In a public announcement made late Tuesday night, AEW president Tony Khan has stated that Jon Moxley is entering an alcohol treatment program.
Khan issued the following statement regarding Moxley and the company’s support of their performer as he seeks help:
Jon Moxley has allowed me to share with you that he is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program. Jon is a beloved member of the AEW family. We all stand with him and Renee, and all of his family and friends, as he shifts his focus to recovery.
Jon is making a very brave choice to get help, and we’re embracing his choice and supporting him however we can.
I’m proud to call Jon a friend, and like many of you, I’m also a fan of Mox and look forward to a time in the future when he is eventually ready to return to the ring. Until then, thank you for supporting Jon and respecting his privacy at this time.
If you or a loved one need help, please reach out to SAMHSA’s National Helpline: 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
Moxley had previously been scheduled for the AEW Dynamite tapings on Wednesday night in Independence, Missouri for a match with Orange Cassidy in the Title Eliminator Tournament.
We want to extend our thoughts to Moxley and his family as he undergoes treatment.
