– Big Cass was backstage at this week’s Raw at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, and according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter published today, he has been cleared to return to action from injury.
Cass has been out of action since undergoing surgery to repair an ACL tear suffered during a Brooklyn Street Fight against the since-released Enzo Amore on Monday Night Raw on August 21, 2017. In that bout, which had been completely dominated by Cass, Cass charged Enzo, who was on the apron. Enzo avoided him and Cass went over the top to the floor, landing badly on his left leg, which twisted wrong. Cass returned to the ring and even executed a bodyslam on Amore, after which he presumably told the referee that something was wrong. Cass went to rebound off the ropes for the Empire Elbow but his knee buckled and Cass went down. Cass rolled to the apron, where he was met by a WWE medical official.
Cass was in the midst of his first singles push at the time. He had been expected back by May, which would have meant missing Wrestlemania 34. However, the word backstage last night indicates he may be back before May.
