Jon Moxley is off All Elite Wrestling’s All Out pay-per-view due to suffering from MRSA in his elbow.
“I’m absolutely gutted to have to deliver this news but I’d rather it come directly from me. In a nightmare scenario, a serious case of MRSA has returned in my elbow. The timing couldn’t be worse. In this circumstance I am forced to pull out of the fight 8/31 vs Omega at All Out,” Moxley tweeted.
We had the story, Moxley originally contracted the infection while working for New Japan Pro Wrestling in Japan this summer. He was limited last weekend when he worked for Northeast Wrestling and didn’t take any bumps on the elbow when he worked a singles match against Pentagon Jr.
“I apologize to all involved, most importantly the fans. I am incredibly frustrated and pissed off. I’ll have surgery this week to remove the bursa sac in my elbow and be done with it for good,” Moxley continued. “Should be a quick recovery so I will be 100% for AEW Wednesday nights on TNT.”
“Still, I expect All out to be an amazing ppv and hope all the fans out there looking for an alternative tune in. You will be blown away by AEW and be excited to be a wrestling fan. I’m looking forward to watching as a fan myself.”
Moxley concluded his series of tweets with this: “This fucking sucks.”
Moxley will be replaced on the All Out card by PAC, who will face Kenny Omega in a singles match. Here’s the official announcement:
