To the surprise of many in the internet wrestling community, WWE announced that they have released Big Cass from the company.
It is unclear as to why Big Cass (William Morrissey) was released from the company, however it is worth noting that there have been recent reports that claim he was in the doghouse behind-the-scenes recently.
According to online reports, Cass apparently went off script on live television, going against not only the direction of WWE road agents and producers, but reportedly against the wishes of Vince McMahon himself.
WWE posted the following brief statement confirming the release of Big Cass on Tuesday afternoon. It’s worth noting that they left off the traditional “future endeavors” line in the statement, which could indicate that it was not an amicable parting of the ways.
“WWE has come to terms on the release of William Morrissey (Big Cass).”
