Big Cass Removed from Money in the Bank Qualifier Due to Injury

big cass injured wwe smackdown live european tour

Paige just revealed that Big Cass has been removed from an upcoming Money in the Bank qualifying match on SmackDown Live this week due to an injury he suffered on the European tour.

The General Manager of SmackDown tweeted:

Due to [Big Cass] injury, [Daniel Bryan] will face [Jeff Hardy] tomorrow night on in a second chance match… The winner will face [Samoa Joe] NEXT WEEK for an opportunity to qualify and enter the Men’s Ladder Match.

Cass appeared to injure his knee working a tag match in Amsterdam with Miz against Daniel Bryan and Tye Dillinger. At one point, Cass drops to his knee on the ring apron and begins limping afterward. He then strikes the ring apron in frustration.

After the match was over, Big Cass was helped to the back by a referee.

The same scene played out in Munich the next day, however, and was filmed for — leading many to speculate on the authenticity of the injury. If it is indeed legitimate, this would follow an 8-month recovery from a torn ACL in his left knee that required surgery.

In the video below, the left knee appears to be the body part Cass is favoring.

On top of all this, we reported two weeks ago that Cass was in the dog house for going off-script during a segment with a little person.

We’ve made attempts to confirm how serious the injury is and will update you if we get more information on the matter.
