Orange Cassidy Reportedly Suffers Injury At AEW Revolution

Orange Cassidy

Report claims Orange Cassidy suffered a shoulder injury at AEW Revolution.

AEW Revolution was a night of debuts, grudge matches and memorable moments. While no championships changed hands on show, a number of heated rivalries came to a head, and champions got new challengers.

The Face of the Revolution Ladder Match was a spectacular and typically unruly affair, with broken ladders as well as broken bodies being left around the ringside area. Keith Lee and Powerhouse Hobbs ended up getting launched off the stage through a table, after Lee had already thrown Orange Cassidy into another orbit, over the top rope and up the entrance way.

When all was said and done, it was Wardlow who grabbed the brass ring to win the match, but only after delivering a powerbomb from one ladder onto another, nearly breaking Ricky Starks in half in the process. In winning the match, Wardlow earned a shot at the TNT Championship.

Although the match was a firm favourite with fans, it appears that not all of the combatants made it out of the bout unscathed. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez noted that Orange Cassidy had suffered a shoulder injury. At present, it is unclear as to when he sustained the injury or the severity of the issue .

“It was largely safe which was good except Orange Cassidy apparently injured his shoulder which was the only serious injury I heard on the show,”

Immediately after the show, there were also concerns for Ricky Starks, following the powerbomb he received at the end of the match. However, speaking in the post-show media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that Starks was ok.

Elsewhere on the show, Eddie Kingston defeated Chris Jericho and Hangman Adam Page retained his AEW World Championship. Meanwhile, CM Punk triumphed over MJF in a bloody Dog Collar Match. The event also saw the debut of William Regal, who came out to calm the chaos after a closely fought contest between Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley.
