That’s an acceptable reason. Wrestlers have a lot of responsibilities and details to deal with as they go about their jobs. It all boils down to being able to get in the ring and perform though, though that is not always the easiest thing to do. Occasionally a health issues can come up and cause trouble, which is currently the situation for someone who does not even get in the ring.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: That’s A Lot: WWE Reportedly Has Very High Expectations For Incoming Superstar

Earlier this week, AEW’s Jim Ross was hospitalized after suffering shortness of breath but he did not elaborate any further on the situation. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ross is suffering from the flu and elevated heart enzymes. Ross has said that he believes he will be healthy in a few days, though he is expected to miss this weekend’s AEW Double Or Nothing event.

Ross has done well in AEW. Check out his time there:

Opinion: That is something that could be worse, though now we have to wait and see just how long it takes for Ross to get well. His health is a lot more important than anything he could be doing for AEW and while it is annoying that he will have to miss the pay per view, he needs the time to heal up. Ross’ legacy is long secured so hopefully he gets better quickly so he can start adding to it again.
