Jim Ross injured at the NJPW G1 Special, says it was not a planned spot

By Jason Powell, Prowrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Jim Ross stated on Twitter that he suffered a rib injury when he was knocked over during the Jay White vs. Juice Robinson match at Saturday’s NJPW G1 Special. “For the record, the ‘bump’ I took at ringside at #G1SanFrancisco was not storyline driven matter nor was it discussed,” Ross wrote late Sunday night. “I think I broke a rib. Couldn’t put my roller bag in the overhead today after a sleepless Sat night.”

Powell’s POV: I confirmed a report that Ross is in the emergency room today to have the rib injury examined. Here’s wishing him the best with the injury. In related news, Ross also responded to a fan on Twitter to note his broadcast partner Josh Barnett is a “valued member of the AXSTV team” and added that neither one of them will be leaving.
