Jim Ross Gives Injury Update on Latest Podcast, Says Situation Was ‘Inept’ and ‘Dangerous’

jim ross njpw injury injured g1 special inept dangerous update

Jim Ross spoke on his latest podcast about the injury he suffered at NJPW‘s G1 Special in San Francisco … calling the situation inept, dangerous and unnecessary.

The legendary announcer kicked off this week’s Jim Ross Report by thanking everyone who sent him well wishes. He then explained doctors say he has bruised ribs and a bruised lung on the left side … plus, his sternum is “out of whack.”

Doctors are also worried about Ross catching pneumonia because of the lung issues. 

Due to the injuries, JR says he had to miss a Headlock on Hunger event and a Glenn Jacobs rally.

Juice Robinson talked about the unfortunate incident on the latest episode of X-Pac 1-2-360 and said the ring crew told he and Jay White that the guardrails would be interlocked during the show. That clearly didn’t happen, however, and the chaotic incident led to JR getting hurt. 

While discussing the ring crew doing this, Ross said: “All I know is that the situation was inept, it was dangerous, and it was unnecessary.”

Josh Barnett joined Jim later in the episode to talk about the G1 Special and the incident was discussed in further detail. The two announcers talk about White/Robinson apologizing after the event and Josh says he lectured them during the exchange.

Barnett also explains why he stepped up to Jay White, which can be heard in the full episode below.

    Don’t get why JR still wants to do these shows. Just go back to WWE on easy schedule, do stuff for the network and call matches in post production like MYC 2. Or work an easy schedule for Impact.

      JR doesn’t need to ask you about which shows he would work and which he won’t.

      Mind your own business

        Go fuck yourself you punk bitch.

        Agreed this dude is an idiot (look at his reply for evidence). JR is the best commentator of all time and I’d rather hear him on NJPW shows because Raw and Smackdown right now are awful, so they can keep Byron Saxton and whichever other dud commentators WWE chooses to use

          He’s a massive troll and does nothing but spews garbage, hurls derogatory insults and leads a miserable existence in his dark, stinky and cockroach infested basement. Don’t bother!
          LOL

    this was a great show but this was definitely not a good look for njpw. it’s one thing for hiromu to get injured during a botched stunt but a 70 year old guy doing commentary should not be getting injured without knowing it’s going to happen.
