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.”
Orange Cassidy is looking at that belt like how Gollum was staring at that ring. Orange Cassidy is about to go down a dark path. He almost ignored his friends. #AEWDynamite #AEWTitleTuesday pic.twitter.com/aMhXrvTpxT
