TNT Championship Match: Orange Cassidy Vs. Cody (C)

This week Orange Cassidy sought to take the TNT Championship from Cody. To stop the Dark Order from getting overly involved in the match, it was made a lumberjack match by AEW higher-ups. The two started in a traditional battle, something rather strange for Cassidy as they tried lock-ups and takedowns on each other. Cody focused on a wist lock, which he then used to flip Cassidy into the turnbuckle. Cassidy tried a roll-up but only received a one count. Cody lifted Cassidy above his head and dropped him face-first mid-ring.

Cassidy reversed the momentum and lifted Cody, then dropping him mid-ring. Cody pulled Cassidy leg through the rope and twisted into a Dragon’s screw. Cassidy then used the ropes to smash into the TNT Champion, who fell outside the ring. Best Friends lifted Cody and then dropped him straight down. Back in the ring, Cassidy flew off the top rope. Cassidy attempted a swinging DDT, but Cody reversed; after falling into Dark Order, Cody returned, and Cassidy successfully hit the swinging DDT.

Cassidy received a two count. Both men fell out of the ring once again but were ‘helped’ back into the ring by Best Friends and The Natural Nightmares. At this point, the match became pretty evenly fought. Cody locked in the figure four on Cassidy, but he was able to crawl to the ropes and escape. Cody attempted to continue attacking Cody, but he fell out of the ring straight into Dark Order. Dark Order attacked Cody with the other heels before Cassidy came to Cody’s rescue.

The two opponents returned to the ring and climbed to the top rope. Cody suplexed Cassidy into all of the lumberjacks. Cody hit the Cody Cutter and started to focus on getting the match done. Cassidy and Cody hit each other with as many huge moves as possible. Cassidy flew into Cody and hit him with everything he had but still only a two count.

Deeb’s dominance lasted all of a few seconds before Hirsch locked in an armbar. Hirsch then threw Deeb around the ring into the turnbuckles.

Deeb quickly hit a neck breaker on her opponent in a way to escape the torment. Hirsch climbed to the top rope and tried to fly onto Deeb, but her opponent moved at the last moment.

Still, Omega simply laughed and then slapped him before launching a full attack. Omega continued kicking Pentagon, defeating any counter-attack Pentagon threw at him. Kenny got a little too cocky, and Pentagon took advantage. Omega fell out of the ring, and Pentagon flew into him.

Pentagon continued full steam ahead as he knocked Omega into the barrier and then slammed him into the ring post. Omega started to punch back, but one kick from Pentagon stopped Omega once again. Pentagon twisted Omega’s head between the ring ropes, not loosening his momentum in any way. The opponents ended up in the heel section, where Omega finally turned it around, using a beer cooler to target Pentagon’s injured knee.
