The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
Moxley Out, PAC In, at All Out
Due to injury, Jon Moxley will not be at AEW All Out on August 31st. He was scheduled to face Kenny Omega in singles action. Moxley took to Twitter on the weekend to explain that he is out with an elbow injury and has to undergo surgery. He is expected to be back in time for AEW’s debut on TNT in October.
I'm absolutely gutted to have to deliver this news but I'd rather it come directly from me. In a nightmare scenario, a serious case of MRSA has returned in my elbow. The timing couldn't be worse. In this circumstance I am forced to pull out of the fight 8/31 vs Omega at All Out .

AEW was quick to announce Moxley’s replacement for All Out, and it’s a good one. PAC, formerly known as Neville in WWE, will face Omega on August 31st. PAC had been scheduled for AEW’s first show, Double or Nothing, but had to pull out. On that event he was scheduled to face Adam Page. Now, PAC will make his AEW debut against one of the company’s Executive Vice-Presidents in Omega.

Shamrock has been beefing with Moose over social media, leading to Shamrock’s return. Back in 2002, Shamrock was the first champion for NWA-TNA, and now he is making his return. It is unknown if the return for Shamrock is a long-term decision or a one-off. At 55 years old, a short return would seem likely. Get caught up on their feud here:
