Orange Cassidy’s Plans For His Current Title Reign, Athena Wants To Be A Regular On AEW TV



Orange Cassidy defeated Rey Fenix a couple of weeks ago to recapture the AEW International Championship and he doesn’t plan to lose the title again.

In a recent interview with Bex & Buster, Cassidy discussed regaining the title and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On what’s next for his title reign: “I don’t ever plan to [let the title go]. I didn’t plan on losing in the first place. I get that question a lot. ‘What’s next for you?’ I never like to think too far ahead. This is the most important thing, and it was the most important thing. When I lost it, I was kind of like, I didn’t really feel like I had a purpose, which is bizarre for a human being to say, and it’s something I never thought I would experience. When your identity, for almost a year, is that you’re the International Champion that is so used to wrestling and defending the belt every single week, and when you don’t, you’re kind of lost.”

On regaining the title: “When the opportunity came up of me trying to get it back, I obviously took it. Rey Fenix is one of the best wrestlers in the world, but he was banged up, if not as bad or worse than I was when I lost it. I have it now, I’m very grateful, there’s unfinished business I have with this, and it has to do with the person that took it from me in the first place. I feel like I have something to prove now. The first time around, I was just defending it to win. I don’t think I have to prove anything to anybody, ever, but for some reason I think I do. Maybe it’s in my head.”

In other AEW news, Athena is a mainstay on ROH TV as the reigning Women’s World Champion, but she aims to appear more consistently on AEW TV.

During a recent K&S WrestleFest virtual signing, Athena spoke about her ROH and AEW TV screen time. She said,

“Right now, I’m focused on Ring of Honor and helping build that brand up. I do have more aspirations outside of Ring of Honor. I want to work for AEW more often, I want to be a main staple on AEW television, as I’m doing for Ring of Honor right now. I would love to do both at the same time. As far as my career goes, in the long term, I kind of go where the wind blows. Never say never as far as what comes in the future. What I’m focused on now is just building myself up because it’s taken me quite a long time to get where I am currently. Hopefully, you can call me three belts Athena in AEW when the TBS Championship, AEW Women’s Championship, and Ring of Honor Championship are all around my waist. That would be the highest aspiration right now, to hopefully main event an AEW pay-per-view. I’m going with the flow.”
