The show will be a little different tonight. Jon Moxley was set to perform but due to exposure to someone who was exposed to “The Virus”, Mox asked to step out to protect his “brothers and sisters” from any possible harm. I praise him to the heights for his concern.

The announcers talked about Cody vs Jake Haker at Fyter Fest. We went to the Press Confrerence. It was hosted by Brandi Rhodes. It was so cool to hear from Liz Hunter of PWI.

Cody mentioned that the TNT title belt is a work in progess.

Cage did curls and toosed his poor victim around. Hammer Throw to Joe Cruz. Body Lock Suplex. Running Powerbomb Throw. Drill Claw!

I so HATE squash matches. Taz had the microphone and he kept calling out Moxley. Taz pointed to the camera and said Jon was sitting on his *ss at home. Taz mocked Moxley for not coming to work with some B.S. Excuse. Not true. Taz said the title was in grave danger. Taz knew Moxley was about to be done. Taz is so good as a manager. Fonzie taught him well. Smile.

Mr. Brodie Lee nad Colt Cabana were talking. Lee was still trying to recruit Colt to join his organization. Lee wanted to have Colt join him to face SCU at Fyter Fest. Colt wasn’t too sure about it. Lee called Colt his “Best Friend”. Weird.

The announcers ran down the first night of Fyter Fest’s card. It will start next week and end on the 8th of July. The Women’s, Tag Team and TNT titles will be defended.

We also got a partial look at night 2. I really want to watch Orange Cassidy vs Chris Jericho. The main event will see Brian Cage vs Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title.

Tony got another note from Baker. Britt sent nasty remarks to Big Swole. Britt was encased in plexiglass so she thought she was safe. Swole went on top of the cube and dumped trash all over Britt. Too funny. Rebel tried to make her go away.

Santana (w/Ortiz) vs Matt Hardy

Sammy Guevara was the original opponent but he is currently suspended. I absolutely will NOT mention why but it is all over the Net.

Ortiz came in and attacked Matt Hardy with a slapjack. Street Sleeper on Hardy! Private Party rushed down to aid their mentor.

Rush Hour is on next. Awesome.

Orange Cassidy came from the back. Tyson Raines still wants Orange in the ring. If you aren’t familiar with Tyson, he is one of the top guys for the new Wild West Championship Wrestling group, based in Reno, NV.

Chris Jericho then came out to face the man that has irritated him for so many weeks, now. Hey, how about a new tag team with Orange Cassidy and Pineapple Pete? Orange was just maxing and relaxing in the corner. Jericho stated with dumb jokes about chickens crossing the road. Jericho said Orange was a boring joke like the chicken joke. Orange didn’t say a word. Jericho said Orange’s name was stupid and so were his actions. Jericho said the only reason he is there is because fans love Cassidy. Why? Jericho compared Orange to Brian Pillman. He praised Orange for getting over for being himself, well sort of. Chris feels that Orange doesn’t have what it takes. Jericho threatened to beat Orange in 30 seconds. Jericho promised the Orange Cassidy Experience would run out of juice.

Cassidy took the stick. Chris looked a little confused. He just sat it down without saying a word. He did the insult kicks to Jericho’s legs. Too funny. He then slid his hands in his pocktets. Al Bundy just smiled. Jericho took off he shades and destroyed them. Orange then Speared Jericho and the two went wild on each other. Cassidy tore into Chris like never before. Cassidy really tore into Jericho until a shot tothe face stopped him. Orange held his own and rocked Le Champion. They fought up intothe crowd. Solid punches by Orange. Back Hand by Chris. Orange clubbed the neck of the former World Champion. Orange was sent into trunks. Jericho used a Boom to clock Orange. Orange was thrown into a case.
