Jericho Talks Original Plans For Wed’s Segment With Cassidy

One of AEW’s top star “Le Champion” Chris Jericho recently took part in another edition of his Saturday Night Special Youtube series, where he discussed the backstage details of the original plans for the segment between himself and Orange Cassidy on last week’s Dynamite.

The segment saw Orange Cassidy get some vengeance and retribution against The Inner Circle when gallons and gallons of orange juice were dumped on them.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“Obviously I got the idea from that from the bloodbaths that we used to do in the 90s with ‘The Brood’, which was Gangrel, and Edge, and Christian.” “And then we have somebody standing there and they would get dumped with blood, and that was kind of what I had the idea from.”

“I originally wanted Orange to come into the venue in an orange juice truck, kind of like [Kurt Angle] did with the milk truck or whatever it may be.” “But if you see at Daily’s Place whenever they have cars come in – Cody tried to drive it in that one time, and now they have FTR driving. And you can only get to a certain area and then you have to stop, so you couldn’t get a whole orange juice truck, even if there’s such a thing. But I’m sure we could have made one, and he would have sprayed orange juice on [us].”

Jericho then talked about the orange truck idea not happening, which is why they went with the orange juice bath idea. Chris Jericho also talked about there being a little bit of a mistake with the spot The Inner Circle was supposed to stand on, so he just had to guess since he was in the arena earlier in the day and since it is live TV you just hope for the best.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“So then I thought, well that’s not going to happen. So then I say, ‘Well what about an orange juice bath?’ I had the idea a few weeks ago and our great team at AEW, the amazing machinists and prop guys… You never know because outside, there’s a breeze and you’ve got to stand in the right spot.” “And there’s actually a little bit of a mistake with the ‘X marks the spot’ place where I was supposed to stand, so I would just have to kind of guess because were in there earlier in the day.

“All that stuff aside, it’s live TV so you hope for the best. And when that damn orange juice came down, it hit us hard.”

Chris Jericho then talked about Vickie Guerrero always having a place in the business and her “excuse me” catchphrase being her thing and it being great and still working. Jericho also talked about being very happy to have her and every time he sees her, she reminds him of his long lost brother, Eddie Guerrero.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“We had been talking about bringing Vickie Guerrero in ever since [my] cruise, actually, and even before that to be honest with you. So, there’s always a place for Vickie in this business… I think Vickie is great.” “I love the fact that she can say, ‘Excuse me’. But I didn’t know for sure if she had that trademarked or not, so I had her say, ‘Are you kidding me?!’ Which also works too, I like that, but ‘Excuse me’ is kind of her thing and she can use it. I’m very happy to have her and every time I see her, she reminds me of my long lost brother, Eddie Guerrero.”
