making it clear, he's not finished. Not yet.

"I'm announcing that right now," he said. "I'll be in the Royal Rumble next year, count on it... I worked too hard in this business to go out that way. So I guess we're going to have to take a victory lap. I'm definitely coming back."

Considering the fact that Page has helped Roberts lose 50 pounds and has him eating clean and kicking his drug habits, this could be more of a possibility than we might think. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Roberts' name has been bandied about in the rumor mill recently as a potential member of the 2014 Hall of Fame class.

That would make for quite the farewell tour. An appearance in the Rumble and, a few months later, a spot in the Hall of Fame and one final bow at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans.

It's the stuff dreams are made of.
