AEW Dynamite commentator Jim Ross is set to undergo radiation treatments for his skin cancer diagnosis, and he revealed the plan for treatment on social media. He will be undergoing a total of 22 radiation treatments starting this Monday, and because of that he will be taking some time away from his AEW Dynamite commentary duties for a bit. He revealed that he hopes to be back at the announce desk for the December 29th show in Jacksonville, and also added that Tony Khan is fully supportive. You can read his post below.
Ross wrote "Due to my skin cancer care totaling 22 radiation treatments starting Monday, I will hopefully return to the announce desk on December 29 in Jacksonville. @TonyKhan supports me on this strategy which has been a blessing. My thanks for all your support."
