During AEW’s Grand Slam event at Arthur Ashe Stadium, wrestling fans were left holding their breath, particularly regarding the condition of Jon Moxley after a concerning incident in the ring. However, there’s a reassuring update on the well-being of the former Dean Ambrose.
In an unexpected turn of events, Jon Moxley lost the AEW International Title to Rey Fenix during the Arthur Ashe Stadium showdown. What became a source of worry for fans was a moment during the match when Moxley appeared to suffer an injury following a Black Fire Driver move.
In this high-impact maneuver, Moxley’s head seemed to be driven forcefully into the mat. Even though it wasn’t intended to be the match’s conclusion, Moxley signaled for the referee, Rick Knox, to initiate the pin count. Knox hesitated to complete the three-count, given that Moxley hadn’t kicked out. However, a second Black Fire Driver by Fenix led to Knox counting the pin.
