Big Cass broke the ACL during Street Fight with Enzo Amore at WWE RAW and soon received an operation to let him go out for nine months.
Big Cass opened a heartbreacking moment that realized the degree of his injury:
“I knew my knee was torn, but your first instinct is always ‘I’ve got to keep going if you can possibly go.’ I’m obviously visibly hurt. I’m hobbling and I slammed Enzo into the ground, and then I went for the elbow off my left leg. I always do my elbow off my left leg and my leg just went out. It’s frustrating when your brain is telling you to do something and your body won’t let you. That’s the most frustrating thing. I knew when I landed I had torn my ACL. Just from everything I had heard and read, I knew right away.”
