Chris Jericho promo

Grade: A, Fantastic segment once Orange Cassidy came out. The orange juice pour was done perfectly. Another memorable moment in this star-making feud.

Chris Jericho came out with a jug of orange juice in his hand, gloating after barely beating Orange Cassidy in the main event of last week’s show.

The Ayatollah of Rock’N’Rolla declared his match against Cassidy as one of the best matches in AEW history, bragging about how his match led to the company winning the ratings war. He then started talking about the 18-49 demographic and about how he’s never lost that demo, declaring himself the “King of the Ratings” and the “Demo-God”.

OK, I have to admit, the ratings nicknames were clever, and, of course, he knows talking about the ratings in this way is going to get him some nice heat from fans sick of the talk about ratings.

Jericho said he agrees with people who stated that Cassidy looked like a star in the ring with him. Cassidy, the advertisers, fans, and everyone else want a rematch…Jericho ran down the list, and, of course, he said that he won’t be giving Cassidy a rematch. Even though he admitted that Cassidy pushed him to the edge.

The wrestlers in the audience chanted that Jericho is scared of facing Cassidy, yet Jericho said that he isn’t swayed by the chants or scared of Cassidy. Jericho toasted to Cassidy by drinking from the bottle and then poured the rest out “for his dead career”.

And then Cassidy’s music hit!

The “You Scared” chants continued as Jericho stared down Cassidy, and he told Cassidy that he doesn’t have what it takes to be in the ring with him. Jericho called Cassidy a lazy, entitled sloth with a bad attitude, reiterating that he will never grant Cassidy a rematch.

As Jericho started yelling more violently and cursing, Cassidy raised his thumb up….then down….and out poured orange juice from the sky on top of the Inner Circle!!!

The best part? He asked for a towel, and the towel he was given to wipe off had Orange Cassidy’s face on it!
