Jim Ross

• Kane’s Segment For Tonight’s SmackDown Live Revealed

WWE has announced that Old School WWF Legend Kane and his tag team partner Daniel Bryan (together known as Team Hell No) will appear on Miz TV on tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live.

Below is what WWE posted:

Team Hell No kick off SmackDown LIVE on “Miz TV”

“Just days before they challenge The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE Extreme Rules, Daniel Bryan & Kane will be joining The Miz for what looks to be a must-see edition of “Miz TV” that will kick off SmackDown LIVE tonight at 8/7 C.

There’s no love lost between Bryan and The Awesome One, as the leader of The “Yes!” Movement looks to get his hands on The A-Lister, especially after Harper & Rowan’s attacks led to The Miz eliminating Bryan from the Gauntlet Match for a WWE Championship opportunity. Will Bryan be able to keep his hands off The Awesome One and focus on The Bludgeon Brothers, or will The Miz eat a punch to the face from his longtime rival?”

• WWE Hall of Famer’s Injury More Serious Than Expected – Dealing With A Lot Of Pain

As we noted before, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross announced on Twitter that he was injured during a spot at NJPW G1 Special in San Francisco during the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship match.

Good Ol’ JR noted on Twitter that he might have broken a rib:

The injury occurred when Jay White threw Juice Robinson into the guardrail and the guardrail hit the announcers table (where Jim Ross & Josh Barnett were sitting). The guardrail hit a monitor down and this led to JR being knocked out of it chair by it. Below is a GIF of White throwing Juice into the guardrail and JR falling down:

Barnett got very angry at this and went after White.

The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that JR’s injury is more serious than previously expected:

“Ross was diagnosed with issues involving both his lungs and ribs and was told to be cautious at the present time for fear of contracting pneumonia. The rib injury has led to very significant pain when he moves, coughs, or yawns.”
