Fans around the world were shocked when Big Cass was released from his WWE contract a few months ago.
In the weeks leading up to his release, it was reported that Cass had defied orders and gone off script during a segment on SmackDown Live, and the former WWE Superstar recently opened up about his release while talking about his WWE run on Booker T’s Heated Conversations podcast.
According to Cass, he made a lot of mistakes while he was with WWE, and he seems to agree that WWE officials made the right call when they released him.
“If I’m going to be honest with you, I made a lot of mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes in a very short period of time,” Cass admitted. “I did some things that I shouldn’t have done. I guess the company couldn’t rely on me and couldn’t trust me. Look, I’ll just be honest with you, in my opinion, they made the right decision for them. It was the right decision to get rid of me at that point in time – not to say I won’t be back – but at that point in time they definitely made the right decision for them. To be honest with you, looking at it they made the right decision for me. Everyone makes mistakes, but when you make that many mistakes in that short of a period of time then you lose people’s trust and you’re not reliable anymore.”
Cass went on to say that if he were in Vince McMahon’s shoes, he would have released himself “one hundred percent.”
Now that he’s no longer under WWE contract, Cass will be returning to the indie scene when his no compete clause runs out, but he admitted that the indie scene isn’t exactly something he’s familiar with.
“I never really got to see what was out there. About a year into my training I got a call from WWE and they signed me. I got signed right away to FCW, so my whole career has been pretty much in FCW and NXT. But I never really got to see what else is out there. There’s a whole world out there right now. I just want to get out there and see what else is going on, but I will be back, obviously the goal is to get back to WWE.”
