It’s been almost three months since Big Cass, real name William Morrissey, was surprisingly released from the WWE two days after Money In The Bank on June 19th. There’s been tons of talk about what led to him reportedly being fired by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon during a meeting at SmackDown Live (read about that here), but the big man has remained quiet about the situation while he’s under a 90-day no compete clause.
With that clause running up soon, Cass, who is going by Big C now, will be appearing for Big Time Wrestling on September 21st. He was also recently a guest on Heated Conversations with Booker T and finally discussed what led to his WWE release:
“If I’m going to be honest with you, I made a lot of mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes in a very short period of time. I did some things that I shouldn’t have done. I guess the company couldn’t rely on me and couldn’t trust me. Look, I’ll just be honest with you, in my opinion, they made the right decision for them. It was the right decision to get rid of me at that point in time…not to say I won’t be back, but at that point in time they definitely made the right decision for them. To be honest with you, looking at it they made the right decision for me. Everyone makes mistakes, but when you make that many mistakes in that short of a period of time then you lose people’s trust and you’re not reliable anymore.”
Cass also spoke about his future plans in wrestling:
“Here’s the thing…I started with Johnny Rodz at his school when I was very young. I never really got to see what was out there. About a year into my training I got a call from WWE and they signed me. I got signed right away to FCW, so my whole career has been pretty much in FCW and NXT, but I never really got to see what else is out there. There’s a whole world out there right now. I just want to get out there and see what else is going on, but I will be back. Obviously the goal is to get back to WWE.”
