Jon Moxley Forced to Pull Out of AEW All Out Due to Injury, Replaced by PAC

Jon Moxley announced that he has a “serious case of MRSA” in his elbow and is forced to pull out of his match against Kenny Omega at All Out next Saturday.

MRSA is bacteria that causes difficult to treat, potentially life-threatening infections. Last year, Moxley said that he “nearly died” from a serious staph infection caused by MRSA after undergoing surgery for a torn triceps in late 2017. “I had this MRSA, Staph infection. I nearly died. I was in the hospital for a week plugged up to this antibiotic drip thing, and I was on all these antibiotics for months.”

Moxley said in the tweets above that he’s undergoing surgery this week and it “should be a quick recovery so I will be 100% for AEW Wednesday nights on TNT.”

PAC Replaces Moxley

AEW quickly announced that Kenny Omega will now face PAC instead of Moxley. This will be PAC’s first official match in AEW. It’s not clear if he has signed a deal yet or if it’s a one time thing for now, but the expectation has always been that he will eventually join AEW.
