Pro Wrestling Since 1997


“I Have Cancer”


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.

    As someone who has lost several family member to cancer, I wish Mr. Roberts the best in his fight against this disease.

    if I read this right, Roberts may have caught this early enough. if that’s the case, this will likely give him better odds of surviving.

    The man finally gets sober and his reward for it is a cancerous tumor. This sucks.

    @JDStorm, I think I read it the same way too, especially for it to be that size. Hope they nip it in the bud and he has a great recovery.
