Major Update On Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ Health


WWE Legend and Hall of Famer Jake “The Sanke” Roberts was hospitalized earlier this week and his Lawyer recently released a statement to update his fans and media on the superstar’s health.

“For those that do not know, I am Jake’s attorney and manager, but more importantly his very dear friend and roommate. The truth about the current situation is as follows: Jake has been under the weather for at least a week, may be closer to two weeks, and was told he had the flu and was run down from his travel schedule. Despite not feeling well, Jake made a point to make a show for our very good friend, Sinn Bohdi, in Las Vegas. On that flight, Jake experienced extreme chest tightness and trouble breathing. Upon landing in Las Vegas, he was rushed to the hospital where we learned he had pneumonia in both lungs and had frighteningly little lung function. He is being aggressively treated for that now.

During his testing, the doctors also noticed an abnormality in his brain. The initial diagnosis is that this is from his time taking bumps as a wrestler, but Jake has a neurologist who is investigating. At this point, Jake’s condition is not known completely. It will take some time to find out the answers. However, to clear up a few rumors, Jake did not pass out on the plane. He was alert and awake while notifying the flight attendants of his pain and shortness of breath. Jake was induced to a “coma-like” state in order to effectively treat the pneumonia. Jake has not been completely alert until now due to that treatment. Drugs or alcohol have no bearing on this event despite the internet rumors. Jake was doing great and received a clean bill of health on his PET scan after his leg cancer procedure in May. Hopefully that is still the case now.

To the many supporters, thank you very much from Jake’s team and family. Jake is awake and alert now. It will be his decision when to update the public from this point forward. We appreciate your respect for our privacy.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
