Cass Acts Erratically at Indie Event; Confronts Joey Janela, Gets Punched By Pat Buck

-- WrestlePro held an event last night, marking it as a farewell for owner Pat Buck, who was wrestling his last match for the indie promotion after signing a contract with WWE to join them as a producer. According to former WWE wrestler Big Cass was signed on as a surprise appearance on the card in a battle royal but was said to be acting “aggressive and erratic” backstage throughout the night before his match even came on.

-- At one point, Cass confronted AEW wrestler Joey Janela, presumably over Janela's incident with Enzo Amore at a Blink 182 concert which you can read about HERE. According to one person, Cass allegedly slapped Janela and the whole confrontation was considered strange because the two appeared at another indie event the night before without incident. Others tried to diffuse the situation but Cass continued to act wild and belligerent so Janela (and his opponent for the night Dan Maff) were moved to a separate room so they could go over their upcoming match.

-- Cass' crazy behavior continued as he then made his way throughout the locker room accusing people of "stealing his sweater", while saying that he was going to be "taking care of people" which many took as an insinuation that he was going to start beating people up. He continued on his way until getting to a room with Buck and AEW stars SCU, who were going over their match for the night. Cass continued to confront others over his sweater and turned to Buck and said "what are you going to do, tough guy?" before allegedly spitting in his face. Buck then took down Cass with a punch and other talent ran in to drag Cass away. After being punched, Cass' aggressive demeanor disappeared and he began questioning why he was punched. Local police then removed Cass from the building and the rest of the event went on as planned.

-- Most people backstage at the event came away with the feeling that Cass acted very unprofessional at a time when he is trying to re-establish his reputation in the business. Even after he was escorted out of the building, Cass was said to have been behaving strangely to the point that the police called for an ambulance to take him to the hospital, perhaps for a psychological assessment.
