Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.
Following stories that WWE Superstar Enzo Amore was almost cut from NXT back in the day, was impossible to coach, had backstage heat that got him kicked off a bus, had backstage heat for an embarrassing interaction with a stripper, had backstage heat at SummerSlam and “believes his own bullshit”, it turns out that Enzo — get this — may have even more backstage heat. Is that his gimmick at this point? Pretty soon he’s gonna be getting dressed in a rotisserie oven.
The latest reports come from Wrestling Observer Live and explain that Amore’s latest problem is bragging about his life in Los Angeles when he’s not on the road.
If you follow him on social media, you may have seen his Instagram post about paying $10,000 to be live for Mayweather vs. McGregor. Bonus points for posting the barcode for his tickets and everything!
They note that him going to the fight probably didn’t help his standing in the locker room, but it’s worth noting that WWE.com covered the story themselves and linked to his mark photos with celebrities like Jamie Foxx, Chance the Rapper and, uh, Jeremy Piven. Maybe Enzo got heat for having a Dot Com piece about his weekend? Who even knows at this point.
You can’t blame a guy for spending his money and free time however he wants, even if it means paying 10 grand to cosplay classic heel Rock at a boxing match and cheese with the Piv, but I think even Enzo fans could piece together why the guy’s personality might be in constant conflict with everyone around him. Worst case scenario, buy a smaller shark cage and hang him above the arena for Raws so he doesn’t make anyone else mad.
