WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross is currently hospitalized in Norman, Oklahoma with a broken rib. Ross took an unplanned bump after Jay White shoved Juice Robinson into the barricade at the NJPW G1 Special in San Francisco. The barricade caused the announcer’s table to push into Ross who instantly fell over and injured himself.
It is to be noted that the injury was not part of a storyline, Ross noted on Twitter that the bump was not part of the show. Josh Barnett also told fans on Twitter that his actions on the show were neither planned nor a work and expressed his dissatisfaction with White.
For the record, the ‘bump’ I took at ringside at #G1SanFrancisco was not storyline driven matter nor was it discussed.
I think I broke a rib.

However, a certain portion of the fans speculated that this was a work because it was posted on the AXS TV‘s Twitter account for whatever the reason might be. In coming days this segment might become an interesting angle with Barnett and White.
