Orange Cassidy explains why he frustrates the AEW graphics department.
For as long as Orange Cassidy has wrestled in AEW, everything about his character has been minimal in effort. This includes when it comes to not only his merchandise but also his entrance, as with a simple white background and doodles, it does not require much thought process behind it.
That being said, it is not without influence from the AEW graphics department, as Orange Cassidy explained while speaking at the AEW Full Gear post show media scrum.
"I drew them. We have a great graphics department, they are incredible, they do incredible work. They get very frustrated with me because I draw stuff and ask them to put it on the screen and they say, ‘Are you sure?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ I feel you should make your own entrance. I make most of my own merch, 95% of them. They’re on my phone, I send them over, I’m in my hotel room and I draw a bunch of stick figures. A lot of them are Fast & Furious inspired of me hanging from a helicopter and jumping out of another car and then running over the car, jumping off the car and over a bridge onto a boat. They couldn’t do that, but they did draw me with stick figures because I thought it would be appropriate for who I am." Cassidy said
Cassidy successfully defended the AEW International Championship at the pay-per-view, pinning Jon Moxley after several Orange Punches.
Elsewhere during the scrum, Cassidy expressed his gratefulness for being able to fight and beat Jon Moxley at the show. You can read more here.
