How Smackdown superstar Big Cass got fired after Money in the Bank

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet further reported that Cass' excessive drinking were not the only reason he found himself in the doghouse. Sports Illustrated's Justin Barrasso reports that Cass's release was mostly due to "personal conduct issues".

Big Cass was unceremoniously let go by WWE yesterday afternoon, with few hints from the company as to why. The fact that the message from WWE above is short and to the point and not even wishing him luck in the future is likely a good indication that this was not a pleasant parting of the ways. When he was shot down by the producers backstage, he took the issue to Vince McMahon who also told him no. Apparently, Cass got stuck in the bathroom because the lock was broken.

Big Cass' release means both he and Amore are free agents, as Enzo was released from his contract in January. As you'd expect, this made some of the riders/talent on the bus unhappy.

"The seven-footer from Queens, New York, and his 5'11" partner developed into one of the most popular acts in all of WWE, and they appeared to be on the fast track to superstardom upon making their main debut. Being intoxicated in public is one of the underlying reasons the WWE office was down on Cass.

According to F4WOnline, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer claims WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon called a private meeting prior to Smackdown at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio and then fired Cass. There's speculation that an incident that happened last month may have gotten him in some heat with WWE officials.
