Jon Moxley’s Concussion on AEW Dynamite Caused Change in Plans; Backstage Heat on Referee Rick Knox

  • Last week on AEW Dynamite, during the International Title match, an injury befell the reigning champion, Jon Moxley, leading to a significant change in the planned outcome. Ultimately, Moxley’s opponent, Rey Fenix, emerged victorious and captured the title as Moxley was unable to continue.
  • Post-show reports revealed that Jon Moxley had sustained a concussion, contrary to initial beliefs that it occurred during a Black Fire Driver executed by Fenix. Further investigations clarified that Moxley had actually suffered the concussion prior to the match, during the pre-match brawl. Fortunately, the concussion was not severe, and Moxley managed to exit the arena under his own power. He later reassured people that he would recover.
  • The alteration in the match’s conclusion, resulting in the title changing hands, triggered a ripple effect with significant implications for the post-match proceedings and the upcoming WrestleDream PPV. As reported by, the original plans had called for Moxley to win the match and retain his title, with a non-AEW wrestler set to make an appearance and challenge him for the championship at WrestleDream. Although the identity of this wrestler remains undisclosed, the change in outcome due to Fenix’s victory led to the abandonment of this challenge.
  • The report further states that there is backstage discontent directed towards the match’s referee, Rick Knox, from numerous individuals within AEW. This dissatisfaction likely stems from Knox’s involvement in previous matches where wrestlers sustained injuries and were not adequately protected.
