Road Dogg says he doesn’t understand Orange Cassidy’s character in AEW.
On a recent edition of his “Oh… You Didn’t Know” podcast, WWE’s SVP of Live Events shared his thoughts on Cassidy’s character and his lack of understanding as to why the gimmick is so over these days.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On not understanding the love of Cassidy’s character: “I liked his gimmick when he was Fonzie… I don’t get it [as it stands now]. If the guy can work great, and I’ve seen him work and he’s pretty great, so I don’t understand. And if the answer is ‘because you’re old,’ I get that, but that’s a copout answer because you don’t understand either.”
On Cassidy’s divisiveness as a character: “If you do like him then all that stupid crap he does makes sense and you love it. But if you don’t, you can’t get past it. I know I’m in the minority and I’ve got no problem doing that, but I’m allowed to have my own goddarned sense about things and opinions.”
