Jake Roberts denies Jim Ross’ update on his health

After Jim Ross released the podcast, the wrestling fans were worried about Jake Roberts’ health. The DDT creator has already seen much of darker days regarding his health and fans themselves don’t want him to go through the same again.

However, Jake The Snake Roberts posted a tweet on Twitter, denying Jim Ross’ words on his podcast. Roberts claimed he is fine and is not suffering from any health problems.

The tweet said, “Hey guys once again someone wants to make a splash on the internet and what better way is there than putting out Jake Roberts is in bad health. Totally untrue. I’m going to be around a long time.”

Roberts has missed a lot of time in the ring due to his past health issues. This new incarnation of him wants to be around the business for a long time.

Recently, Roberts spoke about wishing he had taken better care of his body over the years and needs to take oxygen to help him breathe. This might be the reason Ross noted that Roberts’ issues are serious and the former WWE superstar needs everyone’s prayers.

Ross said, “I really appreciate everybody’s support and patience with me over time. Sometimes I’m a little cranky, but you have to understand that I’m never pain free anymore. That’s what is challenging.”
