Big Cass Explains Why He's Going By W Morrissey, Taking Inspiration From Kevin Nash And Scott Hall

W Morrissey has made quite the impact in IMPACT Wrestling, leading Violent By Design to victory at Rebellion and defeating Willie Mack at Under Siege.

Morrissey is the former Big Cass or CazXL, who changed his name to signify a fresh start in a new company.

"It’s day one of me making it to the top of professional wrestling on my own with a healthy mindset, being sober and happy and healthy – and it was a brand new start. I didn’t want anything associated with what I used to do or who I used to be getting in the way of this new journey, so anything that I used to do went out the window, including gear, the look, everything. I wanted a fresh start, and I thought coming back as a heel… When Scott Hall and Kevin Nash showed up at WCW, I thought that was really cool using their real names but, for a heel, just having me abbreviate my first name instead of saying it – I thought that that was pretty, pretty arrogant. So the day of is when I decided, or we decided, that we were going to be W Morrissey instead," Morrissey told Gary Cassidy of Inside The Ropes.

Morrissey returned to wrestling in February at Lariato after leaving the business in September 2019 to battle his alcohol addiction by going to rehab. You can find his full comments on his return by clicking here.
