Earlier this week, Big Cass was fired by WWE - just hours before SmackDown Live went on the air.

In fact, he was sent packing less than two after concluding his feud with Daniel Bryan - albeit, that was on that fans weren't really into anyway. 

WHY CASS WAS FIRED

Since his release, there have been lots of reports explaining why it happened - with many suggesting it was a build-up of multiple things, rather than one big mistake. 

Most of the reports point towards the attitude problems Cass apparently had - and his behaviour on the European Tour. 

While away from the US, it's suggested that Cass was seen intoxicated in public and that's never going to go down well with Vince McMahon. 

His on-screen actions are also said to have contributed, with Cass going against WWE orders during a segment with a "little person" - and refusing to practice one of his recent promos. 

Arguably, a build-up of all of these smaller things probably is enough to justify the "seven-footers" release - but according to more recent reports, something much bigger happened too. 

BACKSTAGE INCIDENT WITH CARMELLA 

According to a NoDQ, a WrestlingNews source has indicated that Cass was involved in a backstage incident with his ex-girlfriend, Carmella.

He allegedly tried to reconcile with her and when she tried to walk away from him, Cass grabbed her arm. 

Other wrestlers were present backstage and according to the source, The Usos and Erick Rowan had to step in to assure Cass backed away. 

This incident could have been the final straw that led to him being fired by WWE - because behaviour like that is unacceptable.

Of course, we'll never likely know exactly what, if anything, it was that led to Big Cass being released. At the moment, it seems that he was rubbing a lot of people the wrong way. 

You can also bet that this won't be the last we'll hear of the situation and as time goes on, even more new information could come to light.
