WWE Release Big Cass

The loss to Daniel Bryan at Money in the Bank 2018 is the last we'll see of him...

WWE have released SmackDown Live Superstar Big Cass. In a shortly worded statement on their website, the company simply said: "WWE has come to terms on the release of William Morrissey (Big Cass)."

While the reason for the release isn't apparent at the time of writing, the news will come as a shock to many fans as the 7-footer was in the midst of a high profile feud with former SmackDown General Manager, Daniel Bryan. The pair faced-off for the second time at Money in the Bank on Sunday, with Bryan making Cass tap for the second pay per view in a row - their first meeting took place at Backlash in May.

Making his main roster debut the night after WrestleMania 32 alongside Enzo Amore, Cass was part of one of WWE's more popular acts. However, after failing to win tag team championship gold as part of the team, Cass turned on Enzo following a mysterious attacker angle. After weeks of speculation, Cass was eventually revealed to be the one to have initially attacked Enzo, setting the pair off on a storyline that would come to an abrupt conclusion thanks to a torn ACL in Cass' knee.

After eight months out Cass returned at the 2018 Superstar Shake-Up, moving to SmackDown Live. He attacked Daniel Bryan backstage soon after, setting the pair off on the feud that looked like continuing after Sunday.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Cass upset backstage personnel within WWE after disobeying orders in a segment involving a little person.
