Speaking to Renee Paquette on The Sessions, Moxley commented on taking indie bookings and missing OTT.

"I don't know how many (Indies) I'll do this year. What I don't like is, I have to be really cognizant of not pushing myself too hard. I'm a very foot-to-the-gas pedal person, and I don't know any different. If I'm feeling really great, I'll be like, 'I'll book myself for six Saturdays in a row and wrestle 20 minutes on Dynamite every week.' Then you get halfway through that and you're like, 'Oh man, I'm pretty beat up. Maybe I should take a week off,' but then it's too late because if I do an Indie show, tickets are sold and the whole thing is built around me and they're streaming it. I can't just call off. I have to go. Then, I have commitments to AEW. The thing with OTT the other week, I was fucking furious about, just because...totally happy to do a house show. You're telling me I'm doing a show and I only have to drive 90 miles, great, what better way to spend a Saturday night. I was already booked on that day. It's just this weight, the days that I missed when I was in rehab, I missed a DEFY show, a bunch of AEW shows, and a pay-per-view. Having that weight on my back of a date that I feel I have to make up, I feel so bad about it. I hate having that weight. Now, I still have to go to OTT. I probably shouldn't advertise it because I don't want to jinx it. I'm just going to show up. I will make that day up. Sorry about that unfortunate circumstance, fans in Ireland," said Moxley.

It is unknown when Moxley will appear for OTT Wrestling.
