WWE legend Jake "The Snake" Roberts has been hospitalized and is in intensive care after being diagnosed with double pneumonia, WrestlingInc.com reported Thursday.
A hospital spokeswoman in Las Vegas confirmed to USA TODAY Sports that Roberts was admitted.
According to the WrestlingInc.com, Roberts flew Wednesday to Las Vegas to appear in a show promoted by Sinn Bodhi, and became unconscious on the plane.
Roberts was in a coma that lasted nearly 24 hours but was out of it as of Thursday night, according to the website.
Bodhi tweeted an update on Roberts' condition Thursday night.
Roberts' good friend, former professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, tweeted that he had been in contact with Roberts' girlfriend.
Roberts, one of professional wrestling's most iconic stars during the golden era of the late 1980s and early 1990s, was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame prior to Wrestlemania in April.
