Jon Moxley will be taking time off from wrestling for an Inpatient Alcohol Treatment Program.
AEW Owner/Present Tony Khan took to twitter tonight to post a message with the permission of Jon Moxley to announce that he will be entering into an inpatient alcohol treatment program, and will be shifting focus towards his recovery.
“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).”
It wasn’t stated what will happen as far as Moxley’s standing in the ongoing AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament.
We will keep you updated when we hear more.
The entire Bodyslam staff would like to extend their well wishes, thoughts, and prayers to Jon Moxley, Renee and their entire family throughout this difficult time.
