Jake Roberts Tweeted the following statement:
Thank for for all of the support and well wishes about my procedure tomorrow. The doctors are optimistic that the growth is contained and tomorrow’s removal should take care of the problem. However, we will not know for sure until it is taken out and further tests are done. I am fine and just as optimistic as the doctors. Did my DDP Yoga this morning and looking forward to all of my upcoming appearances with the fans. I will keep you posted but no need to worry about the Snake.
As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com (via TMZ), Roberts has a cancerous tumor behind his knee that is growing into the muscle. He’s set to undergo emergency surgery on Tuesday to have it removed. He still plans to honor independent bookings and appear at the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony to accept his induction.
