The Undertaker Has “Crazy Similarity” With Orange Cassidy Says AEW Star

Orange Cassidy The Undertaker

Orange Cassidy is one of the most popular stars in AEW but according to Matt Hardy, there’s a certain similarity between the lackadaisical star and wrestling icon The Undertaker.

Speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, the AEW star explained how highly he thinks of International Champion Orange Cassidy:

“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.

“The thing that attracts him to so many fans is the persona. It’s the whole Orange Cassidy shtick. He’s one of the best wrestlers in the industry right now. He has great confidence in knowing what he needs to do — to make the character excel, grow, and connect with people.”

Matt Hardy then went on to explain why he thinks there’s a “crazy similarity” between Orange Cassidy and WWE Hall of Famer and multiple-time world champion, The Undertaker:

“In some ways, Orange Cassidy to Tony [Khan], at this stage right now, reminds me of the relationship between Vince McMahon and The Undertaker. [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.”

The Undertaker hung up his boots back in 2020 but he recently commented on how he felt he should have been in the ring at WrestleMania 39.
