Chris Jericho defeated Orange Cassidy at Fyter Fest, but their feud is far from over. Le Champion and Freshly Squeezed will battle again. Jericho will also avoid having a ton of OJ dumped on him in the future as well.
During Jericho’s Saturday Night Special, he revealed his original pitch for that segment on Fight For The Fallen. Cassidy ended up dumping a ton of juice on the Inner Circle. The original idea was much more theatrical.
Jericho initially envisioned Cassidy recreating Kurt Angle’s famous milk truck bit, only with orange juice. Sadly, the setup at Daily’s Place wouldn’t allow for that kind of stunt.
“Obviously I got the idea from that from the bloodbaths that we used to do in the 90s with ‘The Brood’, which was Gangrel, and Edge, and Christian. And then we have somebody standing there and they would get dumped with blood, and that was kind of what I had the idea from.”
“I originally wanted Orange to come into the venue in an orange juice truck, kind of like [Kurt Angle] did with the milk truck or whatever it may be. But if you see at Daily’s Place whenever they have cars come in – Cody tried to drive it in that one time, and now they have FTR driving. And you can only get to a certain area and then you have to stop, so you couldn’t get a whole orange juice truck, even if there’s such a thing. But I’m sure we could have made one, and he would have sprayed orange juice on [us].”
Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy will have more angles to come. They’re not likely to leave Daily’s Place for a while. So, Freshly Squeezed paying homage to Kurt Angle might have to wait until they have to proper circumstances.
