Roderick Strong is the New AEW International Champion



AEW International Championship Match!

“Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy (c.) vs. Undisputed Kingdom’s Roderick Strong!


Strong targeted Orange’s back, nailing Orange with repeated back breakers. Roddy chopped away at Orange in the corner. Orange retaliated with elbow strikes. Roderick picked up Orange Cassidy and gut wrench power bombed Orange onto the top turnbuckle and ropes! Roddy grabbed Orange by the arms and began to wrench back against the ring post, making it difficult for Orange to breathe. 


“Roderick really has Orange in a bad way,” said Schiavone.


Roderick countered Orange’s swinging DDT with a rib breaker! Roddy put Orange in the Strong Hold! Orange willed himself to the bottom rope and grabbed it. Strong put Orange back in the Strong Hold! Cassidy escaped and this time connected with a DDT to Strong. Orange Cassidy followed up with a diving DDT for a near fall!


Orange rocked Roderick with the Panama Sunrise for a near fall! Roderick dodged the Orange Punch and countered with a back breaker. Orange fired back with the Orange Punch! Orange blasted Roddy with the Beach Break, but Roddy escaped the pin by touching the bottom rope with his boot. Orange got to his feet, but Roderick was there, pulping Orange with the End of Heartache and pinning Orange!


And new AEW International Champion…Roderick Strong!


Kyle O’Reilly made his return! Kyle came into the ring and he and Roderick embraced one another. Mike Bennett took off the Undisputed Kingdom t-shirt he was wearing and handed it to Kyle. Kyle handed the shirt back, whispered something into Roderick’s ear, and left the ring!


“Kyle looks pretty emotional as he’s walking away,” said Schiavone.


The fans chanted “Welcome back! Welcome back!”
