Big Cass is an interesting case in WWE. When he was paired up with Enzo Amore, the two of them were one of the most over tag teams on the entire main roster. Even though they weren’t winning anything, fans loved the charismatic duo.
As time progressed and the team continued to not win tag team gold, fans felt like a separation was incoming. Of course, Big Cass would be the one to turn on Enzo and ever since then, has seemed to totally fall off of fans’ radars.
WWE is now pairing him up against Daniel Bryan, but is this enough to make Cass feel like a big deal?
Injuries are always an unfortunate problem that the majority of WWE superstars have to go through. The worst injuries are the worst timed ones, and Big Cass’s knee injury was at the all-time worse moment for the 7-foot tall New Yorker. It felt like Cass was just about to finish up his feud with Enzo when he tore his ACL. Now it’s impossible to know what WWE had planned for Cass, but I do think they would have wanted to push him as the next big guy.
When Big Cass returned last month, as much as I wanted to see Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz, it was a good comeback rivalry for Cass. He’s a great ‘bully’ character and the size difference between the two men makes for an interesting match-up. Or at least that’s what I thought, until Bryan just absolutely buried Cass at Backlash, making his comeback feel incredibly weak.
Daniel Bryan then injured Cass’s knee again, which luckily was minor, but has set up for another match between the two at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. This will arguably be the biggest match of Big Cass’s whole career. I’m not the biggest fan of Cass, but I am a big fan of seeing everyone having an equal opportunity.
I feel like Cass has given WWE a lot over the last few years, so I hope he gets a chance to shine.
If Cass loses his next PPV match, then the answer to the title of this article will be a solid ‘no’! I know that there are a lot of fantastic other superstars that have gained a lot of momentum while Cass was on the shelf. It was an extremely unfortunate injury that Cass suffered so he has a long and hard road to get back to where he may have been before getting hurt.
Time will tell for Big Cass, but right now, he does not feel like a big deal. He needs a big win to get himself back on track, but I think regardless, it will be a while before Cass becomes a top name on Smackdown Live. That’s not saying he doesn’t have what it takes, I believe every single person on the roster has what it takes to be great.
It just depends on what Cass will do with what he’s given.
