As was previously reported, WWE has released SmackDown Live Superstar Big Cass, also formerly known as Colin Cassady, from his contract.
Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, as well as the WrestleVotes Twitter account, posted the following update about the situation on Twitter:
I knew more punishment was coming, didn't know he was being released. https://t.co/SCAz8AVEUf— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) June 19, 2018
This was not a planned part of many releases. It is what everyone thinks it is. https://t.co/L5ZVEyC1i6— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) June 19, 2018
Only new info is Vince called a meeting at Smackdown today and fired Cass.— Bryan Alvarez (@bryanalvarez) June 19, 2018
Asked what happened with Cass. Source is tied up at the moment, however said “Big man pissed someone off, bad”— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) June 19, 2018
I also know this happened within the last few hours, not necessarily the “pissing off” but the decision. Not at the PPV as Cass worked the house show last night.
