Jon Moxley out of AEW All Out, replacement announced

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Jon Moxley announced that he will miss the August 31 AEW All Out pay-per-view with an elbow issue. AEW later announced that Pac (f/k/a Neville) will replace Moxley in his scheduled match against Kenny Omega. “In a nightmare scenario, a serious case of MRSA has returned in my elbow,” Moxley wrote on his Twitter page. “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. 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.”

Powell’s POV: It’s an unfortunate situation, but AEW was quick to announce Pac as a strong replacement. Pac was originally scheduled to face Hangman Page at the AEW Double Or Nothing event, but he was pulled from the show in due to what was suspected to be a work visa issue, though the company officially stated that is was due to creative differences.

  1. “he was pulled from the show in due to what was suspected to be was due to a work visa issue” baby shark due due due

  2. This is the first I heard of Pac pulling out due to Work Visa. Just out of curiosity, why would the company claim creative issues which potentially makes Pac and the company look bad rather than just tell the truth?

    • Totally hypothetical, but what if there were other wrestlers who worked on travel visas and they didn’t want to draw attention to it? On a side note, members of the OWE crew were unable to work the show due to visa issues and said as much. The creative differences explanation was odd. I can understand the idea of Pac not wanting to lose while holding a DG title, but why couldn’t they have done something similar in the US to what they did overseas? For that matter, why wouldn’t they bring him in for personal appearances. Again, though, nothing definitive on this.
