Predicting Big Cass’ WWE Career in One Year From Now


With Enzo Amore & Big Cass having gone their separate ways, where will the Big Man’s career be in one year hence?

On the June 19 episode of Raw, Big Cass revealed himself to have been the person behind the attacks on Enzo Amore. This marked his official heel turn and the end of the Enzo & Cass tag team. With this split, questions now arise about where both men will end up in a year’s time.

Of the two of them, Cass is more likely to be successful than Amore. This is due to several factors that work in Cass’s favor. First and most obviously, Cass is a big man, standing around 7 feet tall and weighing over 300lbs. Vince McMahon absolutely loves big men, owing to the belief that a bigger man will always win in a real fight.

Second, Cass has actually shown that he can speak quite well, despite Enzo being the more frequent talker when they were a tag team. Third, Cass has shown that he’s surprisingly agile, capable of doing a lot of running and jumping moves, which make him look more like a juggernaut.

All of these attributes will help Cass in the future, and with them in mind, we look to predict where Cass will be in one year from now.

Over the next few months, Cass is likely to continue his feud with Enzo Amore. Many people saw their team as one of the best things on RAW, as one of its most popular acts. Even though their promos tended to suffer from repetition, the live crowds seem to adore them regardless. As such, many people will be angry that their teaming together has ended, and will be expressing that anger towards Cass.

Cass will thus embrace this full heel mentality, and become an angry jerk that’s unrepentant for his vicious assault on his former partner. Given how much air time this ‘mystery’ got on RAW over the past few weeks, it’s likely to remain a high-profile feud on RAW for months to come.

Enzo will try to get his revenge on Cass over the next few months, which will culminate in a big match at SummerSlam 2017. In that match, Enzo will play the valiant underdog trying to defeat his giant former friend. But in the end, it won’t be enough, and Cass will use his superior size and strength to defeat Enzo and end their feud.

Come the fall, Cass will have moved on to feud for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. It’s at this point that Cass will start an undefeated Streak that will see him defeat one opponent after another decisively. Just like with Braun Strowman (and to a lesser extent, Roman Reigns) before him, Big Cass would end up as another big man that gets a major push while losing the lowest number of matches possible.

The most likely situation would see Cass win the WWE Intercontinental Championship in September or October, and would win every single match as Champion. This would, in turn, elevate both Cass as a performer and the belt in terms of prestige. This would be Cass’s main storyline/rivalry between September and November, until Survivor Series.

At Survivor Series, WWE would do the same 5-on-5 Elimination Tag Team match, and Cass would be on team RAW. At this point, WWE would take one of two creative directions regarding Big Cass. Option 1 would see Cass become the sole survivor of his team, eliminating at least two of his opponents while also requiring multiple attacks from his opponents to keep him down.

Option 2 would be that Cass would be eliminated, but it would be either due to count-out or disqualification (if it’s the latter, it would be due to him attacking all of his opponents with weapons, to show off his brutality). This would protect him from taking a more decisive pinfall or submission loss, which would so much more harm to him on such a major stage.

After Survivor Series, Cass would continue defending his Intercontinental Championship against one midcarder after another, including a special end-of-year big match against former partner Enzo Amore. Once again, Cass would win and show that, despite quite some time having passed, Cass would still have no interest in reforming the team or showing empathy towards the man that, in his mind, was holding him back.

Come 2018, Cass would still be Intercontinental Champion, but would soon put that aside for the Royal Rumble Match. Cass would enter midway through that match, possibly at number 15 or 20, or somewhere in between.

From this position, Cass would eliminate several smaller opponents and would have a stare-down with another major threat in the match such as Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, or Baron Corbin (assuming none of these men are world champion). Ultimately, it would take several men to eliminate Big Cass, with some of them also hitting their finishers in order to weaken him.

The idea here would be to sell the idea that Cass is so dangerous and powerful that top guys need to use their biggest moves just to get him over the top rope. Cass would last until the final eight, at which point everyone in the ring at that point combines their effort to eliminate him. In doing so, Cass would look very strong while being eliminated wouldn’t hurt him that much.

Finally, Big Cass would be featured prominently on the card for WrestleMania 34. First, he would be in a feud over the Intercontinental Championship, against a young babyface underdog trying to win the belt from him.

That match would be somewhere on the lower card, and this opponent, whoever it would be, would defeat Cass in a narrow victory that would be presented as an upset. Cass would then beat-up this challenger after the match, to show that he’s still a dangerous threat.

Then, later on in the show, WWE would have the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. At that point, Big Cass would be a surprise entrant in that match, and would then win that match. In doing so, Cass would lose one belt while still looking strong in attacking them post-match and by winning the Battle Royal.

By late June 2018, Big Cass will have reached the upper mid-card level and would be quickly approaching the world title level. He’ll have defeated many opponents as Intercontinental Champion, and would soon enter the world title picture. At this point, Big Cass would feud with then-Universal Champion Roman Reigns (which, we assume, would make Vince McMahon’s head explode).
