A couple weeks ago, no Enzo no problem, Cass came out and took issue with The Vaudevillains, and we got a large tag team match out of it. This past RAW? He went after Chris Jericho, taking exception to Chris dissing the so-called “New Era”, of which Cass features prominently. I mean, hey, the guy is 7 feet tall. Pretty prominent!
But I don’t know if anyone expected Cass to be booked into the RAW main event, against one of the best wrestlers on WWE’s active roster. To say it was a huge moment would be an understatement of epic proportions. But, alas, the match did not happen, as Dean Ambrose interrupted to get even with Jericho. Cass was involved, but he was not really in the spotlight as much as we were thinking he could be.
So was this all just a ruse? Or is this a sign of things to come?
I have a few thoughts on this, so without much more delay…
1-Vince loves his big men. Yes, I know that sounds all sorts of wrong, but it’s true. It took a lot for guys like Bret Hart and HBK to get their shots, because for so long, Vince felt that it was the Warriors and Hogans of the world that warranted the top billing. As Cass always says, he’s 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that. And, for a big man, he’s got a good set of skills. It’s not hard to imagine Vince becoming enamored with him so soon, especially when his most recent big man object of affection (Reigns) just can’t get over. So it’s only a matter of time before it’s all about Big Cass the singles star.
2-It’s too soon to consider. I mean, when you are ready, you are ready, and Cass has not looked overwhelmed thus far. But he just joined the main roster, and I can think of half a dozen guys, at least, right off the top of my head, who ought to be challenging for the big prize before we even get to Cass. And really, that list is longer than 6. That’s not hating on Cass. That’s just living in reality.
3-He’s handled time without Enzo before. If memory serves, Enzo lost a lot of time a while back due to an injury, and Cass got along fine enough without his partner. But, as soon as Enzo could rejoin him he did. My point? Either they really enjoy teaming up, or someone, somewhere, sees a better path as a tag team, perhaps. But while I doubt Enzo misses months due to the concussion (but it is possible), I don’t see Cass ready to ditch the tag ranks anytime soon.
I will say this. It’s refreshing to see a popular big man in the main event scene, even if it was only a brief tease. And I doubt it’s the last time we see Big Cass in that spot.
