Orange Cassidy Hit George Washington With Orange Punch At Washington Nationals Game

Given that Orange Cassidy is in the midst of a record-setting AEW International Championship reign, having successfully defended the title 20 times, he is quite deserving of a night out on the town with friends. Who could've known, however, that said night out would feature Cassidy punching out a former president?


That's exactly what Cassidy did when he and fellow AEW stars Chuck Taylor, Kris Statlander, and Wheeler Yuta arrived at last night's Washington Nationals game. In a scene captured on Twitter, the three Best Friends and former Best Friend got heavily involved with the traditional 4th inning Presidents Race, with Taylor taking out Thomas Jefferson, Statlander taking out Abraham Lincoln, and Yuta putting Teddy Roosevelt through a table. This seemed to secure George Washington's victory until he was stopped by Cassidy at the finish line; a struggle ultimately led to Cassidy delivering an Orange Punch to knock Washington out, allowing a resurgent Jefferson to pick up the win. Cassidy and Jefferson then posed for pictures, while Washington lay on the ground, surely ruing how his confrontation with Cassidy cost him a 16th straight victory in the race.


The whole scene was especially notable for featuring Statlander, who has been out since August recovering from a torn ACL, and Yuta, who famously left Taylor, Cassidy, Statlander, and Trent of the Best Friends behind for the Blackpool Combat Club. As of this writing, there is no word on how BCC members Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, and Claudio Castagnoli are handling this development. Cassidy will now shift his focus from presidents and back to the ring tonight on "AEW Dynamite." He will team with Bandido, Adam Cole, and Roderick Strong to take on the Jericho Appreciation Society in eight-man tag team action.
