WWE Hall of Fame 2014 inductee Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has battled a bunch of personal demons over the last 30 years or so of his life. A man who was once an alcoholic and addicted to drugs such as pain killers, Roberts was nearly on his death bed before long-time friend Diamond Dallas Page managed to help get him better.
It was terrible to see updated pictures of Roberts before he got his life back on track. Even though he’s getting up there in age, he’s still way too young to pass away even though most of the guys that he has worked with in the 80′s and early 90′s have been dead for many many years.
Roberts underwent surgery not that long ago to remove cancer from his leg, but according to DDP who spoke to TMZ and said the following:
They got the reports back. The cancer, they’ve gotten most of it all out, they think they have to go in and get a little bit more out of his leg, but it’s not threatening anymore or life-threatening. He was really scared and so were we”. DDP told TMZ via NoDQ.com
Here’s a look at the actual run in with TMZ cameras.
