Raj Giri of WrestlingInc.com is reporting that Jake "The Snake" Roberts was hospitalized in Las Vegas on Thursday. According to his report, Roberts lost consciousness on a flight to Vegas on Wednesday and has been unconscious ever since. He was transported from the airplane to a hospital via ambulance.
Apparently Roberts has double pneumonia, his lungs are filled with fluid and there is a mass on his brain.

Richard Reacts: Raj is a credible source when it comes to Jake Roberts news as I know he's got a connection to Diamond Dallas Page and has interviewed him on a number of occasions. So far, I haven't heard anything to update on this but it certainly doesn't sound good.
After getting sober and being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, Roberts had a cancer scar that required surgery. In July, he noted that he was cancer free.
