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.

Thursday, August 28, 2014 5:50 PM EDT Update: Sinn Bodhi (formerly Kizarny in WWE) wrote on Facebook that he was at the hospital with Jake "all night" and that he's resting comfortably.  The following is from Facebbok:

End update.

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.

    Hope the mass in his brain isn’t the cancer spreading. My father had lung cancer, was diagnosed in JUne 2009….They used chemo and radiation and and in August of 2009 doctors figured it was all gone as there was no more cancer in his lungs or lower body. In August of 2010 had trouble remembering and walking, got checked in Sept and it had spread to his brain. Did radiation and chemo and surgery and he was gone Nov 9th…lasted only 2 months after he was diagnosed. So hopefully it’s different with Jake as once it hits the brain it doesn’t take long.

    The story is all over the web. Fox Sports is covering it, as is Fox news, TMZ, MTV, and the Las Vegas Review Journal. All are reporting the same story: Jake was diagnosed with the flu 2 – 3 weeks ago, but went against doctor’s orders to get bed rest. He suffered with pain and continued to be very active. On a flight to Vegas he passed out. Once he got to the hospital, he was diagnosed with double pneumonia, complete with fluid on the lungs. At the same time, the doctors noticed a mass on his brain. It is currently being tested to see if it is cancerous.
    Best wishes, Jake. You truly are a Ring Legend. I know you can beat this.
