SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Jim Ross will be taking a short hiatus from the AEW commentary desk as he goes through radiation to treat his recent skin care diagnosis. Ross noted on Twitter that he has 22 radiation treatments ahead of him and that they would keep him away until December 29.
Due to my skin cancer care totaling 22 radiation treatments starting Monday, I will hopefully return to the announce desk on December 29 in Jacksonville.
@TonyKhan supports me on this strategy which has been a blessing.
My thanks for all your support. 🙏🤠
