Tony Khan Provides Update On Jon Moxley & Admits There Will Be A 'Long-Term Ripple Effect' On AEW Storylines
Miro faced Orange Cassidy in the World Title Eliminator Tournament
Tony Khan has provided a brief update on Jon Moxley's well-being and admitted that the sudden changes to AEW television last week will have a 'long-term ripple effect' on a multiple of angles and storylines.
As previously noted, Khan announced last Tuesday that Moxley had entered himself into an inpatient alcohol treatment program, leading to a change on Wednesday's Dynamite as Miro took his place in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament.
Speaking with Wade Keller for PWTorch, Khan said: "It has been a pretty challenging week. And Jon is a really good friend of mine. So for many reasons. It’s been hard. But I’ve talked Renee pretty much every day and it seems like Jon’s doing better, which is great news for everybody.
"It’s great news for the fans, and especially for Jon and Renee, and for his friends of which I am one."
With Miro taking Moxley's place in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, Khan has admitted the late changes to the creative will have a ripple effect on other storylines throughout the promotion as time progresses.
"Yes, there was a storyline ripple effect and it definitely affected this past week's show. And then that was coupled and really enhanced, and it by Eddie being out sick on Wednesday.
"This is going to have a long-term ripple effect. Absolutely. And we’ll see how things go at Full Gear. But Miro taking Jon’s place in the tournament, it definitely changed multiple stories and multiple plans.
"And you know, thankfully, we just kind of punted the can down the road, and it did affect the card, and I changed up what I was planning for the matches this past Wednesday, but the face to face confrontation, at least between Punk and Kingston, we are able to have it now (Friday)."
