As per the latest backstage report, WWE policy dictates that the company would pay the rehab bills for former superstars even if they are in rival promotion.
Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE had paid the bills for an Impact Wrestling star in the past. He further mentioned that they have not done the same for anyone in AEW as of yet. However, the company’s policy seemingly states that they would pay the bills in such situations.
Meltzer mentioned the details while discussing Jon Moxley, who recently entered into a rehab program. Here’s what he had to say:
“Yes, I think, even in fact, they would [pay for Moxley’s rehab] because that’s the nature of the policy. Because they have definitely paid for people when they’ve been in Impact. They haven’t paid for the rehab of anyone in AEW that I know of, but they have definitely paid for Impact, you know, which is a rival promotion,” said Meltzer.
Moxley has publicly confirmed that he has decided to seek help with his alcohol addiction. Tony Khan shared an update stating that the beloved superstar is doing better every day. Moxley has received a lot of support from fans worldwide, and we wish him a speedy recovery.
