Tommy Dreamer, a legend in the world of professional wrestling and particularly in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), has recently elevated AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy to the same level as wrestling icons Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli, and Kazuchika Okada.

Speaking on "Busted Open Radio," Dreamer commended Cassidy for his remarkable performance on the recent episode of "AEW Dynamite," where he faced off against the three technical wrestling greats. "Anyone who's ever doubted Orange Cassidy needs to reconsider," Dreamer asserted.

"He consistently delivers a top-notch performance and has masterfully turned what many considered a gimmick into an enduring persona. Gimmicks are ephemeral, but a talented wrestler transcends that. Orange Cassidy's in-ring work has been nothing short of sensational since he joined AEW, proving he's a cornerstone talent for the promotion.

He fully deserves to be in the same conversation with the likes of Danielson, Castagnoli, and Okada."

Cassidy's Title Journey

Initially seen as a comedic sideshow, Orange Cassidy has defied expectations and turned skeptics into believers.

He seized the All-Atlantic Championship from PAC last year, rebranding it as the AEW International Championship. Cassidy's 326-day reign came to an end at the hands of Jon Moxley in last month's All Out pay-per-view, marking his first main-event appearance on such a stage.

However, Cassidy quickly rebounded, recapturing his title in a thrilling match against Rey Fenix. Dreamer pointed to Cassidy's signature "lazy, falling-asleep elbow" as evidence of a gimmick evolving into an iconic wrestling move.

"If you understand the AEW product, you understand Orange Cassidy's contributions," Dreamer added. "He has not just entertained but also exhibited a wrestling acumen that places him alongside the sport's elite." Cassidy's ability to pivot from comic relief to a serious contender has not only solidified his career but has also bolstered AEW's roster.

With Tommy Dreamer's endorsement, it's clear that Orange Cassidy's star is not just rising—it's already high in the wrestling firmament. This validation from an industry stalwart like Dreamer may just be the tip of the iceberg for Cassidy's rapidly ascending career.

For those tracking wrestling news on platforms like MSN and Google News, keep an eye out: Orange Cassidy's name is one that you'll likely see making headlines, and for good reason.
