— WWE (@WWE) 19 June 2018
Cass had been originally brought through WWE’s development system NXT before joining the main roster in 2016 with tag team partner Enzo Amore, who was later released in 2017 following sexual assault allegations. Which he was eventually cleared of all charges earlier this year. Amore seemed to aim a tweet to Morrissey shortly after WWE announced his release.

Cass was sidelined In August last year after suffering an ACL injury in a match against Amore, he would later return to the ring 9 months later in May beginning a feud with fan favourite Daniel Bryan. However, the 7-footer would go on to lose 2 PPV matches in a row at the hands of the bearded one at Backlash and Money In The Bank.
No details have been released by the company for the reasoning of the departure but according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, a meeting was called by Vince Mcmahon and what followed was the release of the 7ft giant just hours before Smackdown.

What is noteworthy is that upon a release, WWE usually wishes the superstars all the best in future endeavours, however, they did not on this occasion. We’re sure that there is much more to this one than what meets the eye.
So what do you think? Is there more to this story or were both parties not happy with the current development and decided it was best to part both ways? Drop a comment below!
