It had been a very promising year for former WWE star Big Cass, but everything came crashing down very suddenly at a recent WrestlePro show, where he seemingly let him anxiety and depression get the better of him.
Cass has since announced that he will be going away for a while to seek the help he needs, but in the meantime it seems that former tag partner Enzo Amore will have his back.
Say what you will about Enzo, but he is being a damn good friend to Big Cass in one of the darkest times of his life.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Enzo said: ”
I will set up a place on social media [for fans] to get their letters over to Big Cass and let him know that you’re going through something similar or you understand what he’s going through because depression and anxiety is a serious battle. When someone goes through it, it doesn’t matter how much money they have or what they’ve achieved or how great life may seem. It’s a disease. I do believe there is a remedy to it and I think it’s prayer. I’m a naysayer of people who say the manifestation of words isn’t all-powerful. I know it is.”
He went on to thank DDP and WWE for their support for Cass in the past.
“I would like to extend a thank you to WWE,” said Enzo. “DDP has gotten in touch with WWE on our behalf and let them know that he’s been helping Big Cass and that there’s an issue here that needs to be remedied. Anxiety and depression is a disease and that disease is on-set by a multitude of things. There’s a company in the WWE that took some responsibility here and did the right thing and sent Big Cass to the best doctors that they could. We’re hoping that this is the solution.”
I think it’s fair to say that everyone at WrestleTalk wishes Cass a very speedy recovery and we hope to see him back in the ring when he is ready.
