W Morrissey (Big Cass) Reveals Why He Changed His Ring Name, & More


During a recent appearance on the “Inside The Ropes” podcast, Impact Wrestling Superstar W Morrisey (Big Cass in WWE) commented on changing his ring name, his contract with Impact Wrestling, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On opting to change his name: “Because it’s a fresh start in a new company and, you know, this is day one of a new journey for me. It’s day one of me making it to the top of professional wrestling on my own with a healthy mindset, being sober and happy and healthy – and it was a brand new start.”

On wanting a fresh start with his new ring name: “I didn’t want anything associated with what I used to do or who I used to be getting in the way of this new journey, so anything that I used to do went out the window, including gear, the look, everything. I wanted a fresh start, and I thought coming back as a heel… When Scott Hall and Kevin Nash showed up at WCW, I thought that was really cool using their real names but, for a heel, just having me abbreviate my first name instead of saying it – I thought that that was pretty, pretty arrogant.”

On signing with Impact Wrestling: “Yeah, I worked the Lariato show, where I came back, for Gallows, and then the next time I went to Lariato Pro, Scott D’Amore was doing a training session there and actually scouting talent earlier in the day. So he was hanging around the show and I got a chance to talk to him, and he saw that I was healthy and in a good place mentally, and obviously in really great shape and, you know, I had more of a professional mindset coming back to wrestling, just treating it like, ‘Let’s do good business, let’s make money together,’ and I guess after that conversation, we stayed in touch and that’s when we started talking about me actually coming here.”
