“I Have Cancer”
Feb 23, 2014 - by Steve Gerweck
Jake “The Snake” Roberts told TMZ.COM that he has just been diagnosed
with a cancerous tumor behind his knee and will be going under emergency
surgery on Tuesday. The soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer noticed a tumor
behind his knee the size of a half dollar last month and had it tested.
Unfortunately the doctors came back to him with bad news on Friday as it
tested positive for cancer. Roberts said cancer or not, he will honor his
appearance on March 14 at Jersey Championship Wrestling and nothing will
stop him from going to New Orleans to be inducted into the WWE Hall of
Fame. “If the devil can’t defeat me, cancer doesn’t stand a chance in
hell! Pray for sick children who face this horrible disease ’cause The
Snake will be just fine,’ Roberts told TMZ.COM.
