With the AEW brand split on the horizon, it is reported that Orange Cassidy’s International Championship will be the “world title” on offer on the Collision brand.
With it’s current champion Orange Cassidy currently on the most impressive run of title defences ever, the belt has been elevated to one of the top titles in the company.
He has held onto the title over 21 title defences, although it is clearly taking the toll on the star. He is set to defend the belt in a 21-man “Blackjack Battle Royal” at Double or Nothing, where he could lose the belt finally.
However, Orange Cassidy has beaten the odds before. He was brought into AEW for one battle royal in 2019, as a comedy wrestler who saw title progression in the company.
He soon smashed all expectations, showcasing himself as one of the best wrestlers in the world, and one of the biggest stars in all of AEW.
If you were wondering about why Orange Cassidy is getting such a huge push in recent months, it makes total sense if recent reports are to be believed.
Tony Khan is reportedly intent on pushing Orange Cassidy and the AEW International Championship as their own “world title”, exclusively on AEW Collision.
PW Insider reported that Tony Khan has been strategically elevating the status of the AEW International Championship. The intention is to showcase it prominently during Collision.
The new Saturday evening show is set to be the next big show for AEW, and will feature big stars like CM Punk, Andrade and Miro, among others.
It looks like Orange Cassidy will be a part of AEW Collision, being their world champion as he elevated the AEW International Championship to the level of MJF’s AEW Championship.
