Jim Ross Provides An Update On His Health, Talks CM Punk Still Recovering

AEW announcer and Senior Advisor “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross took to an episode his Grilling Jr podcast to provide an update on his health, where he revealed that he is trying out some new medicines and he is trying to get healed. Jim also said his doctor is really working hard to get him back on his feet, but this takes time and patience.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“I’m trying to get healed here. I’ve tried new medicines. My doctor is really working hard to get me back on my feet, so to speak, no pun intended. So, you know, it just takes time and patience. I think I have time. I hope I have time (he laughs), but I don’t have a lot of patience. So we’ll see how it works out.”

Jim Ross also talked about how he knew CM Punk was in the building on the night he made his return to AEW TV and that everyone really missed him, including the fans, but he is not sure if the current AEW World Champion has been cleared to compete, though he knows Punk will be cleared and that he is under good doctor’s care. Jim Ross then talked about how Punk is a tough guy and everybody wants to see him and Moxley beat the shit out of each other as well as how this is arguably the biggest main event AEW has ever had.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“I knew he was in the building. I saw him briefly earlier in the day in the trainer’s room getting some attention for him. He sure has been missed. There’s no doubt about it. I think the crowd’s reaction would indicate the same. They’re ready to see him.”

“I still don’t know how healthy the guy is. I asked on air if he’s been cleared to wrestle, and nobody knew. I know he will be cleared and I know that he’s under good doctor’s care. This process has been ongoing. He’s still in the process of healing as far as I’m concerned until I get word that he’s 100%. I’m going to play it by ear. What else do you do?”

“Punk is a tough guy. Everybody wants to see him and Moxley beat the shit out of each other, and you can count your bottom dollar that’s what they’re gonna do. They both have that pride and all that. It’s gonna be arguably the biggest main event we’ve ever had considering all the ramifications going in, injuries, and all these things. I’m excited about calling that match. I think it’s gonna be fun as hell.”
