The Best Bout Machine and Death Rider’s proposed All Out match was called off on August 23 after the former WWE Champion revealed that had a staph infection in his arm: “I’m absolutely gutted to have to deliver this news but I’d rather it come directly from me. In a nightmare scenario, a serious case of MRSA has returned in my elbow. The timing couldn’t be worse. In this circumstance I am forced to pull out of the fight 8/31 vs Omega at All Out,” Moxley tweeted.
PAC ended up replacing Jon, with the Geordie making Omega pass out to win the match. Following All Out, PAC was seen goading Adam “Hangman” Page during the cowboy’s post-show press conference, hinting at a feud kicking off between the pair.
