Truth behind WWE reportedly wanting to rehire Big Cass and Enzo Amore
Former WWE Superstar Big Cass has confirmed that he and Enzo Amore did not hold talks with WWE about a return to NXT in 2019.
It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in August 2019 that WWE had been in touch with both Superstars. The company allegedly wanted Cass and Amore to rejoin NXT to coincide with the brand’s launch on the USA Network as a two-hour weekly show.
Speaking to WrestleTalk’s Louis Dangoor, Cass said his name might have been mentioned in a meeting amongst WWE officials. However, he did not receive any communication from people within WWE around that period of time.
“If there was any truth to it, it was never spoken about with me, because I was blindsided by that. I think someone would’ve maybe called me.
“But I’m sure maybe there was a meeting where maybe our name came up and that’s all anybody needed to be like, ‘Oh, there we go,’ and put that out there.
“Just to get people clicking and to get a news story out there, but I was not informed and I was never called so that, as far as I know, wasn’t happening, at all.”
Big Cass and Enzo Amore both competed on the independent scene following their WWE departures in 2018. With the exception of Amore appearing in the crowd at Survivor Series 2018, neither Superstar has returned to WWE since they received their releases.
Big Cass’ WWE exit and current status
Cass has suffered from alcoholism and mental health issues in recent years. Following a spell in rehab, he decided in late 2020 that he wanted to return to wrestling after over a year away from the spotlight. He recently made his comeback at a Lariato Pro Wrestling event on February 28, 2021.
