AEW International Championship Match: Orange Cassidy defends against Jon Moxley
Both men remain in the corner for a moment, letting the adulation soak in a bit as the crowd show their appreciation for the champ and the challenger. Cassidy nonchalantly heads to the center of the ring and Mox follows. Cassidy starts to put his hands in his pockets…and Mox is not pleased with that, going after him hard with some chops!
Mox continues the beatdown on the champ, who manages to catch him off guard with a dropkick and looks for an Orange Punch early…but Mox hits him with a low suplex that causes a bit of damage! Mox with another, and Cassidy looks in a bad way here.
Chants for both men now as Mox brings the champ to this feet, laying into him with some chops as Cassidy tries to fight back…only for Mox to send him into the corner hard!

Mox right back on those boots to the head of the champion, who ends up leaving the ring. Mox pursues him, sending Cassidy into the ring post to knock him out for a bit.
The ref leaves the ring to check on Cassidy as Mox steps back in the ring, waiting on Cassidy to try and get back in…only to go right back after him, sending him to the announce table before taking a bite out of Freshly Squeezed!
The ref is yelling at Mox to bring things back into the ring, and Mox finally backs off to head back in as the ref gets ready to start the count. Cassidy is busted open now as he crawls toward the ring…getting back at six as he rolls back in, but Mox drops him with a stalling piledriver for a nearfall!
Mox goes back at the face of the champ, pulling at whatever he can before the ref forces him to let go. Mox sets Cassidy on the ropes now, hitting a series of crossface punches on the champion that really takes a lot out of him. Mox tells the ref to check on Cassidy, who is still in it as Mox goes back on the attack…but Cassidy strikes back!
Except that Mox is at the ready, and now he’s mocking Cassidy with hands in pockets before driving his boot into the face of the champ in the corner. The ref forces him away for a moment, but Mox sets Cassidy up on the top turnbuckle before hitting some headbutts and looks for a superplex…but the champ escapes!
Cassidy rakes the back of Mox…AND THEN TAKES A BITE! Mox drops down as the champ hits the Diamond DDT, setting up for an Orange Punch…but Mox fights him off with some strikes of his own! Mox blocks a Beach Break, but takes a PK and an Orange Punch as the champ makes the cover…BUT MOX KICKS OUT!
Cassidy is slow to his feet but goes for the Beach Break…only for Mox to reverse into the Gotch style piledriver! Nearfall, as Cassidy reverses into one of his own for another nearfall! They trade off until Mox locks in body scissors for the choke…before transitioning to an armbar! But Cassidy fights out of it narrowly!
Mox gets him with a LeBelle Lock instead, and Cassidy nearly taps…but stops himself! He’s fading, though…but fights back, getting to the ropes before Mox can cinch in the bulldog choke! Cassidy rolls out of the ring to take a breather as Mox pursues him once gaain, this time ripping some tape off the padding to remove it from the floor!
He pulls out a section of the padding as he sets Cassidy up for the piledriver…but Cassidy reverses it into a Beach Break onto the concrete floor! Mox gets to his knees…but is caught with a dropkick to the head right into the steps by Cassidy! The champ rolls back into the ring as the ref starts the count…and he gets to nine before leaping into the ring!
Mox is staggering on his feet as Cassidy hits an Orange Punch…and another! Cassidy takes the elbow pad off looking for a third…and takes a cutter by Mox! Mox with the underhook, but Cassidy escapes…and hits an Orange Punch, followed by a spear and the cover!
BUT MOX KICKS OUT!
Cassidy slowly gets to his feet as Mox gets to his knees…and cassidy finally gets his hands in his pockets! And then he hits the “dangerous” kicks on the dangerous Mox…only he goes into ACTUAL hard kicks! Only for Mox to hit him with a lariat…but the champ is back up! Another lariat, and another! Cover! CASSIDY KICKS OUT AGAIN!
DEATH RIDER BY MOXLEY!
Mox covers…BUT THE CHAMP GETS A SHOULDER UP!
Mox is back up to his feet once more as the champ struggles to stand. Cassidy holds his hands up as if telling him to stop…only to flip Mox off! ANOTHER DEATH RIDER BY MOXLEY!
