Roberts says he has a cancerous tumor behind his knee. He told TMZ.com that he will have surgery on Tuesday to remove it.

Roberts lives in the Atlanta area with another wrestler, Diamond Dallas Page, who has helped the former star recover from drug and alcohol addiction.

Roberts will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in April.
