WWE superstar Big Cass has been out of action since Aug. 21, 2017, when he suffered a legitimate torn ACL injury in a Street Fight match against Enzo Amore, but that hasn't stopped the star from discussing a comeback. The injury came shortly after the Cass-Amore tag team broke up, while the creative team was trying to push the 7-foot giant.
ACL tears are among the very worst injuries an athlete can suffer, and the timetable can be anywhere from six months to a year or longer. With WrestleMania 34 just five months away, fans are wondering if Big Cass will be able to compete on the Grandest Stage of Them All. Well, he was able to give an update while appearing on the The Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast.
When asked if he would recover in time to return at WrestleMania, Big Cass simply replied: "if everything goes right." By then, it'll have been seven-and-a-half months since his ACL tear.
Months before his injury, Big Cass was rumored to get a big push as a singles competitor, following his break up and betrayal of Enzo. He had been feuding with Big Show and The Certified G before the freakish knee injury.
For what it's worth, fellow WWE superstar Seth Rollins suffered a torn ACL during a match against Kane on Nov. 4, 2015. He returned on May 22 at Extreme Rules, just over six months after his injury. So, Cass and the fans can only hope that his recovery will be as quick as The Architect's.
Without Big Cass, Enzo Amore has headlined the Cruiserweight Division and is the current champion. He attacked Kalisto (along with fellow Cruiserweights), several weeks ago to complete a heel turn. Thus far, Enzo has been able to prove that he doesn't need to rely on one of the "realist guys in the room."
As for Big Cass, he can only focus on getting healthy first. We'll then see who he feuds with next and if the creative team chooses to continue with his push.
