Did Swerve Strickland Beat Orange Cassidy For The AEW International Championship

Did Swerve Strickland Beat Orange Cassidy For The AEW International Championship AEW

On tonight’s AEW Dynamite (June 7) the show kicked off with the potential for a major title change after two bright stars faced off.

Orange Cassidy put his AEW International Championship on the line in the night’s opening bout as Swerve Strickland challenged the champ to a title match.

With both men showing off impressive offense throughout, commentary sold the amount of pain the champ was in as he attempted to seal the deal but he could not.

With Orange Cassidy holding his back, he also sold an injury to his right hand, the combination of which made all pinning efforts difficult.

However when Prince Nana got on the apron for a distraction, instead Orange moved and Swerve knocked down Nana, hitting the Orange Punch and a Beach Break but Swerve still kicked out.

Orange attempted to hit a Tope Suicida, but instead was caught by Swerve who delivered a Brain Buster on the outside.

Back in the ring, Swerve went to the top rope for a huge double foot stomp but Orange was still miraculously able to kick out.

In the end, Orange Cassidy was able to get the pinfall victory over Swerve Strickland but with notable “rising desperation” of the champ, using Swerve’s tights to secure the pin.

After the match, the Mogul Embassy ran out and were waging a beat down on Orange Cassidy when the lights went out.

After a period of silence in the dark, a big reveal was made as it was Sting and Darby Allin who had run out to make the save and stand tall with Orange in the end.
