Brian Fritz of SportingNews.com recently spoke with Big Cass to promote the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view.
Cass speaks on the video, from a WWE Breaking Ground episode, where Triple H informs Cass and Enzo Amore that they were coming to the RAW brand just a few days before WrestleMania 32. Regarding Cass’ girlfriend Carmella, Triple H told them that she has a lot of potential to be a star on her own but to do that, she needs to be in WWE NXT now. Carmella ended up coming to the main roster in the WWE Draft.
Cass commented on if he knew what was about to happen:
“No. So, we were at NXT TakeOver: Dallas and it was a very emotional night. We train with these guys. We weren’t even on the show, but we felt like we were part of the show because it’s a brotherhood down at the Performance Center. It’s all just a big family down there. It was emotional for us to see the show and to watch everybody go out there and light it up. We were leaving the venue and Triple said he wanted to talk to us. He brings me and Enzo into the room and, I don’t know if it’s on the video, but he congratulated us and I said, “Thank you very much” and then I realized, wait a second, we didn’t even perform tonight. So it was pretty weird to start off the conversation like that. It was a very emotional night and you felt like you were a part of it. I didn’t know what he was congratulating us for. Then he says you’re coming up to the main roster on Monday and then I realized that’s what he said congratulations for.
“It was just a very surreal experience. I’ve been signed here for about five years when that conversation took place, so I’ve been working for that moment for five years. Me and Enzo, three years together, have been working at it to get to the main roster. So when we had that conversation with Triple H, it was very surreal and a lot of mixed emotions in that moment. But I’d say the most overwhelming emotion was joy. We were just so ecstatic about finally getting to debut on the main roster.”
