Jim Ross Home After Health Scare

jim rossWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back at home resting comfortably after a health scare that kept him in the hospital for a few days.

It all started a few weeks ago with Ross putting in a lot of time and effort to prepare for his debut as a boxing broadcaster for Fox Sports which took place on Memorial Day.  Things didn’t slow down as he then headed in Chicago to do media to promote his one man show in the city.  Following the show, he was able to return to his home in Oklahoma but not for long as he was back on the road, this time to Las Vegas to attend the Cauliflower Alley Club and introduce Terry Taylor who was being given The Iron Mike award.

Things started to go south for Ross on his way back home from Vegas.

Well, it’s a good thing that he caved in to his wife’s wishes.  After a battery of tests, it was determined that Ross’ symptoms were due to medication he had been taken.

Something pretty scary was also discovered as doctors also told the 62-year-old that he has suffered a minor undiagnosed stroke in the past according to a report on TMZ. The doctors changed his medication and he was released from the hospital on Saturday night. It looks like JR is doing much better as he took lots of time on Sunday to respond to questions and comments on Twitter.  And don’t worry … he also has a fresh podcast coming out on Tuesday night.
