There are a number of stars to watch on the All Elite Wrestling roster one of which is Orange Cassidy. There’s no denying that Cassidy is dedicated to the idea of living his gimmick, and that approach seems to be working out quite well for him so far.
During a recent episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast Matt shared his thoughts on Orange Cassidy, and he praised the current AEW International Champion for never breaking character.
“Orange Cassidy is tremendous. He’s at the top of the list when it comes to performers in AEW. He’s out there playing a character that is not easy to do, but he’s very committed to the gig. I can tell you how much I respect someone who does that because I did that as Broken Matt Hardy.”
Hardy then went on to compare Orange Cassidy to The Undertaker as he pointed out some of the similarities when it comes to the path they’ve taken with their respective careers.
“In some ways, Orange Cassidy to Tony [Khan], at this stage right now, reminds me of the relationship between Vince McMahon and The Undertaker,” Hardy said. “[Taker] was like Vince’s go-to guy, a guy that Vince knew could go out and get the job done. On top of that, those guys were both great wrestlers but played outlandish and over-the-top gimmicks. There’s a crazy similarity there.”
