Do you want to see The Snake back in WWE?
- Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who said in April that he wanted to be in the 2014 Royal Rumble after changing his lifestyle with Diamond Dallas Page and DDPYoga, has continued to campaign for a spot in the Rumble.
Yesterday on Twitter, he posted a link to a petition to WWE Talent Relations to put him in the match.
The petition reads: "Jake has given the fans so much of himself in the ring over the course of his decades spent in the business, let's give back to him and show our appreciation by voicing our support for the next stage in his journey!" the petition states. "Let's show WWE that we fans want to see this. Send your mail to WWE, post about this on every kind of social network imaginable, tell your friends and their friends, AND SIGN THIS PETITION! Let's show WWE that we won't shut up until Jake Roberts is in the Royal Rumble!"
WWE knows that Roberts wants to be in the match but aren't interested in using him at this time. It was reported in August that they were not considering him and if they did, it wouldn't be until January.
- While serving a 114-day jail sentence earlier this year for violating her ex-boyfriend's restraining order, Tammy "Sunny" Sytch's human papillomavirus (HPV) contraction developed into cervical cancer. She said in May that she was cancer-free after a hysterectomy but now says she's not out of trouble yet.
She wrote on Facebook: "I've been sad, depressed, angry, confused, bitter, in denial, upset since Monday when I got the bad news from my oncologist ... But this morning, I thought to myself, I'm the toughest, strongest, most resilient bitch I know (I blame that on being a Russian and a sagittarius) so I'm gonna do what I do best when something stands I'm my way.... I'm gonna beat the shit out of then choke out Cancer once and for all! And if ANYONE OR ANYTHING tries to stand in my way, I'll take you out right along with it! Just try me, biatch! You have NO IDEA who you're dealing with!! I WILL SURVIVE!!!"
