In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio to promote tonight’s AEW All Out pay-per-view, former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho discussed how he initially thought the company signing Orange Cassidy to a deal was a joke.

“We make stars in AEW, Orange is a guy that when I first saw him and heard about him, I wasn’t happy about it, I thought it was a joke, I wasn’t impressed. Then, when I pulled my head our of my rear end, I realized that this guy is over, it doesn’t matter why, he is doing something different, he is unique, the people love him for it, so what’s the problem.

As I started watching him and studying him as a performer and understanding his gimmick, it was a no-brainer for me and I wanted to do something with him.”
