Welcome back. With so many wrestlers around the industry today, it can mean a lot to have one of them show up again. For one reason or another, a wrestler might be gone from their promotion, some of which might not be for the best reasons. That can make for a very nice return, which was the case again this week, as an injured star made his surprise return in a pretty big spot.
Orange Cassidy made an onAEW television this week. Following a victory over Dax Harwood, Will Ospreay and the United Empire came to the ring. Harwood’s partner Cash Wheeler and the Best Friends ran in for a beatdown. This brought out Cassidy, who stared down Ospreay. Later in the show, a match between them was set for Forbidden Door on June 26. Cassidy has been out of action with a shoulder injury since the March 6 Revolution pay per view. Cassidy has appeared since the, but this was first time without his arm in a sling.
Opinion: This is good to see as there is always something positive about a wrestler returning from injury. Cassidy remains one of the most popular stars in AEW and it is good to have him back after such a long time away. I’m not sure about putting him in such a serious match at Forbidden Door, but there is something about the reactions he get that you can’t recreate.
What do you think of Cassidy? What should he do next? Let us know in the comments below.
