W Morrissey, formerly Big Cass, has opened up about his IMPACT debut being spoiled after it was kept quiet for “weeks” – asking, “Who’s the stooge?”
Speaking with Inside The Ropes‘ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy, who had reported that Morrissey would debut for IMPACT Wrestling “imminently” on the morning of Rebellion, the former WWE Superstar joked, “Oh, I’m aware” when the report was brought to his attention. When the seven-footer was asked for his thoughts when the report emerged, Morrissey responded with three words – “Who’s the stooge?”
“My first thought was, who’s the stooge? Was it the guy that picked me up from the airport? Was it the person that was in the lobby at the hotel that saw me? Or was it somebody that was here at the building in the production meeting or saw the run sheet? That was honestly my first thought was – ‘who’s the stooge’? Who said something?”
Morrissey added that he and Scott D’Amore had kept the secret for “weeks” before showing up in IMPACT,
“Because we kept… Me and Scott kept that quiet for weeks. And then the morning that I showed up here, the report came out and I said somebody ‘saw me or someone was at the building and heard, so who’s the stooge?’ So that was my first thought – who’s the stooge?”
W Morrissey also opened up about his journey to IMPACT Wrestling, and how the signing came about after speaking with Scott D’Amore at his Lariato Pro Wrestling appearance.
