Big Cass

As previously reported, former WWE Superstar Big Cass (aka CaZXL) was said to have been involved in a backstage incident over the weekend at a WrestlePro event in Rahway, New Jersey. He reportedly had an altercation with Joey Janela and later Pat Buck. According to the earlier report, Buck defended himself and punched Cass and knocked him out. Cass has now come out with a full statement and apology on what happened.

Cass issued a statement online through his friend and former tag team partner nZo (formerly known as Enzo Amore) via Twitter. You can read his full statement below.

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
