Wrestling legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts is in a Las Vegas hospital and said to be in bad shape.
Roberts, 59, took a flight from Atlanta to Las Vegas Wednesday for a Sinn Bodhi show and passed out on the flight, according to WrestlingInc. He was unconscious after that and taken to a hospital where doctors discovered he has double pneumonia, fluid in his lungs and a mass on his brain.
The latest reports indicate Jake the Snake has regained consciousness.
Just spoke to @JakeSnakeDDT 's girlfriend, Jake is now conscious but still fading in and out. Please keep the prayers coming.
