Jake 'The Snake' Roberts

Hospitalized With Double Pneumonia

Exclusive Details

0828-jake-the-snake-roberts-wwe-03Jake "The Snake" Roberts was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital Wednesday night ... and doctors say he has double pneumonia.

The WWE Hall of Famer fell ill on a flight from Atlanta to Vegas ... and was immediately hospitalized when he landed. We're told he's been in and out of consciousness ever since.

Wrestler Sinn Bodhi -- who has been at Jake's bedside all night -- tells us Roberts went to a doctor 2 weeks ago, and was told he had the flu and needed rest.

Bodhi says Jake's been in pain since ... but didn't think it was a big deal because of the prognosis.

We're told Roberts is in ICU, and his immune system is in bad shape. Doctors are letting him rest for a few days while they take more tests.

Bodhi adds, "Right now, we're all just staying positive."

My dad allegedly died from double pneumonia back in March from a plan trip from Hawaii to Philadelphia. My prayers are with his family because they told my family that my dad would get better but they couldn't culture anything from his lungs and passed a week and 1/2 later.

Doctors misdiagnose ALL the time! Your body gives you warning signs and never ignore them. A flu diagnosis may have been correct on that day, but if conditions worsens and you have pain all this guy needed was a stethoscope on his chest and back again and a chest X-ray. Totally ridiculous he is in a ICU now fighting for his life. Grrrr
