Last updated

James Cipperly, better known by his ring name Orange Cassidy, has become a fan-favourite wrestler in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) since his debut in 2019. Known for his “whatever” attitude and unique in-ring style, Orange Cassidy has an aura that’s hard to ignore’‹’‹’‹’‹.

Part of his distinctive character is his entrance theme song, which has undergone an interesting evolution in recent years.

Up until March 2021, Cassidy walked his way to the ring to The Pixies’ song “Where is My Mind?” This particular song became synonymous with his laid-back, nonchalant character that has been well-received by fans.

However, news surfaced in mid-2021 that Orange Cassidy would be getting a new theme song in AEW, one that those who watched him compete on the independent circuit are familiar with’‹3’‹.

The Introduction of “Jane”

The new theme song was revealed to be “Jane” by rock band Jefferson Starship. AEW President Tony Khan noted that he did inquire with Jefferson Starship about getting the license to use the song. Initially, the band didn’t reply, but they later gave their consent for the song to be used as Orange Cassidy’s entrance music’‹.

Although AEW was hopeful to debut the song at the Forbidden Door event in June 2021, they only managed to secure “about 95 percent” of the licensing in time.

The song was not used for Cassidy’s entrance at this event’‹’‹. However, just a few days later, on June 29, Cassidy officially debuted “Jane” as his entrance theme on an episode of Dynamite.

It was a big moment for fans who have followed Cassidy’s career, from his days as Fire Ant in Chikara to his current role in AEW’‹’‹.

Conclusion: The Impact of the Orange Cassidy Theme Song

The theme song of a wrestler is an integral part of their character and persona. It sets the tone for their entrance and can often reflect their personality or in-ring style.

In the case of Orange Cassidy, “Jane” by Jefferson Starship is more than just a song – it’s a symbol of his unique wrestling character and a nod to his journey in the wrestling world.

Born and raised in Stewartsville, New Jersey, Cassidy has gone from wrestling on the independent circuit to being the inaugural and current AEW International Champion. His theme song, like his career, has evolved and developed over time, becoming an iconic part of his performance in AEW’‹’‹.
