AEW’s Jim Ross suffered a rough fall over the weekend while traveling to Charlotte for the Battle of The Belts special on TNT.
Ross originally revealed the fall in a tweet made on Saturday afternoon, revealing a black eye and some swelling on his face. He then took to Twitter on Monday night and posted an update, revealing that he fell.
“Fell Saturday on way to Charlotte. Black Eye..soreness,” he wrote. “Feeling rough. Cancer update Tuesday. Whew! [cowboy hat man emoji],” JR wrote along with an updated photo of the shiner.
JR did commentary at Battle of The Belts with Excalibur and Tony Schiavone.
