It’s a fair reason. Commentary is one of the most important things about any given wrestling show as they tell the fans what they are supposed to see. They are basically the tour guides of a wrestling show and it can be very important to hear what they have to say. Now though, we might not be hearing from the most famous commentator in wrestling history for a bit.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, AEW’s Jim Ross will begin twenty two straight days of radiation therapy on Monday to treat his skin cancer. As a result, Ross could be missing a few weeks of AEW television, which would include three episodes of AEW Dynamite. Ross has not announced that he will be missing any shows. There is no word on who would replace Ross if he is unable to work the shows.
Ross has been a big deal in AEW. Check out some of his work in the company:
Opinion: First and foremost, hopefully Ross gets healthy as this is a pretty serious situation. Just like anyone else, Ross’ health comes first and if he has to miss a few weeks of Dynamite, so be it. I’m not sure who is going to replace Ross for a few weeks, but ultimately he can be back whenever he is ready and AEW will welcome him with open arms at any time.
How has Ross done in AEW? Who should fill in for him if he has to miss time? Let us know in the comments below.
