It was recently announced by All Elite Wrestling that on Wednesday, July 1st and July 8th at the company’s Fyter Fest PPV “Le Champion” Chris Jericho will battle “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy in a one-on-one match.
The match was made due to Chris Jericho’s attack on Orange Cassidy during this past week’s episode of Dynamite. Last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite then saw Orange Cassidy exact a bit of revenge on Chris Jericho when Jericho and Guevara took on Best Friends (Trent and Chuck Taylor) in a #1 Contender’s Tag Team Match with the winners moving on to Fyter Fest to challenge Kenny Omega and “Hangman” Adam Page for their AEW World Tag Team Titles.
Towards the end of the #1 Contender’s Tag Team Match, Sammy Guevara got tripped up by an AEW cameraman, which was the reason for The Inner Circle to lose the match. Orange Cassidy then revealed himself to be the cameraman and would attack Chris Jericho shortly after. As AEW Dynamite was coming to a close, the match between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy was then made official.
