The Race to 20
The AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy has won 9 of his last 10 bouts. Out of those 10, 6 have been successful title defenses. To say that Cassidy has been quite the roll would be an understatement. However, this week he’ll be going up against a competitor unlike any other in the form of Daniel Garcia. The JAS’ “Dragon Slayer has the opportunity of a lifetime to win his first taste of championship gold in AEW.
And after last week’s 8-Man Tag Team Match, Garcia will undoubtedly be out for revenge against Orange Cassidy. That said, it will not be an easy feat for the young technician. Orange Cassidy has proven time and time again that he’s a fighting champion, and it’s no secret that when the going gets tough, Cassidy comes through.
Will Daniel Garcia dethrone the dominant AEW International Champion? Or will Orange Cassidy notch his 20th successful title defense?
A New Epic Chapter
— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) May 7, 2023
This Wednesday night, one of AEW’s best and most violent rivalries will be rekindled as Kenny Omega meets Jon Moxley in a Steel Cage Match. This war between the Blackpool Combat Club and The Elite has been getting more and more barbaric as the weeks go by. Both groups have laid waste to one another every chance they get, as the two factions look to assert their dominance as AEW’s top unit.
The BCC is hellbent on cleansing the wrestling industry of so-called “amateurs” as they look to mold the future generation in their image. As we all saw in weeks past, they have resorted to vicious assaults to get their point across, with The Elite being their first prime target. Of course, Omega and The Young Bucks will not stand for this, and it’s only a matter of time until these two factions go to battle.
But, for now. The two top dogs of each group will go at it. Omega and Moxley have had some savage battles over the past few years. However, as Moxley stated, things are different now, and these two are looking to draw first blood in this heated feud. It’s Omega versus Moxley inside an unforgiving cage; who will come out victorious in the initial duel between the BCC and The Elite? Find out this Wednesday night on TBS!
