Enzo Amore on W. Morrissey: “Here’s a guy who tried to kill himself”
“It’s no mystery that my tag team partner William Morrissey, as presented on AEW television, went through a hell so real that most people don’t understand until they see it, where they have it and it affects them and their lives. I saw it at its absolute worse, at a time where the world thought me and Big Cass were no longer friends and we hated each other, they had no idea what Cass was going through and that I was there to witness a lot of it. We never really spoke about it in public, but he made his fight very public and he made a DDPY [DDP Yoga] video to inspire people. That’s the point. Here’s a guy who inspired people. Here’s a guy who tried to kill himself. When I say he tried to kill himself, one time I went into a hotel that I had to convince the security and the people at the hotel to let me in the f***** door of that room because Cass was back there trying to kill himself. There were 30 empty beer cans and bottles of wine and liters of Jack Daniels, completely f***** empty.
I threw him in my car and we drove because he couldn’t make it on a flight from Chicago to New York City and we had to stop at hospitals because he was withdrawing. We stopped and we went to Notre Dame. I figured, ‘f*** it, Cass, I don’t know what I can do for you, but I want to help and you need to help yourself. You need Jesus, brother. I don’t know what you need, but maybe Jesus needs to get involved and we need to pray.’ I drove to Notre Dame and went to the chapel.”
