It’s been a while since fans have seen Big Cass on WWE programming, as he was released in 2018 but he seems to be in a much better place now.
Cass recently spoke with Pro Wrestling Sheet about the issues that led to his release, and he opened up about going off script and attacking a little person on an episode of SmackDown when he wasn’t supposed to.
The former WWE Superstar called it the “dumbest f**king thing” he ever did and noted that he was on a self destructive path at that point in time, and not in the best state of mind.
According to Big Cass he had a face to face conversation with Vince McMahon, and it was Vince who informed him he was being released.
“Vince called me in, face-to-face. We had a long talk, it was a great talk. Yeah, we had a very, very good conversation and we left very amicably. I have no bad things to say about that company. Like, they treated me well, they f**king put me in great spots, they did everything for me and I kinda just f**ked them over. And I feel bad about that, and I’m disappointed in myself that I let a lot of people down. Because they put a lot of faith in me, and that company treated me very, very well. It’s just — like I said, there were forces in play that just couldn’t be stopped.”
When asked about a possible return to WWE, Cass indicated that the door is open.
“I do think the door is open. It’s just a matter of what I want to do … It’s tough to say right now [if he would would want to return]. It’s a tough life, man. People don’t realize how tough that lifestyle is. Mentally, right now, I feel like I’m in a good place, I feel like I’m in a very good place to handle that schedule and to handle that life. That’s where I feel like I’m at right now. But I don’t know what I want to do, man. I’m kinda living life right now keeping my options open. There’s plenty of wrestling out to be had there in the world, there’s plenty of other options for entertainment in the world.”
