Jon Moxley Announces Serious Case Of MRSA In His Elbow, No Longer Working AEW All Out


AEW and NJPW star Jon Moxley released a statement on Twitter announcing that he is no longer working the August 31st ALL OUT pay per view, where he was set to face Kenny Omega. Moxley revealed that his reported elbow injury has developed into a serious case of an MRSA bacteria, and will force him to miss the highly anticipated event, which he says has absolutely “gutted him.”

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 would also add that he’s having surgery to remove the infection once and for all, and he should be good for AEW’s debut on television.

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. Should be a quick recovery so I will be 100% for AEW Wednesday nights on TNT.

You can see both of Moxley’s statements below.
