Jon Moxley unable to appear at Starrcast III


Jon Moxley's elbow injury is preventing him from traveling to Illinois for Starrcast III.

Starrcast's Conrad Thompson tweeted out confirmation overnight that Moxley won't be able to appear at the convention: "We received word today that unfortunately @JonMoxley won’t be able to travel to @StarrcastEvents. Once he got the word from his doctor he told us, 'I’m sorry, this sucks.' I’m sure we all echo those sentiments. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him soon."

Thompson noted that refunds for those who purchased Moxley's meet-and-greet will begin being processed today.

A "Turner Memories" event with Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone reflecting on their experiences with Turner Sports is replacing Moxley's stage show.

It was announced last week that Moxley is unable to wrestle at AEW All Out because a serious case of MRSA has returned in his elbow. Kenny Omega -- who had been set to face Moxley -- is now taking on PAC at Saturday's pay-per-view.

The injury is expected to keep Moxley out of action for four weeks.

Starrcast begins today and will run through Sunday. The convention is taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Schaumburg, Illinois.
