Sinn Bodhi, who has been with Jake “The Snake” Roberts in Las Vegas all week, gave a update on Jake’s medical condition oh his Facebook page last night:
“UPDATE on Jake The Snake Roberts: Jake is NOT in a coma! Please don’t believe crappy gossip… Jake still has Phnemonia. He is not getting enough oxygen so he has been sedated and put on a ventilator… (Sedated only because the procedure is painful). Doctors have to wait & see how he responds before they can continue with MRI & other tests as the Ventilator is inhibiting bu nessecary… And until the Phnemonia is cleared up it is preventing Docs from seeing what the underlying problems are. Docs can only speculate on how long he will be in this state. #GetBetterJake You can leave Jake Get-well messages on Twitter @JakeSnakeDDT”
WrestlingINC.com noted before that Jake’s lawyer said in a statement that Jake was induced by doctors into a “coma-like state”in order to effectively treat his pneumonia.
PWInsider reports that people close to Batista say he still feels let down & unhappy with how WWE booked his return earlier this year. It was noted to PWInsider that if Batista returns to WWE at all, it will be to begin a program for WrestleMania 31. Batista has expressed interest in working a retirement match against Triple H, but there is now word from WWW that they might go in that direction.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts has been hospitalized & was in intensive care unit at a Las Vegas hospital since passing out on a plane Wednesday & was in a coma until Thursday afternoon. Roberts has now been transported to another hospital this afternoon where he is undergoing further test. Roberts reportedly has double pneumonia & doctors have said he has fluid in his lungs & a mass on his brain.
