Former WWE superstar Big Cass has been trying to get his professional wrestling career started again since the WWE released him.
Photos from recent events show that Big Cass has gained a lot of weight since his WWE release, but he has been working anyway and had a role at the House of Hardcore show on Saturday night.
Big Cass suffers a seizure
However, while in the lobby doing an autograph signing, Big Cass reportedly fell to his face and suffered what Tommy Dreamer referred to as a seizure.
David Onda of Fightful was at the show and witnessed the entire incident as it went down, keeping fans updated on Twitter.
According to Onda, Big Cass was signing autographs and posing for photos at the intermission of the show when he collapsed face first into the ground.
Tommy Dreamer, who runs House of Hardcore, and Bubba Ray Dudley were there by his side after he fell.
Onda said that Big Cass was awake and his eyes were open and he seemed to be communicating with those around him. An ambulance shortly arrived and took him to a local hospital.
Tommy Dreamer came out and addressed the crowd, telling them that Big Cass suffered a seizure and emphasizing that it was “not drug-related.”
Cass loaded into an ambulance. And now we wait for additional info.

Update on Big Cass injury
PWInsider ran an update reporting that Big Cass was taken to the hospital and that he was coherent and speaking before the ambulance took him.
They also emphasized for people who are never sure what is real and what is not in wrestling that this was not a work or part of the show. Big Cass suffered a legitimate seizure and is currently in the hospital.
Big Cass was supposed to work an angle with Joey Ryan but former ECW star Blue Meanie replaced him at the event.
