Jon Moxley had to be pulled from his match against Kenny Omega at the Aug. 31 All Out pay-per-view due to an infection in his elbow, but it won't be long until we get to see him again.
AEW announced on Sunday that Moxley will be appearing at the TNT premiere show in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 2.
Moxley's match against Omega has been rescheduled for the Nov. 9 Full Gear pay-per-view. Perhaps Oct. 2 will be used as a way of building up the match between these two main event superstars.
Oct. 2 promises to be a special day in AEW history, as it marks the company's first episode on their weekly Wednesday television program under TNT. They obviously want to stack up the card for this show, and even if Moxley isn't competing, his presence will still make the event that much greater.
In his last AEW match, Moxley defeated Joey Janela at the Fyter Fest pay-per-view on June 29. He then went to New Japan Pro Wrestling and took place in the G1 Climax 29 tournament. It was reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Moxley's elbow injury may have been sustained while he was competing in Japan.
Moxley was replaced by Pac for the match against Omega at All Out, and the latter was upset via a referee stoppage. Now, we sit back and anxiously await the Moxley-Omega dream match that's been building up for several months.
What Can We Expect From Moxley?
Moxley has only made a handful of appearances in AEW, and we haven't seen the best of him yet. His debut at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view was nothing short of excellent, and it set the stone for his feud with Omega.
It'd be a surprise if AEW didn't use their Oct. 2 show to build up the Omega-Moxley match in a couple of months. This is their prime opportunity to make it happen, so let's see how it plays out.
