The inaugural year of the Memphis County Fair is off to a bad start after WWE released Big Cass, the event's celebrity spokesperson and only known attendee.
WWE fans first learned about the Memphis County Fair and the Crazy Clown Coaster during June 12's SmackDown Live at FedExForum:
The new coaster is apparently named after the fair employee who thought it was a good idea to invite a heel wrestler to help debut a new attraction when his rival Daniel Bryan would have been the smarter choice for the appearance (We all know he would have said "Yes!"). Bryan, who started his professional wrestling career in Memphis as the American Dragon, is immensely popular in the territory and has Mid-South Fairgrounds experience:
Even before Big Cass was fired, a second year of the Memphis County Fair seemed highly unlikely since it is hard to get Memphians to travel to an event in Parts Unknown. If the fair doesn’t return in 2019, expect the city of Green Bay to emerge as the leading contender to acquire the Crazy Clown Coaster.
