The legendary Jim Ross says he is now cancer-free.
JR first announced his skin cancer diagnosis back in late October, noting that he had the issue for more than one year. He began undergoing treatments at the end of November.
In an update, Ross took to Twitter this afternoon and announced that he has beat the skin cancer.
“I’m CANCER FREE! We did it! See you tonight on #AEWDYNAMITE at 8 ET! [folded hands emoji x 2] [cowboy hat face emoji],” he wrote.
JR originally planned to work while undergoing the 22 radiation treatments, but he has been away from AEW programming since they began. He will make his return tonight during the New Year’s Smash edition of Dynamite on TNT, which will air live from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville.
Stay tuned for more. You can see JR’s full tweet below:
