Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he made a name for himself as a commentator in WWE, delivering some of the most iconic moments in the history of pro wrestling. Jim Ross also has a long history of health issues, including his Bell’s Palsy. Ross also suffers unbearable pain while traveling in airplanes.

The WWE Hall of Famer revealed in October he was diagnosed with skin cancer and would undergo as many as 22 radiation treatments. He then announced he was cancer free.

While speaking during a recent “Ask JR Live” episode on AdFree Shows.com, Jim Ross expressed his doubt over appearing at Starrcast V. He revealed that he suffers unbearable pain while traveling on airplanes.

“My foot swells so badly on the airplanes and the pain is just a little bit unbearable. Today was a horrible, horrible day,” he said.”‘Cause I was in the airplane for so damn long, and the pressure of the cabin and all this stuff and just a bunch of rigmarole … It’s going to be great, it’s going to be a hell of an event. I’d like to go just to watch, so I don’t know yet.”


Jim Ross is also suffering from complications after chemotherapy. We will have to wait and see whether Jim Ross will be able to attend Starrcast V or not.
