Worrying footage has emerged of former WWE star Big Cass suffering seizure at independent event

It hasn't been the easiest of 2018's for former WWE superstar Big Cass.

Believe it or not, it looked like the near-seven foot New Yorker was set for big things when drafted to SmackDown back in April in the Superstar Shake-up following his recovery from a knee injury.

He immediately went after Daniel Bryan, and we got the typical big man versus little man story that we see a lot in the wrestling world.

Cass really hadn't been that deserving of being in a feud with someone like Bryan, especially when fans wanted Bryan to be in the title picture immediately following his return to the ring.

Despite being the last man eliminated in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia, Cass comprehensively lost his feud with Bryan, and would compete in his last match in the WWE at Money In The Bank in June - he was released just two days later.

It was a shock to many, but Sports Illustrated reported that behavioural issues and disobeying the orders of Vince McMahon played a part in his downfall.

Cass had to turn to the independent circuit once his 90-day no compete clause had expired - now going under the name of 'Big C'

But sad news came out of his most recent appearance on the circuit last night.

Big Cass has had a rough 2018, and things got even worse after suffering an apparent seizure at an independent show.

Before making a planned showing at a House of Hardcore event, Cass suffered an apparent seizure in the lobby of the area whilst being surrounded by people.

Footage was taken of EMTs attending to Cass, but viewing discretion is advised.

It's really upsetting to see such a thing occurring, especially to someone who's had a rough year in the wrestling business.

House of Hardcore's promoter is former ECW legend Tommy Dreamer, and he asked for attending fans to 'say a prayer' for the stricken star.

Get well soon, Cass.
