Tony Khan has revealed that former AEW Champion Jon Moxley has entered an inpatient alcohol treatment program.
Jon Moxley has entered an alcohol treatment program.
AEW president Tony Khan took to Twitter to announce that his company’s former Champion is undergoing treatment for alcohol addiction and will be taking a hiatus from wrestling.
“Jon Moxley has allowed me to share with you that he is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program,” Khan tweeted on the evening of Tuesday, November 2. “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,” he added.
Khan said that he’s proud to call Moxley his friend and that AEW is fully embracing Mox’s decision to seek help during this difficult time.
“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,” tweeted Khan.
Mox’s recovery will take as long as it takes, so of course, we cannot begin to speculate on how long he will be away from the ring. That being said, Mox is currently a participant in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, so it seems TK will have some tough booking decisions to make in the coming days, and he’s not the only one. Moxley is also the current GCW Champion and has been making sporadic appearances for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Wrestlers have been sharing their support for Jon Moxley after it was revealed he has entered into an alcohol treatment program.
While Khan was the first to publicly share his support for Moxley as he was trusted to share the news, he was far from the last. Tweets wishing Moxley well on his journey and showing support for the decision he has made have been flooding in. Doc Gallows, Britt Baker, and Jade Cargill are just a few of the stars who have posted their support in the replies to Khan’s thread.
