Jon Moxley has been pulled from an independent wrestling promotion.

Jon Moxley was scheduled to appear at Scrappermania in Ireland for Over The Top on March 17. Now the former AEW World Heavyweight Champion is no longer appearing.

AEW is starting up their house shows, and they need him. Jon Moxley is the top star advertised for AEW’s House Rules live event on March 18th in Troy, Ohio. Of course, Ohio is Moxley’s home state, so he will be a major draw for the show. Jon Moxley vs. Trent Seven was set to go down at the OTT event. In Moxley’s place AEW is sending Eddie Kingston and an unnamed talent to the show. That might be a good replacement, but now fans in Ohio won’t get to see Eddie Kingston.

We’ll have to see who AEW sends along with Eddie Kingston to make up for pulling Jon Moxley. It makes perfect sense that AEW pulled Moxley for their Ohio house show. Hopefully, Jon Moxley will make it back to Ireland, so he can make up for this situation.
