Jon Moxley Is Still Not Cleared To Compete Due To Concussion

At AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, Jon Moxley lost the AEW International Championship with Rey Fenix. It was a surprising defeat that does not appear to have been planned. Following a dive from Fenix onto Moxley from the entrance ramp early on, Moxley looked a little out of it. Moxley’s condition worsened following a piledriver variation from Fenix, resulting in him not kicking out for the three count. Rather than counting to three and ending the match, referee Rick Knox ended his cadence, resulting in Moxley taking another piledriver. The decision not to end the match when Moxley did not kick out has been highly scrutinized and reportedly led to Knox receiving significant heat in the back.

Unfortunately, it appears that Moxley suffered a concussion due to the scary ordeal. However, it looks like the death match brawler is safely on the road to recovery and even provided his unique brand of commentary to the Blackpool Combat Club matches at AEW WrestleDream. Unfortunately, despite things looking up, he had bad news for Pro Wrestling Revolver fans last night when he was set to main event the show against Gringo Loco.

“I guess I’ll get the bad news out of the way first,” Moxley told the crowd. “The doctors won’t let me wrestle tonight. But the good news is that I found a hell of a replacement.”

Moxley went on to reveal that his replacement in the main event was Rich Swann, who lost to Loco. Following the match, Loco grabbed a microphone and accused Moxley of ducking him for the fight. Loco may be biting off more than he can chew as Moxley told those in attendance that when he is finally able to compete in Dayton, OH, he plans on going “f-cking ballistic.”
