With another win under his belt, we can say that AEW’s Orange Cassidy is on an historic streak.
One of the mainstays of the company, and perhaps the most unlikely top stars, Cassidy has held the AEW International Championship for the better part of the last nine months.
The 270+ day reign is not, however, the historic streak.
According to TJR, Cassidy’s win at Saturday’s Battle of the Belts VII was his 26th consecutive successful title defense.
With that, he alone holds the record for most consecutive AEW title defenses.
Prior to Saturday, Orange shared the record with former TBS Champion Jade Cargill.
Orange Cassidy Is On An Historic Streak
There is a lot of history being made all around in the world of wrestling nowadays.
Everyone is likely quite aware of the damage Roman Reigns has been doing to the WWE history books.
Before they lost, Jimmy and Jey Uso did similar things with the WWE tag title records.
Gunther is doing similar work with the Intercontinental Championship.
While AEW has not been in business nearly as long, and it’s history books are not as extensive…it is still quite awesome to witness historic streaks.
Cargill’s was certainly special. Seeing Orange Cassidy surpass her mark while setting his own is awesome.
Something else this also does? In case there was any doubt of where the star ranks in the AEW locker room…having such a crazy good run should take care of a lot of that.
You don’t have a talent hold a title, regardless of which one, for nearly a year, if you don’t view them as a mainstay within the company.
While he did not get his start with AEW, Cassidy is without a doubt enjoying the most sustained success within his time as a professional wrestler.
It’s going to be fun to see how much longer he can hold onto the gold.
