Jon Moxley is unable to wrestle at AEW’s All Out, and his planned opponent Kenny Omega gave his thoughts on the matter in a new video.
This week’s episode of Being the Elite begins with Omega learning Moxley is out of the match, then giving his immediate reaction.
“In the excitement of being a free man, you called it a paradigm shift. Right? That was cool. That could go on a shirt. And then you went to Japan. How did that tournament go in Japan? Did you win? I know that I did. First try. Got the shirt to prove it. You decided to start wanting to check off all those boxes on that bucket list of yours. Did anyone really talk about you in Japan? You got a boo-boo on your elbow,” Kenny exclaimed.
Adding, “Did I go to Japan and wrestle 24 days of the month before fighting you?! No. You see, I did this thing, John, it’s called being a professional.”
In case you missed it, Moxley announced he’ll need to have surgery for “a serious case of MRSA” that returned in his elbow. The operation will require Jon to have his bursa sac removed.
Moxley says it “should” be a quick recovery, but didn’t give a full timetable for when he could return.
“I was ready,” Omega continued in the video. “I took you seriously. I never got myself injured. I got myself in the best shape of my life. You never took me seriously. You never took this pay-per-view seriously. You owe everyone an apology. You owe me an apology. And you should really look in the mirror, Jon.”
Kenny then admits he realizes some people might find his reaction to be insensitive to the situation, but he doubles down on them regardless.
