W. Morrissey (formerly Big Cass in WWE) got into an altercation with Joey Janela in 2019 that was part of a downward spiral for Morrissey due to addiction.
At WrestlePro event in September 2019, Morrissey chased Janela around the locker room, threatening to kill him. The situation was resolved by Pat Buck, who punched him before Morrissey was removed by authorities.
Morrissey would end up going to rehab before returning to wrestling in February.
Speaking on Sean's Waltman's Pro Wrestling 4 Life, Morrissey discussed making amends with those he hurt.
"I could easily talk the talk, but it's walking the walk. The best amends you can make is living a healthy and fulfilling life. That's when people really believe, especially those that you have really hurt. Family members who were close to the situation. An apology doesn't mean as much to them as me getting better and healthier. That's what they love to see and that's why the amends process takes a while," he said.
When asked if he's made amends with Janela, Morrissey replied, "I spoke to Joey the weekend of WrestleMania at GCW. I did a show and spoke to Joey. We're really cool. We buried the hatchet. That was one that I genuinely needed to apologize to the guy in person. I like to do things face-to-face and was looking forward to going to the show. I didn't know if he was going to be there. I know he's associated (with GCW) and was hoping he would be there. I happened to walk in and we started talking right away. I was super happy about that. He's as cool as can be and I appreciate him being super understanding."
Morrissey made an appearance at VxS Lucid Dreams during WrestleMania weekend.
