Orange Cassidy: When Someone Mentions The International Title, I Feel Like, 'That Should Be Mine'

Orange Cassidy hasn't gotten over the AEW International Championship.

To date, Orange Cassidy is the longest-reigning AEW International Champion in the company's history. Cassidy was the man holding the championship when it was rechristened the International Championship from the All-Atlantic Title and he's the only man to defend the championship in the main event of a pay-per-view, losing it to Jon Moxley at AEW All Out 2023.

Cassidy still feels like that championship is a part of him, recently telling WHO 13's Mark Freund that every time he hears an announcer mention the championship, there's a voice inside of him that tells him it should still be long to him.

"I have not forgotten about the International Championship. Every time I hear, 'International Championship' from one of our announcers, I get a little something inside of me that's like, 'That should be mine.' Unfortunately, it's being held by the best professional wrestler in the world right now," he said. "You talk about that night [when Cassidy faced Will Ospreay at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door], I almost had him. I just hope he's ready for the rematch because I've been thinking about it a lot."

Cassidy also talked about what makes Will Ospreay such a special professional wrestler, calling everything he does "effortless."

"He's a savant of wrestling. He does everything so effortlessly and perfect. It kind of makes you frustrated about how a person could exist that can just immediately get something," said Cassidy. "I think the thing that Will Ospreay embodies in his wrestling is, it's exciting. Everything he does is exciting and suspenseful. So yeah, I don't want to talk about him that much because I'm still upset he has my championship."

Both Ospreay and Cassidy have different opponents at this year's AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.

Ospreay is looking to capture the AEW World Championship from Swerve Strickland. On the other hand, Cassidy looks to test himself against Zack Sabre Jr. Check out the full card here.
