On the WWE Hall of Fame: "In the past, I was angry, I said stuff I shouldn't have said, blew some things out of proportion, and - guess what? - nobody's 100 percent right all the time," Roberts said on the Busted Open show. "I've made some pretty bad remarks about certain people going in that I didn't think should be in there and I've got to learn to shut my mouth. It's not up to me who goes in. All I will tell you is this - I appreciate the things WWE did for me. I'm ashamed of myself in a way that I threw away opportunities for whatever reason, whether it was the drugs, or whether I got pissed off, or whether they screwed me over, whatever, there is no good reason to throw away the talent that I had. If the Lord wants me to, and Vince McMahon wants me to, I'll go into the Hall of Fame. But, if it doesn't happen, that's okay, too."
On his hopes to get in the ring once more: "I'm at a good place in my life and I've got a lot of things that I want to accomplish before I leave this planet and one of them would be going into the Hall of Fame, sure. Another one would be to close my career the way I wanted to. To go back out there one last time. I pity the poor fools who get in my way, because that's what I'm working towards. I'm working towards going out the way I wanted to. I've got to get back out there because whenever I quit, I had to quit because I couldn't hardly walk, my feet were so messed up, my hands were so messed up, I couldn't straighten them out, my feet or my hands. Now I got that all taken care of. I'm not on the meds anymore for my hands or feet, which is amazing."
