Jake “The Snake” Roberts diagnosed with cancerous tumor

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.
