Jon Moxley Reveals What Doctor Told Him Regarding Arthritis

Jon Moxley

Jon Moxley has opened up about his physical health while revealing what his doctor said about having arthritis of a 70-year-old man.

At the AEW All Out pay-per-view in Chicago earlier this month, Jon Moxley became the AEW International Champion by defeating Orange Cassidy, who had held the championship for about ten months.

By winning the AEW International Title for the first time, Moxley added to his title history in AEW since he is also the only three-time World Champion in company history.

Moxley is 37 years old with nearly 20 years of experience in pro wrestling. He is known for being one of the best wrestlers in the world who also likes to bleed a lot during matches, just like he did this past Wednesday on Dynamite when he beat Big Bill.

In a recent interview with Bleav/ESPN 1530’s Rick Ucchino, Jon Moxley revealed that a doctor told him that he has the arthritis of a man in his 70s.

“The doctor last year told me that I have the Arthritis of a 70-year-old man. And that was quite humbling. That was a year or two ago. So by now, it is like a 72-year-old man. I don’t move very well in the mornings. But once I get like, dude thank God shows are at night because by then I’m pretty loosened up.”

“If wrestling shows took place in the morning like Saturday Morning Superstars, if we started doing those early territory-style Studio TV Tapings on Sunday mornings I’d be… I would retire. I’d be done. Because a lot of times I can’t even move before noon.”

The next episode of AEW Dynamite is the Grand Slam show from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York. Since Moxley is known as a fighting champion, he’ll put the International Championship on the line against Rey Fenix.

There was a backstage segment on this week’s Dynamite where Fenix got in Moxley’s face saying he was going to take the International Title while Moxley remained confident that he would retain his newly won title.
