Orange Cassidy is one of the most popular wrestlers in AEW, but how much money does he make?
The 38-year-old AEW International Champion has become a huge star in AEW since signing in 2019, with his unique, lazy style resonating with the fans.
In this article, we’ll look at his AEW salary, and figure out how much Orange Cassidy makes in AEW, as well as looking at when his contract with the company runs out.
How Much Does Orange Cassidy Make?
Orange Cassidy makes $500,000 per year wrestling for AEW, according to reports. This would put him below the top earners in AEW, with CM Punk and Chris Jericho ($3 million a year each) coming up ahead of him, and with Jon Moxley’s $6 million salary dwarfing them all.
Cassidy came into AEW as an unknown, performing on the independent scene for years without being signed to a major company. Freshly Squeezed was barely known when he debuted at Double or Nothing 2019, but soon commanded a legion of fans.
He signed a deal full-time with the company after his appearance in the Casino Battle Royal and was instantly pushed as one of the most popular wrestlers. He became the top merchandise seller in the company and feuded with top stars like PAC, Chris Jericho and Cody Rhodes, to name but a few.
Orange Cassidy’s salary has not been confirmed by AEW, but reports from 2021 indicate that he is getting paid a $500,000 per year pay packet. While this puts him well below the top stars, he is likely making that much money in T-Shirt sales, being one of the top sellers on ProWrestlingTees.
However, as those reports are from 2021, there’s a good chance he has signed a new deal with the company. Given that his three-year contract with AEW would have expired in 2022, we can assume he has signed a longer, more lucrative deal with Tony Khan in the time being.
If he has signed another three-year contract, then Orange Cassidy will stay in AEW until 2025, or longer. Orange Cassidy’s contract expires in 2025, given he signed a three-year deal in 2022, according to reports.
There were some outlets reporting that his contract expired at the end of 2022 and that he was working without a deal, a la Cody Rhodes the year prior. However, this was false and he had signed a deal to keep him with the company for years after that.
