WWE Legend Jim Ross Confirms That His Wife Has Passed Away After Car Accident


It’s a sad day for the WWE family and even sports fans in general as WWE legend Jim Ross took to Twitter to confirm that his wife had passed away on Wednesday after being put on life support due to a car accident.

Earlier today, TMZ confirmed how bad things were and how the family was praying for a miracle.

“WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross says his wife is “being kept alive via life support equipment” after a bad car accident earlier this week … and is now describing her brain injury as “catastrophic.”

As we previously reported, Jan Ross was riding her Vespa home from the gym Monday night when she was struck from behind by another car. She was not wearing a helmet and suffered multiple skull fractures. 

“We hope that the swelling of Jan’s brain will subside soon as it must for her to survive,” Jim explained in a blog post … “It’s that simple.”

“Nonetheless my little, Italian angel who loves her Steelers and all things Pittsburgh is fighting for all’s she worth to save her life.”

Jim added, “I will fully admit that there has been no experience in my life that could have prepared me for this life changing week. To see one’s life partner and love of one’s life being kept alive via life support equipment is tragically heartbreaking.”

“My wife would be so moved to know how many of you are praying for her.”
