Lol at the title to this episode, here you go the road to Bridgeport

I also love Orange Cassidy. The gimmick of wrestling with his hands in his pocket like he doesn’t give a shit is excellent. I would love to see a more serious promo leading to a more serious match where his opponent would say “Take your hands off your pocket, punk !” and he would answer “Make me !” and the whole point of the match would be : what will it take for cassidy to fight seriously and take his hands off his pockets ? And you would have a big pop when he finally takes his hands off his pockets.

I feel like that story works better if the reason he keeps his hands in his pockets is because he is so good he doesn’t need them. If he just doesn’t care how do you make him take his hands out?
