I think we all love Orange Cassidy and can agree he is one of the best wrestlers in the world today, but can we admit that his title run has gone a bit past its prime? The guy is incredible, he's a workhorse and he deserves all the props in the world…but we've gotten to a point where he's now defending his title against Wheeler Yuta in order to set up a match against Jon Moxley who in NO way needs to win the International Championship. Really feels like either Jay White or Swerve Strickland could have used the rub of bumping off a worn down OC and then Orange could be dusting up for a shot at the world title.
TLDR: Orange Cassidy rules but his title run has hit a point of diminishing returns and he should have lost the belt by now.
Swerve should have been that dude. I would have been upset in the moment but there’s more places for Swerve to go with it. Orange was building and building and building to something big and then just never got there. They’ve got nothing left to prove with Orange and it’s time to move on with the title.
