It’s being reported by many Wrestling sources that former WWE Superstar Big Cass aka CazXL and AEW star Joey Janela got into a confrontation backstage at Saturday night’s WrestlePro event in New Jersey. Apparently Cass had an issue with Janela’s prior altercation with his friend Enzo Amore at a Blink 182 concert. It’s not 100% confirmed that the confrontation got physical but it is reported that several people attempted to diffuse the situation. But later in the night Cass insinuated that he was going to beat people up after believing someone stole his sweater. WrestlePro owner now WWE producer Pat Buck was reportedly put in the middle of the situation and was spit on and backed into a wall by Cass. Buck would end up punching Cass, knocking the former WWE Superstar to the ground. There were police nearby. Cass was escorted out of the venure and the police reportedly searched his car. Cass began yelling things that caused concern and he would be transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Janela has since commented on the incident.
Not gonna elaborate at all on this whole deal besides that it was probably the bizzare situation I’ve ever seen let alone been a part of in a wrestling locker room in 15 years, everything was cordial and friendly Friday and I hope the dude gets back on the right track…
