The petition states, "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 officials are reportedly aware of Roberts' desire, but not interested in using him at this time. In August, it was reported that they were not considering him for the match, and if they did, it wouldn't be until January when the event draws near.
