Late last week, AEW announced a surprising (but synergistic) partnership: Adult Swim’s hit cartoon and fast food restaurant sauce influencer ‘Rick and Morty.’

TNT later clarified the connection as a Halloween promotion, with fans in attendance getting Rick and/or Morty masks to wear during the show.
To celebrate new episodes of Rick and Morty coming to Adult Swim on November 10th, the twosome is invading All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite! Those who attend the October 30th show in Charleston, WV, will have the opportunity to get one of four special Rick and Morty masks.
As it turns out, that wasn’t the only bit of promotion. For their match against QT Marshall and the artists formerly known as the Beaver Boys, the Best Friends (Chuckie T and Trent) and America’s greatest wrestler Orange Cassidy got a full ‘Rick and Morty’ entrance with costumes — Rick, Morty, and I guess ‘Cool Rick’ –and commentary from Rick and Morty themselves.
They’d end up winning the match with most of their costumes intact, and the only thing missing was a pair of Mr. Meeseeks showing up to hit QT Marshall with the Strong Zero.
Let’s hope the promotion continues on the show, and that Orange Cassidy pops up at some point during the upcoming season 4.
