W Morrissey, the former Big Cass, is now in Impact Wrestling and he’s not holding anything back. The former WWE Superstar brought up a very personal experience during this week’s episode that is generating a lot of attention.
Morrissey cut a worked shoot promo on the fans this week. He also brought up his peers in the pro wrestling business. While describing the events that went on during his scary seizure episode, Morrisey cut a furious promo about how fans and other wrestlers turned their back on him. This left Morrissey with the task of handling things on his own.
Every time that I’ve fallen down in this industry, every time that something’s bad that’s happened to me or I made headlines for all the wrong reasons, people kicked me while I was down. When I had a seizure in front of 1,500 people in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Those fans who love us and adore us, you know what they did? They took out their phones and instead of dialing 911, they recorded it and put it on YouTube. And then everybody in the world got to watch me at my most vulnerable point. My former co-workers, people that are here behind-the-scenes, people that are in this locker room, do you know what they did when they saw that video? When I was at my lowest point, they laughed at me. Nobody reached out. People that I thought were my friends, they didn’t even reach out. Not even a text, not a phone call, “Hey man, how are you doing?” And for 3 years, nobody contacted me.
Then lo and behold, when I come back to wrestling, all those same people that hadn’t talked to me in years, all of them reached out. ‘Hey man, you look great! So happy to see you back! I always knew that you were gonna come back strong!’ Do you know why they did that? They wanna know that they had that powerful piece on their side.
When I make it to the top of this industry, when I make it to the top of this company, those people, they wanna be on my team. So they reach out and they buddy-buddy. ‘Cause they want to be my friend now. Because I’m doing great.
We’re not sure how much of that promo was 100% authentic, but video footage of Big Cass’ seizure did leak out online. That video still lives on through social media posts thanks to fans who recorded this tragic event in his life. That was real and it added an even more intense aspect to the promo.
The former Big Cass isn’t in Impact Wrestling with a long term contract. He is simply seeing what’s next for him at this time. It seems that he is focused and ready to take on anything at this point.
Are you happy that Big Cass seems to have pulled himself back up? Sound off in the comments!
