Orange Cassidy: The Things That Trent Beretta And Kris Statlander Have Been Saying Are Kind Of True

Orange Cassidy says his friends' betrayals have caused him to do some self-reflection.

Orange Cassidy is having a rough go of it on AEW programming as of late. The complete dissolution of Best Friends due to Chuck Taylor potentially needing to retire from competition and the decision of Trent Beretta and Kris Statlander to turn their back on Cassidy and assault him physically, has left Cassidy without any long-term partners.

During a recent interview with WHO 13's Mark Freund ahead of the June 12 episode of AEW Dynamite in Des Moines, Iowa, Cassidy revealed that he has begun to wonder if he truly hadn't been the best friend to Beretta and Cassidy, admitting that he believes there's some truth to what they've been saying lately.

"Hopefully, the story is going where I don't get beat up anymore, but I know that's not gonna happen. Yeah, my world is falling apart around me. All my friends have left me and now they're trying to beat me up. I think the thing that hurt the absolute worst, was Kris Statlander punching me in the face. We relied on each other a lot," he said. "The things that they're saying when they're not punching me in the face are kind of true. It kind of makes me self-reflect, like, 'Have I have I not been a good friend?' So there's a lot of self-reflection and it's very lonely. Because for many, I mean, you watch AEW, you know, I always had a new partner every week, it seemed like, right? Now everyone's gone, and it's like, 'Oh, okay, well, then.' It's a weird feeling being on your own. I'm just grateful that there are good people in AEW, like Willow Nightingale, and Kyle O'Reilly, for that sake, too, who are willing to step up and help me out."

Cassidy will team with Kyle O'Reilly and Mark Briscoe on the June 12 AEW Dynamite against Trent Beretta, Kyle Fletcher, and Roderick Strong.
