Danhausen Discusses How He And Orange Cassidy Bring New Fans Into Wrestling In Out Of Character Interview
Danhausen believes he and Orange Cassidy bring in more fans to pro wrestling due to their goofy antics.
In a rare out-of-character interview on HardLore, Danhausen discussed how he and Orange Cassidy have helped create new fans with their personas.
“I feel me and Orange Cassidy are the ‘go to’ people for people to complain about when people don’t like, ‘Oh, this is too goofy for wrestling.’ Also, we’re the two people I always hear, ‘Oh, my friends don’t like wrestling, but they love you two,’ and now they watch, or ‘Oh, I wasn’t really watching, but I saw you two, so I started.’ It’s a testament to, we’re creating new fans, which is what you should be doing as a wrestler. That’s exactly what all of our jobs should be and I feel only a handful of people are actually doing that. Whenever anyone comes up to me, it’s multiple people every single line I do a meet & greet, ‘I never watched wrestling, but I found you on YouTube.’ Great, that means I’m creating new fans who haven’t watched people like Dante Martin, who is a tremendous athlete. Now they’re watching him like, ‘Oh, this weird guy got me into this and now I can see Bryan Danielson, Dante Martin, Jade Cargill,'”Danhausen to Hardlore
Danhausen and Orange Cassidy have been common faces on AEW programming for quite some time, remaining two of the most over stars in AEW regardless of their win loss record in the promotion.
