Recent weeks in AEW have been rife with betrayal and bitter rivalries, particularly within the once-unbreakable bond of the Best Friends. Trent Beretta’s shocking defection from the group has left fans reeling.

Tensions reached a boiling point on the May 8th edition of Dynamite when Orange Cassidy and Trent Beretta faced off in a heated grudge match. Despite Cassidy clinching victory with a crafty roll-up, the aftermath descended into chaos as Beretta unleashed his fury on his former comrade.

A brutal piledriver onto the unforgiving steel steps left Cassidy incapacitated, while the conniving presence of Don Callis added fuel to the fiery altercation. Amidst the chaos, Kris Statlander’s desperate pleas fell on deaf ears as Beretta’s betrayal unfolded in front of a stunned audience.

WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley offered his candid insights on the unsettling segment during an episode of Busted Open Radio. Bubba Ray, known for his no-nonsense approach, expressed disappointment at the brutality of the piledriver and questioned the resilience of Orange Cassidy, who miraculously walked away from the harrowing ordeal.

Here’s what the Tag Team Legend said:

“I don’t know about you folks but the world of professional wrestling I come from – if you get piledriven onto steel ring steps, you’re done. You’re out. It’s a f**king piledriver on steel steps. Come on! If that wasn’t enough, Trent Beretta decides to pick up Orange Cassidy and give him basically a teeter-totter manoeuvre into the throat and neck area on the underneath of the iron ring. So a piledriver onto the steel and a teeter-totter neckbreaker move onto the iron frame of the ring.

Now everybody loves Orange Cassidy but not enough to actually come save Orange Cassidy. Kris Statlander finally comes down to create a bit of separation and lo and behold the camera pans out and Orange Cassidy is standing with a steel chair in his hand ready to defend himself from any other attack from Trent Beretta.

You people are gonna sit there and tell me I’m nuts, you’re gonna tell me I’m crazy, tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, tell me I hate AEW – I would hate any company who did this. I would hate WWE, I would hate TNA, I would hate Ring of Honor, I would hate New Japan, I would hate your sister’s a$$ and every company in between who ever decided it was ok to have a talent no sell a piledriver on the steel steps, a teeter-totter neckbreaker to the iron frame of the ring and be back up 10 seconds to 15 seconds later prepared to defend himself.

Orange Cassidy is 120 pounds soaking wet with a brick in his pocket and a feather on the top of his head. And we’re to believe he’s indestructible?! Even the most indestructible of indestructibles should not be able to withstand that. Orange Cassidy should have been stretchered out, neck in a brace, whatever. Not on his feet and not defending himself.

Where I come from that’s major heat and I think even the most diehard AEW fans listening tonight know in their hearts that Uncle Bully was right. I saw Road Warrior Hawk no sell a Jerry Lawler piledriver. That’s Road Warrior Hawk. And it was a piledriver in the ring, not on steel steps and immediately followed up by another move directly to the neck area. I’m sorry folks, this is where AEW needs a lot of help.”
