Big Cass issued an apology over his behavior this past weekend at the WrestlePro event which was the farewell for Pat Buck.
Cass got involved in several backstage alterations and ended up spitting in Buck’s face. Buck, who just signed with WWE as a producer, knocked Cass out with a punch before police were called in to eject the former WWE Superstar.
“I have been very honest with my past struggles, and it has been an ongoing battle. 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,” Cass wrote in a statement released on Enzo Amore’s Twitter account.
“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,” Cass continued.
He closed his apology by saying that when and if he reemerges as a public figure, it will be in good faith and he hopes to inspire those who struggle with the same mental health issues he does 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.”
