It began with a baseball bat shot and some produce-related assault, which led to uncharacteristically-fiery (on the part of the babyface) revenge. The war between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy has been heating up.
Now Jericho and Cassidy, who are set to face off at the upcoming Fyter Fest event, are scheduled for a confrontation on this Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite.
Two episodes of Dynamite ago, Jericho busted open Cassidy with a baseball bat, before going on to assault him with a sack filled with blood oranges. Cassidy gained revenge during a tag team match pitting Jericho and Sammy Guevera against Best Friends this past week. There, Cassidy (disguised as a cameraman) tripped Guevara during the match, before beating down Jericho after the bout.
The current card for Fyter Fest, taking place across the July 1 and July 8 editions of AEW Dynamite, is as follows:
*AEW World Heavyweight: Jon Moxley (c) vs. Brian Cage
*AEW TNT: Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Jake Hager
*AEW Women's: Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Penelope Ford
*AEW World Tag Team: Kenny Omega and Adam Page (c) vs. Best Friends
*Chris Jericho vs. Orange Cassidy
