Jon Moxley Entering Inpatient Alcohol Treatment Program

AEW President Tony Khan has announced that former world champion Jon Moxley is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program.

Khan shared the news in a string of tweets on November 2; the text is as follows:

“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).”

Jon Moxley released his autobiography, “MOX” earlier in the day on November 2.

Prior to this announcement, Moxley had been scheduled to face Orange Cassidy in the semi-finals of the World Title Eliminator tournament on the November 3 episode of AEW Dynamite. AEW has not announced its plans for the tournament as of this writing.

Outside of AEW, Moxley currently holds the GCW World Championship; he won the title at the promotion’s “Art of War Games” event on September 4.

It’s currently unclear how long Jon Moxley will be in the program, but WrestleZone will provide more details as they become available.

The WrestleZone team wishes Jon Moxley well in this difficult time.
