As noted earlier, 2014 WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts will undergo surgery to remove a cancerous tumor behind his knee this Tuesday. He released the following statement today:

"Thank for for all of the support and well wishes about my procedure tomorrow. The doctors are optimistic that the growth is contained and tomorrow's removal should take care of the problem. However, we will not know for sure until it is taken out and further tests are done. I am fine and just as optimistic as the doctors. Did my DDP Yoga this morning and looking forward to all of my upcoming appearances with the fans. I will keep you posted but no need to worry about the Snake."
