According to PW Insider, Big Cass was the cause of a controversial backstage incident at last night’s WrestlePro event in Rahway New Jersey, which was the final show for owner Pat Buck, who was recently signed to WWE as a producer. Reports are that Cass, who was an unadvertised surprise in a battle royal matchup booked for the show, confronted AEW star Joey Janela. The heated argument, possibly stemming from Janela’s issues with Enzo Amore at a Blink 182 concert, eventually forced the two men to be separated, with Cass remaining hot and confrontational with the rest of the locker room.
Cass was later parading around the locker room and claiming that someone had stolen his property, even accusing the show’s headliners SCU and Pat Buck. Cass then spat in Buck’s face. Buck responded by decking Cass with a right hand that dropped the former WWE star, and immediately changing his demeanor from aggressive to questioning why he was hit. Local police were then summoned to escort Cass from the building, with Buck continuing on to work his farewell show.
It didn’t end there. Cass remained outside the venue, shouting remarks that caused the police to search his car. Apparently the remarks he was making were cause for concern, and they called an ambulance for Cass to be taken to the local hospital. The consensus from most of the talent on site has labeled Cass as a troublemaker, with little to no locker room sympathy or support based on his actions. He is not expected to be booked again for the promotion.
