PPW Management has learned that Big Cass has pulled out of our event and will not be appearing at PPW 6 on September 21, 2019 in Hazleton, Pennsylvania.
This news comes on the heels of last weekend's altercation with Joey Janela (as well as others) in the Wrestle Pro locker room which saw Cass have to be removed by police at the show.
Big Cass' friend Enzo Amore (who will be appearing as scheduled this weekend) took to Instagram to share a message Cass had sent him to post to the public.
“A letter from my best friend @thecazxl ...... '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 — '“
We here at PPW Wrestling wish Big Cass the absolute best in his road to recovery in both his personal and professional life.
