Health Update On Jim Ross, AEW Not Booking The Marriott Hotel

AEW commentator and Senior Advisor “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross recently took to his Grilling JR podcast and provided an update on the skin cancer issue he has been dealing with, which he needs 22 radiation treatments for.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“Next week is going to be a touch and go week for me.” “On Monday, I’m supposed to get two cancer spots cut out of my back. They said, ‘Well, it’s only a few stitches.’ Yea, but I’m getting ready to get on an airplane. They say it’s going to be bandaged. I can’t scratch it. I can’t touch them.”

“After that on Monday, I have to go to my oncologist. They’re making me a boot as they call it. The boot is what you slip on so that the radiation machine can have a target. I don’t know if it attaches or whatever, but it’s there to not give you any more radiation than you need and only on the spot that is affected.”

Jim Ross also spoke about how several AEW talents paid tribute to Eddie Guerrero at the Full Gear PPV like he was still alive and well and how the promotion made sure they did not book the Marriott Hotel to stay at, which is the site of Eddie Guerrero’s tragic passing as it would have been a bit hard for a lot of people to accept and comprehend.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“Eddie’s anniversary of his death, ironically in Minneapolis, was this past Saturday while we were all in town.” “It was brought to my attention that he died in The Marriott, one block away from where we stayed. I know that it was made specifically that we were not to stay at The Marriott, because that would have been a bit hard for a lot of people to swallow. We stayed at another hotel, still downtown, Lowes, right across the street from The Target Center, which is beautiful because you can walk across the street to the building. We really respected that with Eddie. It’s funny that a lot of the talents today still respect Eddie like he was alive, still in the locker room, all those things. That shows a great love and respect that he earned. We made sure that Marriott was not in the picture.”
