Smackdown announcer Jim Ross posted the following on his blog:
On my flight from OKC to Atlanta I had my 3rd Bells palsy attack.
I was able to reach WWE doctors who were in Jacksonville for Raw and they were able to call in the medicines I needed to get started on to slow down the paralysis. Now we just wait and see how the meds work and Mother Nature takes her course.
My plans are to tape SD tonite working with the King and perhaps even Michael Cole so we can make sure we can do the job that the product and the talents deserve.
It’s a big week for WWE as we all prepare for Bragging Rights this Sunday in Pittsburgh. I hope to be able to contribute and time will tell as the week progresses but I intend to remain optimistic and to fight thru this issue.
