W. Morrissey (Big Cass) Talks Joining Impact Wrestling, His Contract Status


W. Morrissey, formerly known as Big Cass in WWE, sat down with Gary Cassidy of Inside the Ropes to discuss a wide range of topics such as his contract status with Impact Wrestling. 

Here are some of the highlights: 

Joining the promotion: 

“Because it’s a fresh start in a new company and, you know, this is day one of a new journey for me.,” Morrissey said. “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. 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. So the day of is when I decided, or we decided, that we were going to be W. Morrissey instead.”

His contract status: 

“I’m here right now. That’s really all I can say,” Morrissey said. “I’m grateful to wake up every day, I’m grateful to be alive, so I have to live one day at a time and I can’t future-trip, man, because in recovery, if you future-trip, that’s unhealthy so in terms of real long-term and looking too far down the line, where am I going to end up? I can’t worry about that. But for right now, I’m in and I love being in IMPACT – and I’m going to tell you, I’ll be here today, tomorrow and probably a few weeks from now, but as far as super long-term, there’s nothing really long-term set right now.”
