Orange Cassidy Laments Not Being Able To Make Jon Moxley Bleed, Despite Him Trying

Orange Cassidy tried.

At AEW All Out last weekend, Orange Cassidy defended his AEW International Championship for what would be the final time as after a brutal battle, Moxley pinned down the broken champion for the 3 count with the Paradigm Shift.

Unlike most big matches for Jon, he did not bleed during the match despite Cassidy being busted open during the match.

Speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Cassidy commented on Moxley’s lack of blood while also explaining why he was covered in it.

“It wasn’t for lack of trying. But for a guy who bleeds as much as Jon, I couldn’t get him to. I don’t know what that says about me,”

“That’s the guy who put AEW on his shoulders when we needed carrying. The respect I have for Jon Moxley is immense. He leads by example, and his presence and actions make us better professional wrestlers and better people. Yes, when you’re in a ring with him, you’re going to bleed,”

My trajectory through AEW is only because of the AEW fans. I appreciated the moment they gave me. They did that for me, but it wasn’t just for me. It was for them, too. They’re the reason I was covered in blood. I wrestle for them. They make our company run, and I don’t think we give enough credit for what they do,”

Jon Moxley is set to make his first defense of the championship against AR Fox on tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite.

Time will tell what comes next for Orange, but for now he will look to recover after around 30 defenses of the International Title.
