    Not a fan of Orange Cassidy.
    Stupid freaking gimmick.

    I'd like to see Miz girl bitch slap him!

      I’m all for wrestling being whatever the wrestlers want it to be (basically anti-Cornett) and orange Cassidy was funny when I first saw him, but I really have no desire to see him on weekly tv. His gimmick is going to get really old really fast I think.

        TLDR: Orange Cassidy will succeed because people are stupid.

                          When you do what you do to a sport i no longer care. Really its just like nfl and others, how they have treated the sport. Soon everywhere will be the same. Its all a show and all entertainment.

                              Thx for doing this video Simon. OC's gimmick works because the fans put it over chanting holy s word when he's throwing limp kicks!

                                    My take away from this video is that people want to see Orange Cassidy launched out of a Salmon tube.

                                      But Jim cornette doesn't like him.

                                        I like it because not all facets of wrestling need to be serious. Even a staunch supporter against new wrestling, Jim Cornette had to have seen how silly his Momma's Boy character was in comparison to all the serious shit.

                                          He'll be over with morons and the vast majority will turn that nonsense off. They haven't got a clue what they're doing.

                                              I like AEW they are going to do great but orange Cassidy is a joke to wrestling hands in his pocket wrestling is dumb as hell

                                                      Let's see how long this gimmick lasts on weekly television.

                                                        umm do you not remember jesse and festus? luke gallows lasted as festus on wwe tv with a very similar gimmick, pretty docile until he heard the bell then would flip.

                                                      Simon, my inner Jim cornette is wanting to explode on you. But I never thought of it that way. Okay man, you swerved me. You should do more of these segments for all of AEW signings.

                                                        Jim Ross will definitely not get Cassidy. I love Orange Cassidy, but I fear for what JR’s commentary will do to him. At least I can count on Excalibur to sell the hell out of Cassidy on commentary.
