As Jim Ross might say “Don’t worry about the mule, just load the wagon” as the AEW announcer is heading to work after a recent hospital visit.

On May 23rd, Jim Ross announced on social media that he had been taken to the emergency room after struggling with shortness of breath. As a result of the issue, Ross missed AEW Double or Nothing, sitting out the show as he began his recovery.
