Possible reason why Rey Fenix dropped the International title to Orange Cassidy on AEW Dynamite

As seen during the October 10th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite, Rey Fenix lost the International title to Orange Cassidy in a match that was originally supposed to be Fenix vs. Jon Moxley. However, Moxley was not medically cleared to return from his concussion.

Fenix was selling his back during the match but in regards to why he dropped the title, Fightful Select noted the following…

“According to sources close to him, Fenix is facing visa issues that will have him out of action on AEW TV. We aren’t sure the length, but the decision was made to move the International Title that was never set to be on him in the first place.”
