Big Cass says he was dealing with mental health and alcohol issues after his WWE release but he’s cleaned up his life

Former WWE Superstar Big Cass (now known as CaZXL) seems to be in better health, mentally and physically, these days.

Following his match with Jon Moxley at Northeast Wrestling show at Six Flags Slam Fest on Saturday night, Cass opened up about some of the issues he was dealing with after he was released by WWE. He noted that he is in a good place mentally and in much better shape than he was several months ago.

Cass said, “I took a booking with Northeast Wrestling for Mike Lombardi. I’ve heard a lot of great things about him and came in here for a match. I came in here to beat people’s asses and that’s exactly what I did. I did not sign up to face Jon Moxley. He is fresh off a 5-day week schedule with WWE. He’s on top of his game, he just made waves at AEW’s Double or Nothing. He is at the top of the world and he’s got all of the momentum in the world, so of course he is gonna beat me. The last time people saw me I was fat, I was drunk, and I was out of shape, I was on the floor and going to the hospital because I had a seizure. My life was falling apart [and I had] mental health issues, I was an alcoholic – all of that. Six months later, I’m 300 f***ing pounds. I’m a tank, I’m shredded, I look amazing and in the best shape of my life.”

Cass gave credit to Moxley for the win. Cass said he would be the biggest name in the wrestling business in a year. “CazXL is gonna be coming for everybody. Indies, AEW, WWE, everybody watch out. I’ll be the biggest name in the industry in about 12 months.”

It’s great to see and hear Cass looking better than he’s ever been.
