This week on the show, Cassidy defeated Jay Lethal to retain his championship. After the match, Jarrett attacked Cassidy from behind and crushed his left knee with a guitar. Best Friends ran out to make the save, but Jarrett escaped through the audience.
Orange Cassidy beat Pac to win the championship and has successfully defended it multiple times since winning it. At AEW Revolution on Sunday night Cassidy teamed with Danhausen in a fatal four-way match for the World Tag Team Championships, but the team came up short as The Gunns retained the belts.
