In a short statement on WWE.COM, it was announced that
William Morrissey, better known to fans as Big Cass, has
been fired and released from his contract effective

WWE has come to terms on the release of William Morrissey
(Big Cass), the statement said, lacking the usual good luck
in future endeavors part.

The 30-year-old New York native has been employed by WWE
since 2011, first wrestling at Florida Championship
Wrestling and then NXT. He formed a team with Enzo Amore in
2013 and the duo became one of the most popular tag teams at
the WWE developmental territory.

Big Cass joined the main roster on the Raw after
WrestleMania 32 along with Amore, confronting the Dudley
Boyz. The two were eventually split up and started a feud
together until Cass suffered a torn ACL on the Raw the night
after SummerSlam 2017, keeping out of action for eight

He was moved to Smackdown as part of the Superstar Shake-Up
earlier this year and a month ago he got in trouble for
going off script while in an angle with a little person on
the show. Cass was punished by being taken off the MITB
qualifying match although he was added again a few weeks
later. His feud with Daniel Bryan wrapped up at the Money In
The Bank pay-per-view where he tapped out, his second loss
to Daniel Bryan after Backlash.
