Charles Barkley is proud of Jon Moxley.
In November it was announced that Jon Moxley had checked into an inpatient alcohol treatment program. Moxley was a regular on AEW television and competing in the AEW World Title eliminator tournament at the time he entered the program.
Moxley returned on the January 19 episode of AEW Dynamite and stepped back in the ring on the subsequent episode of AEW Dynamite.
During the latest episode of his Steam Room podcast, the Hall of Fame NBA player shared his admiration and support for Moxley and wished him nothing but the best.
"Hey, this is serious right here. I know you all don't know this guy, his name is Jon Moxley. You guys know I'm a big wrestling fan. Shoutout to The Rock. Hey, Rock, we're always going to be close. I do all the stunt work. You all don't know this, but when you see his body, that's me. So, I watch a lot of wrestling. Jon Moxley is a star on our network actually. This is not a homer pick. He wrestles for -- shoutout Chris Jericho. So Jon Moxley, he's one of the biggest stars for 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 just came back this week and I just want him to know, we never met, I just want to 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 that I'm really proud of him and just keep battling. It's all you can do. So, shoutout to those guys," Barkley said.
