WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts has reportedly been hospitalized after collapsing on a flight from Atlanta to Las Vegas.
The wrestler was taken to a Las Vegas hospital upon landing, where he has been in and out of consciousness and since been diagnosed with double pneumonia, according to TMZ Sports.
Raj Giri of WrestlingInc.com adds that doctors also found fluid in his lungs and a mass on his brain.
Fellow wrestler Sinn Bodhi, who is with Roberts at the hospital, told TMZ Sports that Roberts went to the doctor two weeks ago and was told he had the flu and needed to rest. Roberts continued feeling ill, but opted not to go to the doctor before his flight to Sin City, not knowing the flu was actually pneumonia.
After speaking with Roberts’ girlfriend, retired wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, tweeted that Roberts is now conscious “but still fading in and out.”
