Moxley has been away from pro wrestling since early November after entering himself into treatment for alcohol use. He has not wrestled since defeating Jimmy Jacobs in a Street Fight at TWR’s Tales from The Ring 4 event on October 30, and has not been on TV or pay-per-view since the October 27 edition of AEW Dynamite, where he defeated 10 of The Dark Order in a match for the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament.
GCW announced this week that Moxley will return to the ring this Sunday, January 23 at their The Wrld On GCW pay-per-view from Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. He will be defending the GCW World Title against Homicide.
