Big Cass suffered a seizure in the lobby at tonight’s House of Hardcore show at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
Cass was scheduled to appear on the show, but during intermission, he collapsed in the lobby in front of fans at the merchandise tables and had a seizure. A doctor tended to him and Tommy Dreamer and Bubba Ray Dudley were by his side. He was eventually responsive and communicating and was taken away in an ambulance.
Afterwards, Tommy Dreamer went into the ring to address the crowd and said, “Please say a prayer for Big Cass. He suffered a seizure. For all you haters, it’s not drug related, I’ve been with him all day. He’s been going through a lot of stuff. Hopefully this will clear up.”
Interested. Dreamer addresses the crowd and says Cass “suffered a seizure,” and makes a point of saying it’s “not drug-related.” pic.twitter.com/ikyj85KamQ

A person who was in attendance at the show, David Onda, posted this info in a Twitter thread:
Scary moment going down at the #HouseofHardcore event in Philly right now as former WWE Star Big Cass collapses in the lobby. Doctor attending to him now.
Tommy Dreamer and Bubba Ray Dudley are by his side. He looks responsive. Scary stuff.
He’s awake, eyes open, looks to be communicating. I’m staying far back to give everyone room, but it’s a positive sign. Send your good vibes to Cass.
Ambulance has arrived. Cass still on his back, but again he looks responsive.
That was scary. It was intermission at the show, the lobby was packed with people checking out the merch tables. Cass went right down into his face. Fans immediately stepped back to give him room. Doc was called. Kind of chaotic. Dreamer was right by his side.
He’s up on one knee now. Good sign.
Cass loaded into an ambulance. And now we wait for additional info.
