Jim Ross has never done anything the easy way, and he’s continued that theme just hours ahead of AEW Collision.
Posting on social media, the WWE Hall of Famer shared a photo of a nasty-looking black eye, commenting that he’d suffered a bad fall. However, he said that he’s still heading to Chicago for the debut of AEW Collision.
Bad fall this morning.
Still headed to Chicago for Collision!

In a recent post on X, Jim Ross has stated he is “hopeful” of returning to AEW for All In.
