Rising star Orange Cassidy reveals why the Young Bucks insisted on him joining AEW. His quirky persona has caught the attention of the viewers.
Orange Cassidy isn’t someone you imagine when you think of a professional wrestling. He doesn’t look like a pro-wrestler or even wrestle like one. However, it is his peculiarity in the squared circle that has made him stand out from the crowd.
In a recent interview with ESPN, Cassidy revealed that AEW’s vice presidents The Young Bucks, insisted on his joining the budding promotion. In time, Tony Khan, the president of AEW, would also come around the gimmick, that has brought several eyes to the promotion.

“The Young Bucks were the people that were like, ‘We need to get Orange here,'” Orange Cassidy said. “Because my character is a giant middle finger to professional wrestling, so they were like, ‘Of course, let’s get him in.'”
Khan was also all praise for his new star, whom he lavished praise on.
“[After Double or Nothing,] I spent a lot of time with Orange Cassidy and got to know him a lot better, and also talked to him about ideas, and that opened a lot of doors for both of us,” Khan revealed. “I had no idea what an intelligent person Orange Cassidy is, and he is very, very smart. And really, I had no idea how well-thought-out this all was.”
“He’s multitalented, he’s a team player, he’s tried to make other people look good as much as possible, and the most important thing above all else is his work is phenomenal. He’s a great wrestler.”
Cassidy’s laidback approach has caught the wrestling world by storm. To watch a man pull off some of the most athletic manoeuvres without taking his hands off his pocket; as if he was too bothered to do what he was so good at is certainly a unique experience.
There’s a reason he was the most cheered wrestler in the ring despite the presence of Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho. The Wrestling community has never seen a wrestler like him before. People may love or hate him but he certainly has their attention.
