• Former WWE Star Explains Why He Got Fired
During a recent appearance on Booker T’s Heated Conversations podcast, former WWE Superstar Big Cass talked about why he got fired from WWE.
Cass noted how he made a lot of mistakes in a short period of time and that he would have fired himself too if he was Vince McMahon.
Below is what Cass said (credit to Wrestlinginc for transcription):
“I’m doing good, just living my life right now. Hitting the gym, waiting for my 90-day [no compete clause] to end. Anticipating what’s next on my schedule, trying to get myself in the best shape possible. Just living life, I don’t know how else to say it.
If I’m going to be honest with you, I made a lot of mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes in a very short period of time. I did some things that I shouldn’t have done. I guess the company couldn’t rely on me and couldn’t trust me. Look, I’ll just be honest with you, in my opinion, they made the right decision for them.
It was the right decision to get rid of me at that point in time – not to say I won’t be back – but at that point in time they definitely made the right decision for them. To be honest with you, looking at it they made the right decision for me. Everyone makes mistakes, but when you make that many mistakes in that short of a period of time then you lose people’s trust and you’re not reliable anymore.
Yeah, I would have, [fired myself]. I definitely would have fired myself. If I was in Vince McMahon’s position, I would have fired myself for sure, one-hundred percent.”
