This sucks:

I'm absolutely gutted to have to deliver this news but I'd rather it come directly from me. In a nightmare scenario, a serious case of MRSA has returned in my elbow. The timing couldn't be worse. In this circumstance I am forced to pull out of the fight 8/31 vs Omega at All Out .

Word was going around that he was dealing with an elbow injury and, as he put it, this is pretty much a nightmare scenario, both for Moxley personally and AEW business wise. He had been scheduled to wrestle Kenny Omega at the upcoming All out pay-per-view (PPV) that is now just eight days away.

As for what it means for the match-up, and what AEW will do about it, Cody took to Twitter to keep fans informed on that front:

Very heartbreaking news. Jon’s health and safety is paramount to all of us. We will actively try and reschedule this match down the road. A replacement match for All Out will be announced soon. Our thoughts are with Jon. https://t.co/EHoNpNrHwP

Moxley missed significant time after a triceps injury a couple years ago, and the surgery to correct it led to his contracting MRSA and, according to his own account, nearly dying from it.

He promises to be back soon, though:

I apologize to all involved, most importantly the fans. I am incredibly frustrated and pissed off. I'll have surgery this week to remove the bursa sac in my elbow and be done with it for good. Should be a quick recovery so I will be 100% for AEW Wednesday nights on TNT.

Let’s hope things go much smoother and he recovers well this time around.
