Big Cass Comments on Weekend WrestlePro Incident
After being involved in an incident this past weekend backstage at a WrestlePro show, Big Cass has commented. Posting through tag team partner Enzo’s Instagram, Cass apologized. His statement reads (h/t WrestlingInc on the transcription):
“I have been very honest with my past struggles, and it has been an ongoing battle,” he wrote. “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”
Best wishes to Cass on his road to recovery and props to him for seeking help.
