Instead of Wheeler Yuta, Jon Moxley will be in action on Friday’s AEW Rampage.
Wheeler Yuta, a current star in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and a part of the Blackpool Combat Club faction, has addressed his double-booking Friday night for both AEW Rampage and NJPW. Tomorrow, Uncasville in Connecticut will be hosting Rampage.
Wheeler Yuta had some thoughts about the situation, with AEW posting the video on their official Twitter.
Well, folks it seems that I’ve found myself in a little bit of a pickle. I got a little too excited celebrating my birthday, and my big win on Dynamite. I accidentally double-booked myself for Friday, committing to a match on AEW Rampage as well as one for New Japan Strong.
Now, I did make the New Japan Strong commitment first and in the Blackpool Combat Club we honor our commitments. I will be at New Japan Strong this Friday.
But don’t fret AEW fans, New Japan will be sending one of their best and brightest stars very soon. And there will be a replacement match featuring a Blackpool Combat Club member, he’s the World Champion, Jon Moxley.
After his comments, a graphic then popped up on AEW‘s video, announcing the AEW World Championship Eliminator match on Friday’s Rampage between Jon Moxley and Matt “Daddy Magic” Menard.
