Jon Moxley debuted at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and became one of the mainstays of the company since then. He is also confident when it comes to AEW getting more fans thanks to its diverse product. It seems his absence might have consequences.
Moxley also isn’t afraid of competing in ultra-violent matches as he made a name for himself in such matches in the past. This includes his matches against GCW legend Nick Gage.
While speaking with PWTorch before last week’s AEW Rampage, Tony Khan talked about Jon Moxley’s absence from AEW television. Khan admitted that AEW might be hurt by longtime ripple effects of Jon Moxley’s absence.
Yes, there was a storyline ripple effect and it definitely affected this past week’s show. And then that was coupled and really enhanced, by Eddie being out sick on Wednesday. Eddie is back tonight now. But the card was definitely thinner. And it definitely hurt the show.
This is going to have a long-term ripple effect. Absolutely. And we’ll see how things go at Full Gear. But Miro taking Jon’s place in the tournament, it definitely changed multiple stories and multiple plans. And you know, thankfully, we just kind of punted the can down the road, and it did affect the card, and I changed up what I was planning for the matches this past Wednesday
Jon Moxley received a lot of support from fans and the entire pro wrestling world. We certainly hope Jon Moxley will be able to conquer his demons and come back a whole new person with a new lease on life.
