It had been previously reported that Big Cass was released from WWE for various reasons, including a confrontation with his ex-girlfriend Carmella, going off-script on a Smackdown Live promo, breaking a bus bathroom door while on tour, and more.

Cass is also a very vocal supporter of Donald Trump, and this lead to an argument with Sami Zayn backstage that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Booker T recently discussed this on his podcast, Heated Conversations With Booker T. Below are some highlights from the show:

On Big Cass’ release:

“There are so many rumors flying around as far as his release,” Booker T said. “The story is bigger than Big Cass. For instance, back in the day, you didn’t tell anyone who you voted for, you know what I mean? It was a secret. You don’t bring that stuff up together because we have to be friends. That is something that you have to deal with inside yourself.

On his relationship with Cass:

“I personally liked the guy. I didn’t know about his personal beliefs about voting for Donald Trump. Maybe that was part of it, but my thing is this; I’ve been one of the boys, I had to work in that locker room, I may have had heat with some of the boys in certain times throughout my career but if I went out and performed in the ring all of that overshadowed and trumped everything, which is with your performance.

“If you are on time; if you are ready to go as far as people needing you for a promo set and not looking all throughout the building for you. Everything comes into play as far as being around or not. Being a General or being a Private. I want to be a General so I am always going to be on time and had my shoes spit shined. All of my medals are going to be straight. The bed, everything is tucked. If you don’t take care of your business this is what is going to happen to you.”
