Caz also had run ins with AEW stars Joey Janela & So-Cal Uncensored. They included accusing them of stealing from him, and confronting Janela about his run-in with Caz’s tag team partner Enzo at a Blink 182 concert this summer. Caz has been very open about struggles with substance abuse, and reports indicate that his behavior could have been indicative of being under the influence. Here is hoping that Caz gets help should he need it.
