Despite concerns that he suffered an injury during the main event of the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event, Jon Moxley is fine and doesn’t have one, according to Dave Meltzer at the latest “Wrestling Observer Radio,

After the event ended on Sunday, the new interim AEW World Champion took to the microphone to address the live crowd inside the United Center, claiming he was “probably distracted” about his position going forward. I was worried about something.

But it’s reportedly just a line he decided to use in that moment, which Moxley himself admitted he probably wouldn’t use again, because he believed that if he didn’t get hurt, it wouldn’t. It’s best to say because people can react to that.

Moxley’s quote caused some concern among the public, especially since he was bleeding heavily during the match against Hiroshi Tanahashi, but he is fine and that means he should be seen on “AEW Dynamite” this Wednesday in Blood and Guts. Must be fit to compete. He will team up with Eddie Kingston, Santana and Ortiz, Wheeler Utah and Claudio Castagnoli, who is replacing Brian Danielson, as they compete against the Jericho Appreciation Society inside a steel structure.

As Jericho won the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door in a six-man tag team match with Sammy Guevara and Minoru Suzuki on Sunday, his team would have the advantage of the lead in Blood & Guts. Moxley was reportedly due to be in the same match Jericho originally competed in before CM Punk suffered a leg injury.

The AEW World Champion had to withdraw from his planned match against Tanahashi, which led to Tony Khan making a main event for the interim title, with Moxley defeating Kyle O’Reilly to earn a part of it.
