Jon Moxley Entering Alcohol Treatment Program, Taking Time Off From Wrestling

Tony Khan tweeted tonight that Jon Moxley will be taking time away from the ring and will be entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program.

Khan’s statement:

Jon Moxley has allowed me to share with you that he is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program. Jon is a beloved member of the AEW family. We all stand with him and Renee, and all of his family and friends, as he shifts his focus to recovery.

Jon is making a very brave choice to get help, and we’re embracing his choice and supporting him however we can.

I’m proud to call Jon a friend, and like many of you, I’m also a fan of Mox and look forward to a time in the future when he is eventually ready to return to the ring. Until then, thank you for supporting Jon and respecting his privacy at this time.

If you or a loved one need help, please reach out to SAMHSA’s National Helpline: 1-800-662-HELP (4357).

Moxley was scheduled to wrestle Orange Cassidy in the semifinals of the World Title Eliminator tournament tomorrow night on Dynamite, with the winner going on to face Bryan Danielson at Full Gear. AEW hasn’t said yet how they will handle tomorrow’s scheduled match.
