Jon Moxley made his debut 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 due to its diverse product. It seems Moxley got blasted recently as well.
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 into rehab for alcohol addiction.
After almost three months away from the squared circle, the former AEW World Champion made his return during last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. Moxley cut a passionate promo where he talked about conquering his demons and encouraged fans to do the same.
While speaking on his podcast, Steam Room, NBA legend Charles Barkley gave a huge shoutout to Jon Moxley for recovering from his alcohol addiction.
”Hey, this is serious right here. I know y’all don’t know this guy, his name is Jon Moxley. You guys know I’m a big wrestling fan. Jon Moxley is a star on our network actually [TNT]… he’s one of the biggest stars — yes, AEW. He left three months ago for alcohol treatment.
You know I had a younger brother who passed away so I know a lot about addiction and he [Moxley] just came back this week and I just want him to know — we never met. I just wanna say man, I’m really proud of him. I wish him nothing but the best. I’ve been through it with my family and man, it’s a tough situation but I just want him to know, I’m really proud of him and just keep battling. That’s all you can do. That’s all you can do.”
Moxley will certainly appreciate Charles Barkley’s shoutout. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Jon Moxley, now that he is back and better than ever.
