Hikaru Shida and Orange Cassidy both picked up huge wins in their respective matches last night at AEW All Out, despite being seen as the underdogs heading in.
Shida managed to retain her AEW Women's Championship against the dominant NWA Women's Champion Thunder Rosa after what was arguably the match of the PPV. Many assumed Rosa would win the title, thus giving her a reason to officially sign with the company, but it wasn't to be and Hikaru pulled out the victory with a devastating running knee.
Not nearly as impressive was the sloppy Mimosa Mayhem Match between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy, which the latter won by hitting the Demo God with a pair of Orange Punches to send him flying into a vat of tasty breakfast booze.
This was the rubber match, and while it was admirable of Jericho to put Cassidy over by losing to him twice in a row, they really should have put a bit more thought and effort into this one. Orange is undeniably popular and a highly entertaining character, but he's not so great in the ring, and, quite frankly, Jericho is nowhere near the wrestler he once was.
Anyway, it should be interesting to see how Le Champion responds to the loss this Wednesday on Dynamite.
