The AEW Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale on Nov. 20 featured a staple gun and a chair, but perhaps no attack was more violent than the kicks of Orange Cassidy.
Standing toe-to-toe with Billy Gunn, Cassidy unleashed his feet of fury on Gunn, who could barely walk after the attack. Gunn was eliminated shortly after Cassidy's kicks.
Speaking to Bill Apter, Gunn reflected on Cassidy's brutal leg kicks.
"I would have [won] but Hangman hit me with the flippity do-da [Buckshot Lariat], and I'd never been hit with a flippity do-da. So, I got knocked a little senseless. Then, the complete assault by Orange Cassidy was unprovoked. Along with that brutal assault, compared to Hangman's stuff, I got hit top to bottom," said Gunn.
When asked why Cassidy doesn't have much to say, Gunn said, "If you had lethal and deadly kicks like he has, you wouldn't have to talk much either. Bruce Lee didn't talk a bunch. You don't have to fight if you don't talk."
Gunn, who also works backstage as a producer, was eliminated by Hangman. The Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale was won by MJF and Hangman Page, who would compete against each other a week later for the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF won the ring with a little help from Wardlow.
