With the Superstar Shakeup in full swing, names have been bouncing between brands, and the biggest, literally, is Big Cass who returned from injury on SmackDown Live.
The last time fans saw Big Cass was during an episode of Raw when the tallest guy in the room took on his former tag team partner Enzo Amore. The match didn’t go as planned, however, and the seven-foot giant tore an ACL which put him on the shelf for the remainder of 2017 and a good chunk of 2018.
It looks like things are on the up for Cass who appeared during an interview with Daniel Bryan. Big Cass went on to mock Bryan for his height before walking off the screen.

There’s no word yet on what this means for Cass and who he can square off against in his first feud since his return. We doubt he’ll ever see a conclusion to his feud with the now-released Amore, and while he made his return to mock Daniel Bryan, the leader of the Yes Movement wouldn’t be an ideal option as fans were salivating at the chance to see a Bryan vs The Miz when the A-Lister returns next week. Still, a return in a segment with arguably the most popular Superstar in the company should be a good sign for Cass.
Big Cass joins the likes of The Miz, Jeff Hardy, Absolution (Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville), Samoa Joe, Asuka, and Gallows and Anderson, and The Bar. WWE also revealed the NXT faction SAnitY which consists of Eric Young, Killian Dain, Nikki Cross (who may not come up with the team), and Alexander Wolfe. For a show that’s an hour shorter than Raw, SmackDown Live will be going forward with a loaded card. One will wonder how everyone will find time on-screen! We guess there are worse problems to have, as SmackDown Live seemed to be faltering near the tail end of last year, and up to WrestleMania.
Cass is a big get for SmackDown Live, both literally and figuratively. With Baron Corbin moving to Raw, the Blue Brand was missing a big body, and Big Cass can certainly fill that role. One thing’s for sure, SmackDown Live got some size this draft, and the Blue Brand's roster is looking a lot more full than it did on Monday night.
