We get a press conference for the TNT Championship match between Cody Rhodes and Jake Hager, wherein Jake’s crew is absent and Arn Anderson gives him a dadly talking to at length, essentially calling him a coward and telling him Cody’s gonna retain. Rhodes talks about being champion, how it feels like hope, and how he stands for real, classic style pro wrestling.
Hager comes to the conference at last, accompanied by his wife. He asks Cody if he’s ready, and he’s ready. This sets up the photo op with the belt, they pose, Jake puts his fist in Rhodes’ face and he swats it away. He walks away, his wife throws water in Cody’s face, and we’re done here.

Orange Cassidy makes his entrance and we see a recap of his attack on Chris Jericho from last week.
Jericho follows soon after, and gets on the mic. He repeatedly asks why the chicken crossed the road, and answers his own question with “to get to the other side.” He says it’s a joke everybody knows, and the first time you hear it it’s kinda funny and a little stupid, but the more you hear it, the worse it gets, and that’s Orange Cassidy.
The more he sees him and his act, the more annoying he becomes, and he pisses Jericho off. When he first heard his name, he thought it was stupid, when he first saw his matches, he thought he was an embarrassment to the business, and when he signed with AEW, he called Tony Khan and asked why he’d bring Cassidy in.
He said the same thing everybody else says— everybody loves him. Y2J watched more of his stuff and he kinda got it, he does his own thing, he’s different, and Jericho applauds him for that. He got over on his own, for being himself! Part of his appeal is he’s like us— a lazy slacker. If he tries any of his bullshit offense at Fyter Fest, Chris is gonna kick his teeth down his throat.
He better reach deep down in his pockets and pull out a man-sized miracle if he wants to beat Le Champion, but that’s not happening. At Fyter Fest, the Orange Cassidy phenomenon is over, because Jericho’s gonna make sure he runs out of juice.
Orange takes the mic, considers saying something, and just sets it down before kicking Y2J in the shings with his “bullshit offense”! Hands up… HANDS IN POCKETS! Jericho takes his glasses off and crushes them!
(Insert Johnny Cage “Those were $500 sunglasses asshole!” clip here)
ORANGE WITH THE DOUBLE LEG INTO GROUNDED PUNCHES! WE GOT A BRAWL! JERICHO BAILS TO THE FLOOR BUT CASSIDY STAYS ON HIM!
They fight past the barricades, into the crowd area, Cassidy smashes Jericho’s face into an inner barricade and they fight up the stands! Chris smashes Orange into some chairs, dragging him deeper up the stands, Cassidy fights back and knocks him into a row of seats! Trading blows, deeper into the stands… Y2J SWINGS A CAMERA BOOM INTO CASSIDY!
Drawing him up, climbing up a road case, pulling Orange up with him but he floats over a slam and smashes Jericho’s face into the railing! Cassidy bleeding from his right ear, he climbs a row of steps and runs down them… SLOTH PUNCH PUTS JERICHO THROUGH A TABLE!
Orange stands tall on the road case and surveys his handiwork before giving us the thumbs up.
