A backstage incident with former WWE star Big Cass marred last night’s WrestlePro farewell for owner Pat Buck, who was officially wrestling his last match for the promotion after signing on with World Wrestling Entertaining as a Producer.

PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources that were present that Cass, who was booked as an unadvertised surprise to appear in a battle royal, was acting “aggressive and erratic” backstage over the course of the evening, leading to several incidents and finally, his expulsion from the Rahway Rec Center in Rahway, NJ.

At one point, Cass confronted AEW star Joey Janela in a threatening manner, looking for a physical confrontation, apparently stemming from Janela’s run-in several months back with Enzo Amore at a Blink 182 concert in New Jersey.  One source believed Cass slapped Janela, but we were not able to confirm that.  The irony over the situation, we are told, is that Cass and Janela had been in the same locker room the night before for Northeast Wrestling and there had been zero issues at all.

Cass was approached by WrestlePro’s Kevin Matthews, who defused the situation for the moment.   Cass continued to be loud and belligerent towards Janela to the point that Dan Maff warned WrestlePro that if Cass wasn’t calmed down, he was going to have to step in and handle the situation himself.  Maff is known for being an extreme professional backstage, so that he even intimated he was at the point he wanted to take care of the situation was a huge sign Cass was in the wrong.   WrestlePro later had Maff and Janela, who were wrestling on the show, moved to a private room so they could call their match without distraction and to keep Cass separated from them.

However, Cass’ behavior didn’t stop there as he, according to four different sources, made his way through the locker room accusing several of stealing a sweater he owned and began threatening that he was going to “take care” of the entire locker room, insinuating he was going to beat people up.

This continued until Cass ended up in a smaller backstage room with AEW stars SCU and Pat Buck, who were in the middle of putting together their main event match for the event.  Cass began accusing everyone in the room of stealing his belongings and acting in a threatening manner, threatening to fight them.  He then turned to Buck, who was sitting and said, “What are you going to do, tough guy?” and spit in Buck’s face.
Buck, with no recourse as he was backed against a wall, punched Cass and took him down with that one punch.  Buck then grabbed Cass and controlled him on the floor as other wrestlers stormed in and pulled Cass out of the room.  We are told that the second Cass was down on the floor, his entire demeanor changed as he went from aggressive and threatening to questioning why he was hit and asking what was going on.

Local police who were in the building (the Rahway police station is next door to the Rahway Rec Center so whenever there is a wrestling show, there are tons of on duty and off duty officers who stop by to visit) were asked by WrestlePro to escort Cass from the building.  Cass was removed and Buck’s farewell went on as planned. 

The consensus in the locker room that Cass was completely unprofessional, especially given the fact that he was being given a chance by the promotion to come work as he was trying to redeem himself in the business.  Some were so angry over the situation that there was a belief that had Cass remained in the locker room, there were wrestlers who were willing to physically throw him out (or worse) themselves but they were trying to be professional with someone who wasn't being professional at all.

There was a lot of sympathy for Buck given what tonight meant to him personally and because he was placed in a situation where he had zero choice but to defend himself against someone much bigger that was disrespecting the locker room.  Obviously, Cass won't be booked again by the promotion.

PWInsider.com was later told by several fans that even after being ejected, Cass remained outside the venue after WrestlePro's event ended and at one point, it appeared local police were searching his car.  Cass sat down on the sidewalk and according to three different fans we heard from, began loudly making remarks about himself to the point that concerned authorities called for an ambulance to take Cass to transport him to a local hospital:

Joey Janela took to Twitter to comment on the Big Caas incident last night at WrestlePro in New Jersey:


Bad Boy Joey Janela

@JANELABABY

Not gonna elaborate at all on this whole deal besides that it was probably the bizzare situation I’ve ever seen let alone been a part of in a wrestling locker room in 15 years, everything was cordial and friendly Friday and I hope the dude gets back on the right track...

Janela and Enzo went to a blink 182 concert together?

It goes to show how PC locker rooms have become that this guy wasn’t just obliterated. I know Dan Maff from locker rooms 15 years ago, and back then there would’ve been no warning and no escalation. Cass would’ve been unconscious within the first 10 minutes.
Also I thought Cass and Enzo weren’t friends anymore?  I know they’ve had to work together for business a couple of times since. Speaking of which, since they never worked for ROH or NJPW, what the hell was the point of that MSG run-in?

The MSG angle was probably supposed to lead to something else, but then whatever that was didn't happen. It can't be said whether that's due to money issues with one or both of Enzo and Big Cass, their behavior or due to the fans generally not liking the presence of either. It could be a combination of some or all of that.

CasXL has released a statement over the WrestlePro incident:

To my fans & all concerned,

I have been very honest with my past struggles, and it has been an ongoing battle. On Saturday night, I obviously let my demons get the better of me and I ruined an important night for a really great guy in an unfortunate series of events. I have worked incredibly hard to get where I am, and even harder to overcome my ongoing battle with depression. But I will work my absolute hardest to right the wrongs of Saturday night and apologize to Kevin Mathews, Pat Buck, Joey Janela, the entire WrestlePro locker room and all parties involved from the bottom of my heart. I'm getting help from family and friends as we speak and will be getting professional help in the near future and ask all to please respect my privacy in the meantime. When & if I reemerge as a public figure it will be in good faith and I hope to inspire those who struggle with the same mental health issues I do to seek the help they need. If Tyson Fury can do it....so can I. Remember...I ain't dead yet. And neither are you.

Peace and love, William Patrick Morrissey III —"

I'm glad he accepted responsibility and I hope he gets the help he needs.  You can't battle mental illness on your own, so it's good that he's going to seek professional help now.  He needs to step away from wrestling for a few months and get his head on straight.

The season premier of “Total Divas” aired this week with Carmella back in the cast and they buried Cass hard, portraying him as emotionally abusive and irrationally jealous. Then they teased a lesbian relationship between Carmella and Sonya as a publicity stunt.

DDP has announced that he has been working with Big Cass on his recovery. He’s in rehab right now and DDP has a program mapped out for him upon his release. He said Cass is battling depression as well as addiction but is in a much better place now than he was a few weeks ago.

His career may be over, but if he gets sober, I believe he still has a lot to offer the business.

WWE always looks after their own in the end. Hopefully DDP can get Cass back on the straight and narrow, and I think HHH will give Cass a job at the Performance Center teaching the trainees how to be tall.

Big Cass has talent beyond him being tall. He just has alcohol and bi-polar issues. He still has potential to be a draw.
