Big Cass has taken to Twitter to apologise to fans after his well-publicised confrontation with Pat Buck at a WrestlePro show over the weekend.
While nothing has been confirmed, it is reported that Cass was acting erratically backstage before being punched by Buck.
Cass has spoken publicly about his issues with alcohol and mental health after being released by WWE, and before this past weekend’s incident, it looked as though he was very much on the right path.
Hopefully this is little more than a small hiccup in his recovery, and Cass himself has promised to his fans that he will keep fighting to get better.
I’m sorry. I’m going to keep fighting. Promise me you’ll do the same. We are all in this together.??????

His former tag partner Enzo Amore posted a statement from Cass on Instagram yesterday, which you can see below.

A letter from my best friend @thecazxl ?? …… 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. 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 —
