"Big Cazz" Scheduled For His First Wrestling Appearance Since Being Released From WWE

He will now be known as "Big Cazz".

Two days after WWE's 'Money In The Bank' PPV, William Morrissey or better known as "Big Cass" was released from his WWE contract. Cass spent seven total years in the WWE with five of those years being spent in WWE's then-developmental program FCW which was later converted into NXT where Cass was a part of a trio with his former girlfriend, the current SmackDown Live Women's Champion and Enzo Amore.

Cass and Enzo moved up to the main roster the night after WrestleMania 32 and after one year of teaming together on the main roster, the duo split up and Enzo went on to become a two-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion and Cass had a setback--tearing his ACL during a match with Enzo which kept the big man out for eight months. Cass returned to WWE television after WrestleMania 34 and began a program with Daniel Bryan and after only two months back on the road, Cass was released from WWE five months after Enzo Amore was released from the company

In an article published here on Fightful by our very own Sean Ross Sapp, it was noted that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon called for a meeting with Big Cass in Toledo where SmackDown was being held on that June 19th day. The meeting was reportedly held so early that most did not see Big Cass in the area. Rumors have made the rounds over the past year concerning Big Cass having rubbed people the wrong way and on-top of that there were recent happenings that led to his release from the company. Big Cass has remained silent on social media since his departure but he has been scheduled for his first wrestling appearance post-WWE with the 'Big Time Wrestling' promotion on September 21st in South Carolina.


Also appearing on that show is Tenille Dashwood who was released from WWE this past October and James Ellsworth who was released from his contract in November, brought back to the company and was written off of television two weeks ago as he was working without a contract. Big Cass will now be working under the name "Big Cazz" as he embarks on his journey post-WWE.
