Kyle Magee, the lawyer, manager and roommate of WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts, wrote in a letter to Bill Apter that the mass discovered in the head of Roberts was described as a brain abnormality. Magee's theory is that the abnormality was a result of all the bumps Roberts had taken during his career.
He did clarify that Roberts was not unconscious on his flight to Las Vegas and instead informed flight attendances that he was in severe pain and was having shortness of breath. Roberts was rushed to a hospital and then put into an induced coma. Magee also noted that Roberts had been sick for around a week and still wanted to do Sinn Bodhi's show in Las Vegas on Friday.
