RAW Superstar Big Cass spoke recently spoke with Sam Roberts at the Ringside Fest event in New York City. Cass spoke about his recovery from ACL surgery, what he’s been up to during his time away and how long he’ll be out of action.
Cass tore his ACL on the August 21st edition of Monday Night RAW during a match against Enzo Amore. He felt and heard a pop in his leg and knew immediately that he tore his ACL, which has an 8-9 month recovery period. He described it was an emotional situation and told Sam Roberts that he was very, very angry at the time.
Big Cass’ current physical rehabilitation routine includes training twice a day. Cass says he’s been working with John Cena‘s trainer Rob McIntyre. He plans to return bigger, better and stronger than ever. If he stays on track, he should be back in the ring shortly after WrestleMania 34.
During his time away, Cass and Carmella bought a house in Tampa. In addition to playing video games and watching shows, Cass said he’s been brushing up on his Spanish in hopes of making himself even more valuable to WWE.
Cass and Carmella are featured on the new season of Total Divas. Cass said it’s “very, very weird” being on a reality TV show but acknowledges that’s what he signed up for.
