Jake Roberts diagnosed with COPD lung disease

We send best wishes to AEW star/WWE Hall Of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts as he battles COPD.

Roberts had actually revealed this over a month ago on Twitter but he went into detail on what he is going through during an interview on the Premier Live TV YouTube channel.

“About a week ago, I couldn’t quit coughing and I couldn’t breathe,” Roberts said. He said that he had to be hospitalized for a few days.

He said, “What I got is worse than COVID. It’s something that was passed down to me through the bloodline. It’s not your happy camper stuff. It’s issues with COPD.”

Roberts said that he doesn’t get the right amount of oxygen into his blood and he is not sure how limited he will be in the future. He also noted that he can’t talk for more than 20 seconds without an oxygen tank. COPD is a lung disease that obstructs airflow from the lungs.

You can check out the full interview below.
