jake robertsAs we previously reported, WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jake "The Snake" Roberts will be undergoing surgery tomorrow to remove a cancerous tumor behind his knee.

Roberts issued the following statement prior to undergoing the procedure:

"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."
