AEW superstar Orange Cassidy recently appeared on the Absolute Geek podcast to discuss a wide range of topics, including his thoughts on his Forbidden Door matchup against Will Ospreay, a contest he admits he tried “a little” harder than usual for. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
On his shoulder separation:
“Well, I was hurt for a very long time. I had a type III AC separation in my left shoulder, and it hurt real bad, so I couldn’t really wrestle for a while. Then it’s like okay, and I decided to come back and wrestle Will Ospreay. I tried a little harder than I usually do in that match, especially because I, I don’t know. I don’t need to prove anything to anybody, but I know I can.”
Talks his match with Will Ospreay at Forbidden Door:
“Every now and then, I like to show everybody and remind everybody what I can do when I feel like it. I have that luxury to just turn it on when I want to. I think I’m the only person that’s like 16 breakout matches because I get that every single time I have a wrestling match. It’s like people forgot, so I just wanted to remind everybody this is who Orange Cassidy was, and I think I was able to do that. I would have liked to win, but he’s pretty good.”
