With Jon Moxley regrettably out of the tournament for personal reasons, how will this affect Orange Cassidy's semi-final?

Here’s the announced card for tonight’s AEW Dynamite:

-- Cody Rhodes vs. Andrade El Idolo
-- AAA World Tag Team Championship: FTR (c) vs. Aerostar & Samuray del Sol (Samuray del Sol is former WWE wrestler Kalisto, who was released by WWE in April.)
-- World Title Eliminator Tournament Round 2: Orange Cassidy vs. TBA – A wrestler to be announced will replace Jon Moxley against Cassidy
-- TBS Championship Tournament Round 1: Anna Jay vs. Jamie Hayter
-- Kenny Omega vs. Alan “5” Angels

So, the replacement for Mox turned out to be God's Forsaken Champion, MIRO. He seems to still be cutting his promos against God directly. It's a testament to how good Cassidy and Miro are that I thought Cassidy had a chance right up until the end.

Miro wins, and advances to face Danielson. I suppose AEW always had this as a plan whether it was Mox or Miro, to have former WWE stars face off on each other. One of my early booking fantasies for Danielson was that he would come into AEW as a "gimmick hater" with contempt for guys like Cassidy.

I keep telling my friends that Cody is shaping to be AEW's John Cena, and him losing to Andrade via FTR trickery seems like the sort of thing they'd do to keep Cena looking strong while keeping him out of contention.

Also, I'm not trying to sound thirsty but god-DAMN Paige Van Zant. How is it that (other than Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky) she has the best promo in America's Top Team? Someone backstage has got to be thinking of giving her a solo run in the women's division, right?
