Jon Moxley’s body underwent a lot of wear and tear over the years of him competing in various violent matches. It led to him developing substance abuse issues and he entered rehab for alcohol addiction last year.
After almost three months away from the squared circle, Jon Moxley made his return back in January of this year. The Undisputed AEW World Champion has been on a roll in the past few months.
While speaking with Yahoo! Sports, AEW President Tony Khan revealed what he has noticed about Moxley since he became sober. At this point in his career, Jon Moxley is working at an excellent level all around.
“His mind is clearer, his body is healthier, he’s leaner, he’s more fun, he’s having a better time,” Khan said. “Jon’s always been a great professional and great to work with, but honestly he’s been better than ever since he got himself totally clean and sober. A total breath of fresh air since his return. It’s fitting that he had this great run throughout the summer and is the AEW Champion. He’s been one of the driving forces that has helped us beat this injury bug.”
Jon Moxley is set to defend his AEW World Title against CM Punk at AEW All Out on September 4th. We will have to wait and see how the match will turn out to be.
