AEW had to find the perfect replacement for Jon Moxley

Prior to the news becoming public, Moxley was lined up to face Orange Cassidy in the semifinals of the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament. Had he participated and won, Moxley would face Daniel Bryan in the finals at Full Gear.

However, Moxley pulled out of the tournament after admitting himself to the rehabilitation program. As a result, Cassidy was left without an opponent. Maybe AEW could have given him the easy pass, and let him qualify for finals without a fight, but Tony Khan had other ideas.

He found a replacement who is as vicious as Jon Moxley, if not more. AEW booked Orange Cassidy against Miro!

While Cassidy tried his level best to overpower the beast, it didn’t work out in his favour. Miro crushed Cassidy with a toss and crash, securing his place in the final round at Full Gear.

There’s a good chance that Jon Moxley would have overpowered Orange Cassidy had he continued in the tournament. But, health comes first, and when he returns, his fans will be in the arena with loud cheers!
