Enzo Amore has had a rough couple of months on WWE Raw after his tag team partner Big Cass turned on him, and apparently he has had some issues backstage, too. According to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Enzo has a lot of heat on him for an incident that happened on a tour bus when the Raw roster was traveling together. It’s not clear whether this happened in Europe where the crew tends to travel in a tour bus, or if it was elsewhere.
While Meltzer can’t confirm exactly what Enzo did to warrant this reaction, the story is that he upset people so much that Roman Reigns kicked Enzo off the bus. The Raw roster also gave Enzo the “Miz treatment” for some time due to his heat. If you’ll recall, when The Miz started in WWE, he wasn’t liked by a lot of people and was forced to dress in the hallway until he got his attitude right.
Meltzer added that a recent Enzo promo about how how his real life was better than his fantasy life (that would be WWE) was considered to be a shoot comment, because Enzo lives in Los Angeles now and he’s having a great time.
It was also reported that Enzo was legitimately not happy that WWE ended his team with Big Cass, probably because he knows that without the team it may be tough for him to make waves on the WWE roster. At Sunday’s Great Balls of Fire PPV, Enzo lost to Cass in about five minutes and didn’t get any offense in. Was it punishment for having heat? Possibly, but it’s obvious Cass was the one WWE was going to push, not Enzo.
This is one of those things you should definitely take with a grain of salt, because we don’t know many of the details, and this is just one report. If this is accurate, though, it’s noteworthy that Reigns was the person to kick Enzo off the bus, because in terms of experience, it’s a pretty young WWE roster and it’s not that surprising that Reigns is considered a leader.
Hopefully this will all blow over, and Enzo can get back to his fantasy life being great as well.
