After a whirlwind event at Wembley Stadium for AEW All In London, wrestling fans were left in awe. The stadium roared during the 5-on-5 Stadium Stampede tag team match. The victorious team was none other than the Best Friends - consisting of Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor, Trent Beretta, Penta El Zero Miedo, and Eddie Kingston.
They triumphed over the Blackpool Combat Club featuring Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, Wheeler Yuta, Santana, and Ortiz. The finale was especially sensational when Orange Cassidy delivered an Orange Punch on Claudio with shards of broken glass adorning his hand.
During the post-match press conference, an exhausted yet triumphant Orange Cassidy reflected on the match and his opponents, especially highlighting Castagnoli's wrestling prowess. "Claudio Castagnoli is easily one of the all-time greats.
That match? Probably one of my career's brightest moments," he remarked, capturing the gravity of the event. Cassidy also voiced his dissatisfaction over not being able to defend the International Title. AEW's Tony Khan, wearing his many hats as the CEO, GM, and Head of Creative, dropped a bombshell.
He announced that Orange Cassidy would defend his title not once but twice. The first defense is slated for AEW Dynamite, where Cassidy will square off against Stadium Stampede teammate Penta El Zero Miedo. The victor from this bout will face the formidable Jon Moxley at the All Out PPV on September 3rd.
Jon Moxley Legendary AEW Reign
Jon Moxley's reputation in AEW is nothing short of legendary. Ever since his explosive debut in May 2019, he has cemented his legacy as the promotion's most accomplished World Champion. The distinction of being a three-time AEW World Champion is exclusively Moxley's.
His crowning as the AEW World Champion came after an electrifying win against Chris Jericho at the Revolution 2020 PPV. His 277-day title reign ranks third in AEW history, only recently surpassed by MJF. 2022 also witnessed Moxley clutching the AEW World Title twice more.
Should Moxley overcome Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Title, it would mark his maiden title victory in AEW outside of the World Title sphere. Fans eagerly await what promises to be a match for the ages.
