• Big Cass ‘Pi$$ed Someone Off’ Before Getting Fired From WWE
As we noted yesterday, WWE announced that SmackDown Live Superstar Big Cass has been released from the company. Below is what WWE announced:
Big Cass Released
“WWE has come to terms on the release of William Morrissey (Big Cass).”
It should be noted that WWE didn’t wish Cass well in his future endeavours.
We have the following 3 updates regarding Big Cass’ firing:
1. Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer noted that he heard Big Cass was very ‘moody’ on Sunday at Money In The Bank 2018 and speculated that Cass wasn’t happy about losing to Daniel Bryan once again.
2. WrestleVotes noted that Big Cass ‘pi$$ed someone off’ and this led to his firing.
Asked what happened with Cass. Source is tied up at the moment, however said “Big man pissed someone off, bad”
I also know this happened within the last few hours, not necessarily the “pissing off” but the decision. Not at the PPV as Cass worked the house show last night.

3. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported that Vince McMahon called a meeting on Tuesday before SmackDown Live and fired Big Cass.
Big Cass became a singles competitor last year and then suffered a knee injury. Cass returned to WWE programming after WrestleMania 34 on SmackDown Live and immediately went after Daniel Bryan.
Cass faced Bryan at Backlash & Money In The Bank and tapped out to Bryan in both matches.
The highlight of Cass’ last run in WWE (which was after WrestleMania 34) was Cass being the final man eliminated from the 50 man Greatest Royal Rumble match.
