Update on Big Cass’ firing

Big Cass

We noted before how WWE unexpectedly released the former NXT Star Big Cass after his loss to Daniel Bryan at the Money In The Bank PPV Sunday night.

A notable thing about his release was that the statement the company sent out was even shorter than usual and it didn’t include the customary lines wishing Cass best of luck for his future endeavors.

While the reason for such harsh and sudden release is not known so far, Wrestling Observer has now provided some update on his departure.

According to it, Mr. McMahon called a backstage meeting on SmackDown this week involving Cass and some other Officials and the decision to let him go was made there.

WrestleVotes twitter account also provided an update on the situation through a tweet, claiming that the Big man ‘pissed someone off, bad’ and confirmed that the decision was made not very long ago:

We’ll be covering this story thoroughly and have more details on the site as they become available. Though the question, for now, is who could be the person Cass upset which led to his firing?

    Now word is he was drinking heavily in Europe and was drunk in public. Almost sounds like he was given the choice to go to rehab on the company dime or get fired.
