Jim Ross Reveals Diagnosis Of Skin Cancer

Best wishes go out to the legendary announcer

AEW announcer Jim Ross announced a diagnosis of skin cancer on his Twitter earlier Saturday.

Ross tweeted two days ago that he'd been dealing with a potential skin cancer issue for some time, and had underwent a CAT scan. The legendary broadcaster revealed the results today, adding that he'll likely need to undergo radiation treatment to deal with the illness.

Ross tweeted Saturday, "On my way to Orlando for tonight’s @AEW Dynamite. Skin cancer confirmed. Waiting on radiologist study to determine best treatment. Likely radiation. Feeling great and ready to attack. Thanks for the support from so many."

After officially parting ways with WWE in the spring of 2019, Ross signed with All Elite Wrestling, as both an announcer and as a senior adviser. He is currently the lead voice of AEW Dynamite, as well as for the promotion's quarterly pay-per-views, and has made some appearances on new series AEW Rampage. Ross also co-hosts the "Grilling JR" podcast alongside Conrad Thompson.

Cultaholic extends its best wishes to Mr. Ross for a full and speedy recovery.
