One of the few WWE Superstars who didn't return to WWE this past week was Big Cass. There may be a good reason for that as it appears WWE might be giving Cass a slight makeover.
It is being reported that WWE recently filed to trademark the "Colin Cassady" name. For those that don't recognize the name, Colin Cassady was the ring name Big Cass used to go by before the company shortened it. He wrestled in FCW and NXT as Cassady for some time, met his future tag team partner under that name and then in May of 2016, his name was changed to Big Cass.
After becoming incredibly popular in NXT, he was called up to the main roster but in August of 2017, Cass went down to injury and require knee surgery that would keep him out of action for several months. He was in the midst of a push with tag team partner Enzo Amore, who while Cass was away, got released from his WWE contract. Because Cass will be returning soon and without a tag team partner, it is believed WWE may want to change things up for him since his personality was largely tied to Enzo's mic work.
There were some in the WWE Universe who believed Cass might return at WrestleMania 34 in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and others who thought he might return on Raw the following evening, neither of which took place. He still may be part of the Superstar Shake-up starting next week but WWE may also choose to hold off on his return for a while, making sure they have the right character in mind for his return.
Expect Cass to be given a decent push upon his return. WWE feels he offers a lot of the qualities they look for in a WWE big-man. He's large, got personality and WWE fans were very much behind him at one time.
There was word as long as ago as the third week of March that Cass had been telling people he was cleared for a return, hanging around backstage and ready to get back to work.
