Jon Moxley is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program.
Tony Khan shared the news this evening on Twitter, saying that he is looking forward to a time when Moxley will return to the ring.
Khan’s statement reads:
Jon Moxley has allowed me to share with you that he is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program. Jon is a beloved member of the AEW family. We all stand with him and Renee, and all of his family and friends, as he shifts his focus to recovery. Jon is making a very brave choice to get help, and we’re embracing his choice and supporting him however we can. I’m proud to call Jon a friend, and like many of you, I’m also a fan of Mox and look forward to a time in the future when he is eventually ready to return to the ring. Until then, thank you for supporting Jon and respecting his privacy at this time. If you or a loved one need help, please reach out to SAMHSA’s National Helpline: 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
Moxley was scheduled to compete on Dynamite this Wednesday in a match against Orange Cassidy. The winner would advance to AEW’s Full Gear pay-per-view event on November 13, where they would face Bryan Danielson in the finals of the World Title Eliminator tournament. AEW has not announced their plans for the tournament.
