After collapsing on the flight, Roberts was taken to a Vegas hospital, where he remains in in intensive care, according to PWInsider. Doctors have since diagnosed him with double pneumonia.

Fellow former professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, who is a close friend of Roberts has taken to Twitter to update fans of the WWE personality on his health status. “Just spoke to @JakeSnakeDDT 's girlfriend,” Page tweeted Thursday. “Jake is now conscious but still fading in and out. Please keep the prayers coming.”

Two weeks ago, Roberts was diagnosed with the flu and advised to take some time off to rest, wrestler Sinn Bodhi told TMZ. “Right now, we’ll all just staying positive,” said Bodhi, who has been at Roberts' bedside as doctors continue to stabilize him. Though Roberts is in pretty bad shape, he’s apparently more concerned with his fans.

Roberts was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year before WrestleMania XXX.
