Prayers are needed for WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, as he confirmed this weekend that he is now undergoing a battle with skin cancer.
The update came after posted a graphic photo of his leg and was getting it checked out by doctors.
The 69-year-old announcer has been a part of All Elite Wrestling since it’s debut in 2019 as its lead announcer and senior advisor. Before then, Ross was part of the WWE from 1993 until March of 2019.
Ross then signed a three-year deal with AEW in April and has been a full-time announcer for them after being relegated to part-time status with WWE towards the end of his tenure.
During his 26-year reign in WWE, many considered Ross the best wrestling announcer and commentator ever. Ross was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame back in 2007 during Wrestlemania 23 weekend.
We at Pro Sports Extra wish Good Old JR the best of luck in his battle against cancer and will continue to hope to hear him during AEW broadcasts, which he is normally a part of on Wednesday night’s for AEW Dynamite.
