AEW and NJPW’s Forbidden Door 2 event is set to go down in Toronto on June 25th. This will be a huge night for pro wrestling, but Jim Ross will have to sit this one out.
Jim Ross was in rough shape during the premiere episode of AEW Collision. He had black eye, and his voice was shot.
After AEW Collision on June 17th, Jim Ross announced that he is taking break to heal. It seems that break will extend past June 25th’s Forbidden Door event.
Jim Ross tweeted out to address fans. He is excited about seeing Bryan Danielson vs Kazuchika Okada, but he won’t be in the building to see it in person.
Looks like I’m likely to miss seeing my amazing friend @rainmakerXokada this run. Okada vs @bryandanielson will raise the bar significantly! Guaranteed classic!
We will have to see how AEW and NJPW Forbidden Door 2 pans out. Jim Ross wishes that he could be there, but at least he will get to watch from home.
