WWE legend Big Cass was rushed to hospital after he suffered a seizure at a wrestling event in Philadelphia.

The seven-foot American fell to the ground and started convulsing in front of shocked fans at Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore event.

The 31-year-old collapsed in the lobby area before he was due to appear on the show

The 31-year-old, real name William Morrissey, collapsed in the lobby area at around 10pm while he was chatting to the fans.

He was treated by medical staff and reports claim he was awake when he was taken away by an ambulance.

But there has no update on his condition since.

After the incident, Dreamer made a special announcement to confirm that the incident was not drug related.
