Jake "the Snake" Roberts is gearing up to fight his toughest opponent yet: Cancer.

EOnline.com reports the WWE star was diagnosed with a tumor behind his knee and will undergo emergency surgery to remove the growth on Tuesday, he told TMZ. But the 58-year-old wrestler is confident in his recovery, saying, "If the devil can't defeat me, cancer doesn't stand a chance in hell!"



Roberts, whose father is late wrestler Grizzly Smith, urged fans to "pray for sick children who face this horrible disease 'cause The Snake will be just fine."
