Former WWE Star Big Cass made some headlines over the weekend due to an incident at an event of independent wrestling company WrestlePro event in Rahway, NJ.
Cass who was backstage at the show, was reportedly threatening the other talents and at one point he even went after AEW Star Joey Janela. He was described as “aggressive and erratic” by the people who were there.
Since the local police station was in the neighborhood, the officers were called in and the former Champion reportedly left the arena in an ambulance.
Now the former NXT Star has come forward and releasing a statement through his tag team partner Enzo Amore, he claims that he is getting help:
“I have been very honest with my past struggles, and it has been an ongoing battle,” he wrote. “On Saturday night, I obviously let my demons get the better of me and I ruined an important night for a really great guy in an unfortunate series of events. I have worked incredibly hard to get where I am, and even harder to overcome my ongoing battle with depression. But I will work my absolute hardest to right the wrongs of Saturday night and apologize to Kevin Mathews, Pat Buck, Joey Janela, the entire WrestlePro locker room and all parties involved from the bottom of my heart.
“I’m getting help from family and friends as we speak and will be getting professional help in the near future and ask all to please respect my privacy in the meantime. When & if I reemerge as a public figure it will be in good faith and I hope to inspire those who struggle with the same mental health issues I do to seek the help they need. If Tyson Fury can do it….so can I.
“Remember…I ain’t dead yet. And neither are you.
“Peace and love, William Patrick Morrissey III”
