Joey Janela explains how Big Cass tried to kill him during indie event

Big Cass had suffered a breakdown at an indie wrestling show a while ago and it was a very serious matter. He was definitely not in the right mindset and wanted to fight Joey Janela.



Joey Janela provided a detailed account to the Young Bucks in a YouTube video, of what transpired at the show.

“I went outside for a smoke and I had said ‘Hello’ to the dude earlier and he was like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ I go out for a smoke and he corners me and then smacks me in the head. It wasn’t like a hard smack but it just caught me off guard. I’m like, ‘What the f*ck is going on here?’

“Then he starts chasing me, ‘Joey, I’m’ coming to kill you!’”

“The dude starts chasing me and it’s in the Rahway Rec Center. So it looks like an episode of Tom & Jerry where Big Cass is chasing me around the locker room going, ‘I’m going to shoot you! I’m going to kill you!’”

Everyone in the locker room wondered what was going on and that included Orange Cassidy, who was scheduled to perform in the show. Janela was then put in his own room so that he could work on things and not worry about Big Cass.

“I then looked back in the locker room and I see him opening every door and saying, ‘Bad boy, where are you?’ It was like a horror movie”

“I feel bad because I have friends who had substance abuse problems. One of my best friends overdosed so I feel for him. At the time of it, it was kinda a funny story as this guy tried to kill me and people leaked it on the internet. But the next day I felt like complete sh*t.”

We hope Big Cass will eventually get better and can return to the ring soon enough.
