Orange Cassidy responds to fans who say he insults wrestling with his character.
Speaking on Casual Conversations with The Wrestling Classic, Cassidy was asked about his match with Katsuyori Shibata.
“There are a lot of people that don’t care for me, that don’t care about what I’m doing. They don’t like what I’m doing, they don’t appreciate it. They think I’m insulting professional wrestling or whatever you want to call it. Then there is a living legend and a phenomenal professional wrestling in Shibata. He said he wanted, on his return, because he actually almost died doing what he does in the ring, and when he came back and was able to wrestle, he mentioned two people. One of them was Bryan Danielson, and the other one was me. I don’t think people understand that, but I never thought that a person of that stature would even consider me for something like that, and it was truly an honor. I barely beat him. I mean, I was terrified because he is Shibata. But because of that, Shibata and I actually played roulette last night, so we’re friends,”Orange Cassidy
Cassidy will look to defend his AEW International Championship this Sunday at AEW Double Or Nothing in a Blackjack Battle Royale.
