Jim Ross gave another update of his health on his website. Below is what Ross said related to his third Bells Palsy attack.
Jim Ross says he received some good news that he does not have Multiple sclerosis following his third Bell’s Palsy attack last week. “We got some medical tests back this morning which eliminated me having MS which was a relief,” Ross said on jrsbarbq.com. “We have more tests scheduled next week as the process is essentially trying to eliminate issues that I might have but likely don’t.”
Ross also wrote on the WWE replacing him on the SmackDown announce team. He stated that his focus is on his health, and understands the WWE needing to move forward to develop a new announce team while he waits for more news on his health. “The way I see it, WWE had to move on without me, for now, as they have shows to do and I am unable to carry my share of the water,” Ross said. “If the new broadcast teams click and I am not needed on a weekly basis then, poor me, I will find other projects on which to work. … Until I get healthy WWE has to move forward without me and get their work done. I am pulling for Todd Grisham and Matt Striker to light it up on Friday nights.”
