Breaking News: Jake Roberts Says He Has Cancer, Undergoing Surgery This Week

Sad news to report today, 2014 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jake Roberts has been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor behind his knee.

Roberts spoke to TMZ.com over the weekend and said that he noticed a tumor behind his knee last month. He got it tested and on Friday, doctors told him the tumor came back positive for cancer, and the cancer is slowly growing into his muscle tissue.

Jake is scheduled to go under the knife on Tuesday and still plans to wrestle for Jersey Championship Wrestling on March 14th. He told TMZ:

“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.”

As for his upcoming induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, Jake says nothing will stop him from getting to New Orleans for the ceremony.
