Injuries are one of the most common occurrences in the professional wrestling world, but especially in the WWE.
The men and women of WWE travel over 300 days a year around the world to entertain fans, each night brutalizing their bodies for our entertainment. With that kind of work load, an injury or two is nearly unavoidable.
Big Cass suffered a heartbreaking ACL tear several months ago last year when he was just getting started on his singles push during a match with Enzo Amore.
The injury was so bad that Cass couldn't finish the match and he had to be helped to the back of the arena to be evaluated. It was later revealed he tore his ACL and would be out for an extended amount of time.
He was finally able to return just after WrestleMania 34 by way of the Superstar Shake-Up, where he was moved to Monday Night RAW. Right off the bat Cass started feuding with fan-favorite Daniel Bryan.
It looked as though WWE was getting ready for a major push of the seven-foot giant as a top heel. Cass would fall out of favor a bit with WWE officials, however, after going against Vince McMahon's wishes during a SmackDown Live segment.
As a result, not only did he lose his match to Daniel Bryan at Backlash via submission, but he was also not used on the following show on Tuesday.
Recently, Bryan and Cass have continued their feud on WWE TV and seem to have been building up to another bout. However, Cass was scheduled to take on Samoa Joe for a shot at qualifying for the Money In The Bank (MITB) Ladder match.
It looks like Cass may have suffered another injury during WWE's recent European tour, however, as he has bee limping during a lot of his matches the past few days.
Some people believed he was simply working a fake injury that he suffered after being attacked by Daniel Bryan on SmackDown, but Cass has just been pulled from his MITB qualifying match against Samoa Joe on SmackDown Live due to the injury.
SmackDown Live General Manager Paige made the announcement on Twitter, and revealed Daniel Bryan and Jeff Hardy will instead go head-to-head in a Second Chance match. The winner will take on Samoa Joe for the final spot in the MITB match:
