Robert Anthony: Jon Moxley was set for six-week vacation until AEW All Out melee

Moxley's plans changed after CM Punk, Kenny Omega, and the Young Bucks were suspended.

Jon Moxley was supposed to go on a six-week vacation after AEW All Out. 

Robert Anthony appeared on an episode of The Tyrus and Timpf podcast recently and spoke about a fishing trip he and Moxley planned to take following the pay-per-view. 

"[Moxley's] doing good. Man, he was supposed to be on vacation, six weeks, we were going to go fishing. Now he’s back to work, he’s not too happy about it," Anthony said. 

"He’s pissed off and he’s back at work and he cut a hell of a promo on Wednesday. We’ll see where it goes, you know what I mean? It’s just a lot of negatives in the positives over there."

Moxley and Chris Jericho were not originally scheduled for last week's Dynamite. Following the suspensions of CM Punk, Kenny Omega, and the Young Bucks, both were added to the show. Our own Dave Meltzer addressed the original plans for Moxley in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.  

"Moxley had an angle planned that he sort of acknowledged on the air where he would be going on vacation to lead to a return with emphasis, but that’s out the window, as it appears he, Jericho, MJF, and Danielson will be the key stars carrying the company for now," Meltzer wrote.
