Finally, the injury that was thought to be of low severity is not so minor. On Twitter, Jon Moxley revealed that he was forced to give up his match against Kenny Omega at all Out , scheduled to take place next weekend. The ex-WWE superstars has revealed suffering from a Staphylococcus aureus, probably as a result of his participation in the G1 Climax Tournament of the NJPW this summer. As a result, the wrestler will be forced to undergo surgery in the next few weeks.
The main fear is that this infection comes from the same arm as the one already contracted by the time of the WWE end of 2017 and which had put it on the sidelines for some time. It is estimated that this type of operation requires a 3 to 4 week convalescence, which should then be accompanied by protection during physical activity.
To replace him at All Out, however, the AEW did not waste any time and announced that it would finally be PAC who would face Kenny Omega.
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 .— Jon Moxley (@JonMoxley) August 23, 2019
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.— Jon Moxley (@JonMoxley) August 23, 2019
Still, I expect All out to be an amazing ppv and hope all the fans out there looking for an alternative tune in. You will be blown away by AEW and be excited to be a wrestling fan. I'm looking forward to watching as a fan myself— Jon Moxley (@JonMoxley) August 23, 2019
