In a shocking turn of events, Jon Moxley, a celebrated superstar from All Elite Wrestling (AEW), will not appear at Wrestling Revolver's forthcoming event slated for August 3rd in Dayton, Ohio. The former AEW World Champion's absence from this much-anticipated wrestling show serves as a stark reminder that wrestling programs can pivot unexpectedly, often leaving fans grappling with unanticipated changes.
Moxley broke the news of his withdrawal in a video announcement, sharing his disappointment while also revealing his replacement, Konosuke Takeshita. A prominent figure in the wrestling realm, Takeshita is now geared up to square off against Gringo Loco in an exhilarating Lucha Street Fight at the Heat Em Up show.
BCC's Defeat: Moxley-Takeshita Fallout
Fans may recall that Moxley and Takeshita had recently joined forces in the fierce Blood and Guts match, where they were part of the same team, the Blackpool Combat Club (BCC). This intense showdown pitted the BCC against The Elite, their long-standing adversaries.
However, the match took a turn for the worse for the BCC when Don Callis led Takeshita out of the bout, resulting in a defeat for Moxley's team. While Moxley's absence from the upcoming Wrestling Revolver show has left fans in suspense, the question looming large in their minds is: Will Moxley feature in the upcoming AEW All In event? As of now, there has been no official announcement regarding the matches scheduled for All In, which will be held at Wembley Stadium in London.
Yet, the event has garnered significant attention, with ticket sales surpassing 70,000. This strong response indicates that All In could potentially set a record for the highest ticket-selling wrestling show in history. However, Moxley's fans can take solace in knowing that they will see him in action on the 200th episode of Dynamite, where he is set to compete in an 'anything goes' AEW originals three-way match alongside Trent Beretta and Penta El Zero M.
Despite recent developments, Moxley's spirit seems undeterred, promising an action-packed wrestling experience for his devoted followers.
