A week later, JR shared that he would be undergoing 22 radiation treatments but didn't expect to miss any work. He did, however, say that he was unsure of the treatment schedule and would not compromise the integrity of AEW's programming if he felt he couldn't perform up to his standards.

Ross signed off on the November 24 episode of Dynamite by saying "We'll see you in the very near future."

Taking to Twitter Ross says that he is starting his radiation on Monday and is hoping to return to the commentary booth on the December 29 New Year's Smash episode of Dynamite.

AEW President Tony Khan replied to JR, writing the following:

"JR, everyone here at AEW wishes you the best. I think it’s a great gameplan you’ve got, we look forward to your return to commentary, hopefully in your new hometown Jacksonville FL at Daily's Place at New Year’s Smash at the end of December! We want you to kick the cancer’s ass, JR!"

On November 24, JR also posted about two additional spots on his back that the doctors discovered that had to be removed.

On behalf of Fightful, we'd like to wish Jim Ross the very best in his treatment and recovery.
