Cody Talks AEW Being Careful Handling Orange Cassidy’s Push

Orange Cassidy is one of not only AEW’s, but pro wrestling’s most unique, yet entertaining talents. There are those in the industry who think that Orange Cassidy is a joke and makes a mockery out of pro wrestling, but there are those who love his gimmick and his character and even call it entertaining.

One of those people who love his gimmick and his character is none other than Cody Rhodes, who recently was a guest on Busted Open Radio, where he spoke about AEW’s plans for Orange Cassidy.

This is what Cody Rhodes said:

“The Orange Cassidy fandom and hysteria – which is beautiful and funny and everything to see – it’s definitely something we’re gonna expand upon. The one thing I wanna avoid is people almost taking advantage of the fandom – and this is a weird outlook on it – but I think you know what I mean.”

There are instances in pro wrestling where when a talent hasn’t been utilized as much, but leaves a little something for the fans, they become popular and hot, but when that talent is utilized more and more, their popularity and their fan reaction tends to die down. Cody Rhodes says that he doesn’t want that to happen with Orange Cassidy.

This is what Cody Rhodes said:

“There have been things that happen organically and properly that have gotten over. Things that the fans themselves chose to love and somebody clings to it and rubs up to it and kinda dilutes your favorite band a little bit. That’s the navigation that has to be done with Orange Cassidy.” “He has to continue to take a bigger spotlight because there is so much more. The individual, Orange Cassidy, can go bell-to-bell and when he goes, it’s gonna be a really special night.

“I love it up to this point. I know that Matt Jackson and Dana Massie have actively tried to hone in on merchandising because the fans want Orange Cassidy t-shirts and Orange Cassidy outfits – the No. 1 outfit you see in the crowd. So, we’re gonna do everything we can to take care of Orange Cassidy.”
