WWE SmackDown Announcer Jim Ross provided an update on his blog (www.jrsbarbq.com) regarding Gerald Brisco’s heart surgery. Ross stated the following: “Jerry’s heart surgeon had an emergency surgery to perform on Thursday, his surgery day, and now Jerry is re-scheduled for July 9…I told Jerry that the good news is that his heart condition is such that the WWE Hall of Famer can safely wait until next Thursday while the other individual who bumped Jerry was in an apparent life threatening situation. Jerry had prepared himself mentally for his heart surgery and now must patiently wait, if that’s possible, for next Thursday’s procedure.”
