Jon Moxley is out of Starrcast III.
Event promoter Conrad Thompson dropped the unfortunate news in the early hours of Thursday morning, after a week of questions about whether or not Moxley would be able to travel to Chicago for the convention. After giving it as much time as possible, Moxley wasn't given the go ahead and was pulled.
We received word today that unfortunately @JonMoxley won’t be able to travel to @StarrcastEvents. Once he got the word from his doctor he told us, “I’m sorry, this sucks.” I’m sure we all echo those sentiments. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him soon.— Conrad the Mortgage Guy (@HeyHeyItsConrad) August 29, 2019
Everyone who purchased his meet and greet has been notified via email. Refunds will begin being processed tomorrow. His stage show has been cancelled and a new schedule will be released tomorrow.— Conrad the Mortgage Guy (@HeyHeyItsConrad) August 29, 2019
Moxley was also pulled from AEW's All Out as a result of MRSA, and subsequently was replaced by PAC against Kenny Omega. He hopes to be healed up in time for AEW's run on TNT.
Starrcast would later announced that "Turner Memories" with Tony Schiavone and Jim Ross would replace the Jon Moxley stage show. Starrcast will release a new finalized schedule shortly.
