Big Cass reportedly "doing well" after scary scene over the weekend.
Former WWE star Big Cass is reportedly doing well after suffering a seizure at a House Of Hardcore event this past weekend in Philadelphia.
According to reports, Cass was about to sit down for a meet and greet with fans in the lobby of the event when he collapsed and began convulsing on the floor. At the House Of Hardcore show, Tommy Dreamer addressed the crowd, confirming that Big Cass had suffered a seizure, but made a point to note that it was not drug-related.
Cass was taken to the hospital immediately after the incident occurred, and Dreamer says he is doing O.K.
WWE unexpectedly released Big Cass back in June, just weeks after the 7'0 superstar returned to action from a torn ACL that he suffered last August. At the time, the company said in a brief statement: “WWE has come to terms on the release of William Morrissey (Big Cass).”
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, there were several reasons why WWE terminated his contract, including an incident on SmackDown Live where Cass went against the directive of backstage officials and the head honcho Vince McMahon. In a segment featuring a little person dressed up as fellow superstar Daniel Bryan, Big Cass allegedly went off script by extending the beatdown beyond what was planned.
Per Pro Wrestling Sheet,
"We’re told Cass was directed to be done with the attack after hitting the impersonator with a big boot, but the wrestler asked if he could take it further with a beatdown. Backstage officials said no, but BC felt strongly about doing so and took the issue up with Vince McMahon … who also shot him down."
