Big Cass has recalled how he found out that WWE were releasing him from his contract.
Cass was let go by the promotion in June 2018 following a feud with Daniel Bryan, amid reports of behavioural issues backstage.
Now known as CaZXL, the 34-year-old has revealed he was told he was being fired during a meeting with Vince McMahon and the head of talent relations, Mark Carrano, and had expected the decision after 'making a lot of mistakes' during a difficult time in his life.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet, he said: "I had a feeling. I was really acting out and really making a lot of mistakes, in a fairly short amount of time. I definitely expected it.
"I remember the day that I was fired, it was a meeting with Vince. Me, him and (Mark) Carrano were in there for a while and we had a really good conversation. It was more a conversation about… the performance was maybe touched upon for a minute, in terms of Big Cass, but that conversation was mostly about William Morrissey.
"I don’t know why the “future endeavours” wasn’t (included), I don’t look into that. But I thought it was amicable when I left the building that day."
