Orange Cassidy teased a heel turn PAC ambushed in the backstage area Last week’s AEW Dynamite set up the All-Atlantic Championship match for this week’s Dynamite: Grand Slam special episode. Successful title defense against Cassidy this week.
PAC had the upper hand for most of the match, but decided to use a stranger: the Ring Bell Hammer. Put away Cassidy for a pinfall win.
This was a successful All-Atlantic title defense in PAC’s AEW programming, Beat Kip Sabian in All Out Zero Hour Pre-ShowAfter winning the newly set championship at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view on June 26, PAC defended the title in various indie promotions such as RevPro and OTT.
PAC and the Lucha Brothers, collectively known as the Death Triangle, are also the current AEW World Trios Champions and won the title after defeating Cassidy & Best Friends on the September 7 episode of AEW Dynamite. Given that Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fenix are still big fan favorites in babyfaces, it remains to be seen whether PAC’s apparent heel his turn will affect his dynamics in Lucha Bros.
PAC, the only active dual title holder in AEW history, signed with Emerging Promotions in January 2019.
