Jake Roberts doing better after surgery

 
 

WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts is doing slightly better after undergoing lung surgery to have him breathe better.

“He is breathing better but still on ventilator. In the moments of Jake being awake from sedation today he was telling jokes & messing with nurses! That is a good sign,” said his friend Nick Cvjetkovich, better known to wrestling fans as Sinn Bodhi or as Kizarny in the WWE.

Roberts has been in the hospital since this past weekend after falling ill while on a flight to Vegas to participate in an event for Bodhi. He had been suffering from a double pneumonia and an identified mass was also found in his head which is yet to be diagnosed.
