Matt Hardy also mentioned a bizarre similarity between Orange Cassidy and the WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker. Hardy said that the AEW international champion’s relationship with Tony Khan reminds him of The Undertaker and Vince McMahon.

“In some ways….. Orange Cassidy to Tony, at this stage right now…… reminds me of the relationship between Vince McMahon and The Undertaker……..He was like Vince’s go-to guy, a guy that Vince knew could go out and get the job done. On top of that, those guys were both great wrestlers but played outlandish and over-the-top gimmicks.  So, there’s a crazy similarity there.”, Hardy continued.
