• Former WWE Star Big Cass Suffers A Seizure (Video)
Former WWE Superstar Big Cass was supposed to have a match at tonight’s House Of Hardcore event, but was pulled as he suffered a seizure while signing autographs in the lobby.
He fell on the floor and the Ambulance was called.
ECW Legend Tommy Dreamer went to the ring to inform fans of the sad news and asked fans to keep Cass in their prayers.
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.

Dreamer said the following in his promo:
“Instead of ‘Indie Darlings’ I should have called this show ‘Anything Can Freakin Happen’.
Please say a prayer for Big Cass who suffered a seizure.
For all of you haters, it is not drug-related.
I have been with him all day. He’s been going through a lot of stuff, hopefully, this will clear up.”
