Jim Ross Health Update: AEW Hiatus Insights and Return Expectations

Jim Ross, the iconic voice of AEW, recently provided a health update during his temporary absence from AEW duties. Ross, who has been on a week-plus hiatus following a June fall, shared insights on his condition during a recent episode of Grilling JR, as reported by Wrestling Inc.

Legendary AEW Commentator, Jim Ross

Discussing his health, Ross stated,

"[I] had a busy week at the doctors, and trying to get all these little things taken care of. They’re not little things if you let them go. Anyway, I’m getting better I think."

Despite affirming that he has no immediate retirement plans, Ross confirmed an extended absence from work for a few more weeks. While he didn't specify a return date, Ross emphasized the importance of time off to allow his leg to heal, particularly by avoiding air travel.

"Then we will just move on, you know, and hopefully it'll work out," he said. "I had a long doctor's meeting yesterday — over two hours — so just trying to get better... Getting old is the s***s."

Fans eagerly await Ross's return to the commentary booth, as the wrestling legend prioritizes his health and recovery in the coming weeks.
