“I’m cancer-free!,” Ross said in a Facebook post. “We did it! See you tonight on #AEWDynamite at 8 ET on TNT!”

In October, Ross posted on Twitter that he had skin cancer. He said radiation was likely the best treatment moving forward.

“On my way to Orlando for tonight’s AEW Dynamite,” Ross said on Twitter. “Skin cancer confirmed. Waiting on radiologist study to determine best treatment. Likely radiation. Feeling great and ready to attack.”

This is the latest health problem for Ross. He previously had an operation on his eye in 2018 that caused some damage to his eyesight in one of his eyes.

Ross made his wrestling debut in 1974. He has worked for numerous promotions over this time. He began his career with the NWA Tri-State, Mid-South Wrestling, and Universal Wrestling Federation from 1974 through 1987.

He also was employed by Jim Crockett Promotions and World Championship Wrestling. He then worked for World Wrestling Federation and World Wrestling Entertainment.

Ross also worked for New Japan Pro Wrestling. He has been with All Elite Wrestling since 2019.
