Jon Moxley Is Injured And Will Be Replaced By PAC At AEW’s All Out

Reigning IWGP United States Champion Jon Moxley has been wrestling all over the world these last few months. Unfortunately though while competing in Japan, he picked up a severe elbow injury. That has now been diagnosed as MRSA.

Moxley’s next high profile match was scheduled to be at All Elite Wrestling’s All Out PPV event, against Kenny Omega on the 31st August. Following the diagnosis though he has had to pull out of the show so he can have surgery to remove the bursa sac.

He would tweet the below to explain to the fans.

This is actually the second time Moxley has had an MRSA staph infection. The first time was during his time in WWE as Dean Ambrose where he complications following tearing his triceps.

We understand he will miss 4/5 weeks from the ring following surgery so should be available to wrestle by the time AEW debuts on TNT.

Cody Rhodes would shortly after take to Twitter to say a replacement would be named soon. AEW would then quickly follow up with news the replacement would be PAC (formally Neville in WWE).

This will be PAC’s AEW debut for All Elite Wrestling.

He was previously scheduled to wrestle Hangman Page at Double or Nothing, but the match instead to place at an indie show in Nottingham, England due to creative difference caused by PAC being the Open The Dream Gate Championship in Dragon Gate. Specifically, Dragon Gate wasn’t happy with their champion losing on another promotions show.

PAC was also supposed to team with Pentagon Jr. and Fenix against Omega and The Young Bucks at the Fyter Fest show but was replaced by Laredo Kid.

Since PAC has now lost his Open The Dream Gate Championship to Ben-K in July at the Kobe Puroresu Festival 2019 it has freed him up creatively for wrestle with AEW.
