Big Cass Upset Backstage Officials For Going Against Directive During Little Person Segment

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Big Cass upset the powers-that-be in WWE last week by going against a directive given to him before a segment involving a little person.

In case you missed it, the segment on SmackDown Live featured a little person dressed as Daniel Bryan and ended with Cass beating him down in the middle of the ring.

According to sources, however, it didn’t play out exactly as scripted.

We’re told Cass was directed to be done with the attack after hitting the impersonator with a big boot, but the wrestler asked if he could take it further with a beatdown. Backstage officials said no, but BC felt strongly about doing so and took the issue up with Vince McMahon … who also shot him down.

When the segment happened in the ring though, Big Cass went against what he was told after hitting the big boot and mounted the little person to throw a barrage of punches.

Sources tell us backstage officials were very unhappy and it landed the recently returned wrestler in hot water. A few days later he lost to Daniel Bryan at Backlash, then wasn’t used on TV during SmackDown Live this week. No word on whether that was already the plan before he went off-script.

The video of the segment published by WWE on YouTube does not include the punches, nor does the photo gallery on WWE.com. Watch the footage that was cut out below.

  1. Cass doesn’t seem too bright.

  2. It’s almost scary how insistent Big Cass was to attack this little person. I mean, trying to go above creative and straight to Vince McMahon? That’s a young HHH power-move. I almost believe that it was an ego thing and he really wanted to vent out through the little actor.

        Or he was trying to get some good heat on him

        • Everybody gets one moment to fight for (a WrestleMania match, a heel/face turn, or a title run to name a few). Big Cass choose his to be “him beating down a little person” that the fans don’t and will not care about. Not him beating down the REAL Daniel Bryan, but a parody. Where’s the heat to be gainned there?

  3. Big Cass wants to join his buddy Enzo in the unemployment line and you can’t teach that!

    So much for initiative and reaching for that brass ring.

  5. But Lesnar can deliver real mma style elbows to Orton and Reigns and give them red masks.

    • Pretending Cass and the biggest name in the company are on the same level is laughable. As is saying he did something he should not have (regarding Brock.) A handful of people know if he went off script of not. Believing every rumor is unwise.

    OH YOU DIDNT KNOW??? Lesnar is Vince’s little go too guy. Thats why he keeps the title, its because he is good at MMA as well as wresteling and WWE wants to promote more with MMA fighters to gain another edge against the competition. DUH!

    • What’s your point? Your post has nothing to do with the story. Reported

      • He is going off this other person’s idea Brock can break rules (allegedly kids) but and pretend even if he did he and Cass are on equal ground. Yeah-the biggest ame and the guy they were trying to build that no one would really miss if he is never seen again are the same.

      me might be good at MMA, but not at wrestling

      • He is great at wrestling. He could have won a gold medal most likely. In WWE he is as well. They have him do a handful of moves now, but watch his first run. He is good on the mic and had great matches. Fine if you don’t like him being part-time and how he is instructed to work now, but simply not true.

        • He *was* great at wrestling. I don’t think he could have half the caliber of matches that he could have when he was younger.

          • I disagree. If one is still in good health and can move like they always have they can have as good matches as they ever did. Like Cena-he could still have great matches like he did when he really started getting it going in that same period, but HHH and others convinced hi it is better to have a few moves and not tell a good story in the match by focusing on a body part like he did then.
            Now a guy like Angle can’t have the same kind of matches he did because he is just too old and his body isn’t the same.
            It is a shame though-that people are capable of much more than they are telling them they should do.

            “But HHH and other convinced him….”

            Yeah yeah, I get it, we all think we know what’s going on back stage…which is nonsense.

            Watch Brock move, he’s a shell of what he used to be. His power is there, but his agility, which is what set him apart for a guy his freakish size, is a fraction of what it used to be.

          • No-he is told to do it. He won his UFC fight guy. If he has no power he would not have won. It is you that seem to think everything is a story. Brock is a beast. They tell him to do a few moves.

          • Things happen backstage. Just because most get it wrong does not men no one gets it right. If one doesn’t think HHH gladly hurt Cena by giving him some bad advice I have some land to sell you. Getting many fans to turn on Cena makes HHH’s career look better.

          • He could if they said he could. In fairness he may like the current move set but no-he is very capable still. Silly to thin otherwise when he can still win in the UFC even.

          • SpireHawk | May 14, 2018 at 5:50 pm |

            Winning in the UFC has nothing to do with putting on an entertaining wrestling match.

            He’s still big but nowhere near as agile as he used to be. You think he could even attempt a shooting star press anymore? He’s nowhere near as fast and mobile as was. He’s got power, no doubt, but that’s about it anymore.

          • So you determine one is good in the ring if you can do a shooting star? Well, that explains why you can’t understand this.

          • Well-you are wrong. Don’t know what else to say.

          • SpireHawk | May 16, 2018 at 7:50 am |

            Truly stunning retort backed up by….nothing.

          • Like your accusations-when you base your stuff on nothing no one has to argue against it-you are just wrong.

          • SpireHawk | May 16, 2018 at 6:31 pm |

            Try actually reading. I’ve said that, no matter how much you deny it, rock is not the same physically as he once was. He’s lost more than one step. All you have to do is actually watch him with your eyes. Be as stubborn as you want, you’re just denying facts.

          • Huh-didn’t know we were discussing the Rock. Whatever. Shows how well you pay attention.

          • SpireHawk | May 17, 2018 at 7:42 am |

            It’s a sad sign when you take a clear typo as victory. Give it up, son, you’ve got nothing and have repeatedly proved that.

          • No kiddo-you just have no clue. You have made that apparent. Please stop proving you have no clue and move on, but I am sure you will keep on because you think getting the last word means you won a prize because your actual points are all wrong. This is the pathetic effect of growing up on the internet. Acing out is rewarded in the eyes of the children acting out.

          • SpireHawk | May 18, 2018 at 9:05 am |

            The irony is, and I’m sure it’s lost on your seeings as pretty much everything I’ve said has gone way over your head, is that you have yet to actually refute my point other than ‘nuh-uh’.

            You haven’t refuted that Brock has lost a step (which anyone with two functioning eyes and more than 4 working brain cells can put together…which may explain your problem…), that’s he’s slower and that his style has changed because of it. Instead you fall back on ‘Well he was TOLD to wrestle that way’, which is literally nothing you can prove.

            But please, continue to hold fast to your idiotic opinion that based on nothing. Have a good life, chief. I hope you find a way to navigate through you daily troubles of dressing yourself, coherent thought, and remembering to breath.

          • I did-you are wrong and foolish. Sad stuff.

          • You never proved he lost a step so how can anyone refute it dumbass. Just stop making yourself look like a fool.

    The beating of a midg…sorry, dwarf would cause some viewers to have an epileptic seizure & ask for a safe space

    • Or maybe (in the realm of reality), they’ll change the channel because there’s no investment in seeing some random jobber getting beat down? Just like any other squash match ever?

  9. Insubordination: “You can’t teach that”

  10. Guess if you follow pro wrestling then you’re too stupid to realize that all of this was scripted, as well.

    way better with the punches than without. hes a heel…let him heel out!

    • With the PC climate it was dumb to even do it at all. Yes-it would have been a bigger heel move to powerbomb him off the stage and make fun of his height and condition for 20 min as well but that is not the world we live in regardless if we think that is good or being too sensitive.

  14. I agree with cass there. If hes trying to establish himself as a bad guy, then a bad guy would’ve really taken the midget apart. Wwe is too PC and weak with the whole family entertainment angle.
