Some scary news coming out of tonight's House Of Hardcore show.
The 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania played host to tonight's House Of Hardcore show entitled 'Indie Darlings'. Featured on the on-going show was WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray, NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, NWA National Heavyweight Champion Willie Mack, Rich Swann, Angelina Love and Britt Baker among others. Unfortunately a frightening sequence of events occurred as reports from those live in attendance at the show were noting that Big Cass collapsed and suffered a seizure in the lobby where he was taking photos and doing signings

Scary moment going down at the #HouseofHardcore event in Philly right now as former WWE Star Big Cass collapses in the lobby. Doctor attending to him now.— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
Tommy Dreamer and Bubba Ray Dudley are by his side. He looks responsive. Scary stuff.— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
He’s awake, eyes open, looks to be communicating. I’m staying far back to give everyone room, but it’s a positive sign. Send your good vibes to Cass.— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
Ambulance has arrived. Cass still on his back, but again he looks responsive.— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
That was scary. It was intermission at the show, the lobby was packed with people checking out the merch tables. Cass went right down into his face. Fans immediately stepped back to give him room. Doc was called. Kind of chaotic. Dreamer was right by his side.— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
Interested. Dreamer addresses the crowd and says Cass “suffered a seizure,” and makes a point of saying it’s “not drug-related.” pic.twitter.com/ikyj85KamQ— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
Cass loaded into an ambulance. And now we wait for additional info.— David Onda (@David_Onda) December 9, 2018
Fightful was told that Big Cass got up, stood up and was able to walk out. Bully Ray tended to him, and checked on him. We had been told that Cass had gained a lot of weight since his WWE departure and was to enter some sort of program to help "straighten himself up.
Big Cass' former tag team partner Enzo Amore sent his well wishes the big man:
