TMZ.com posted exclusive details on the health of WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
The publication confirms he was diagnosed with double pneumonia and he fell ill on a flight on Wednesday from Atlanta to Las Vegas. He was rushed to the hospital via ambulance when he landed and has been in and out of consciousness ever since.
Sinn Bodhi (the former Kizarny in WWE and a close friend of Roberts) told TMZ that Jake was told two weeks ago that he had the flu and needed to rest. Apparently Jake has been in pain ever since.
Roberts is currently in the Intensive Care Unit of a Las Vegas hospital and his immune system is in “bad shape.”
