Jake 'The Snake' Roberts announces he's off oxygen, has returned to AEW

Roberts was diagnosed with COPD in 2020.

Jake "The Snake" Roberts has provided an update on his health. 

The 67-year-old posted to social media on Wednesday that he is back at AEW and no longer requires oxygen supplementation as part of his treatment for COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). 

"Off oxygen for good!! Standing tall doing great. At AEW AGAIN!! Sweet life I’m living!!" Roberts wrote on Twitter

Roberts revealed on a podcast in November 2020 that he has been diagnosed with the condition

“I don't get the right amount of oxygen into my blood and that's not good. I don't know how much it's going to limit me and my future. We're testing it today for the first time to try to go do something. I know that without the oxygen if I talk for about 20 seconds, I'm done. I can't go anymore. It just is not there. So this is going to be something that I'm gonna have to work with,” he said of his condition. (h/t Post Wrestling).
