Danhausen discusses him & Orange Cassidy creating new fans
Very nice, very evil, and certainly unique, Danhausen is certainly a divisive figure in the wrestling world, with many appreciating him for his comedic chops and odd character, whilst others simply ‘don’t get’ Danhausen.
When Danhausen signed for AEW in 2022, someAEW talents like JR didn’t understand Danhausen’s appeal, but in a rare out-of-character interview with Hardlore, Danhausen believes characters like himself and Orange Cassidy help create new fans: "I feel me and Orange Cassidy are the 'go to' people for people to complain about when people don't like, 'Oh, this is too goofy for wrestling.' Also, we're the two people I always hear, 'Oh, my friends don't like wrestling, but they love you two,' and now they watch, or 'Oh, I wasn't really watching, but I saw you two, so I started.' It's a testament to, we're creating new fans, which is what you should be doing as a wrestler. That's exactly what all of our jobs should be and I feel only a handful of people are actually doing that. “Whenever anyone comes up to me, it's multiple people every single line I do a meet & greet, 'I never watched wrestling, but I found you on YouTube.' Great, that means I'm creating new fans who haven't watched people like Dante Martin, who is a tremendous athlete. Now they're watching him like, 'Oh, this weird guy got me into this and now I can see Bryan Danielson, Dante Martin, Jade Cargill,’" said Danhausen.
