Jon Moxley announced that he will not be able to face Kenny Omega at AEW All Out due to a serious case of MRSA (staph infection) in his elbow.

AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes confirmed that the company will find a replacement to face Omega at the event.

"Very heartbreaking news. Jon's health and safety is paramount to all of us," Rhodes tweeted. "We will actively try and reschedule this match down the road. A replacement match for All Out will be announced soon. Our thoughts are with Jon."
