JR Updates Edge’s Status & Explains His Kurt Angle Comments

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"I received an email from Steve ‘Dr. Death’ Williams and apparently cancer has returned to once again challenge my dear pal. Cancer returned to his Stoma and Doc has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment which is the only way this matter can be addressed. I truly admire Doc’s faith and his believe in God not to mention the mental and physical toughness that this former wrestling great possesses. If you have it in your heart to help us raise funds to purchase a hands free, talking devise for Doc, please check out www.wrestlersrescue.org. Doc has some limited wrestling engagements upcoming and is still working for Southwest Airlines at the Denver Airport."

"We received some unique feedback on the thoughts I wrote this weekend on the Kurt Angle arrest situation. Let me make it clear that Angle has not been convicted of any thing. I never even mentioned the allegations regarding alleged physical abuse to a woman which, by the way, I do not believe. The issue is that when external factors adversely affect one’s life and when one’s life is under such a professional microscope and is overly scrutinized there are times when one simply needs to take him or herself out of the game for a while to regroup. Call it a vacation or even a leave of absence but stepping away and being able to exhale sometimes isn’t a bad thing."

"Got a text message from Edge who recently received an order of his favorite, J.R.’s Chipolte Ketchup, on which I think that he is ‘hooked.’ Edge said that he planned to start his rehab this week on his surgically repaired Achilles tendon. Usually it is approximately a 6 month healing process for these types of injuries but that is not definitive. Mother Nature always has a say in how fast one’s body heals. I hope Edge is back in time for WM26 in Arizona. Time will tell as no one can absolutely say one way or another at this time when Edge will be cleared to go 100% and there is no sense in coming back to the ring until then."
