Enzo Amore recently explained what was going through his mind when he made a controversial decision.
Enzo Amore had a short but memorable run in WWE. for two years, he got some of the biggest reactions on the main roster. His promos, catchphrases, delivery, and mannerisms made him one of the most eye-catching people in the company.
But his time came to a sudden end due to circumstances surrounding a sexual harassment investigation. But even though he was fired, he still wanted to be the centre of attention. And he accomplished this by doing things that everyone around him told him not to.
On an episode of the DDP Snake Pit podcast (available on AdFreeShows.com), Enzo Amore explained his reasoning behind attending Survivor Series as a fan despite being fired from WWE.
“I was told by my advisors, ‘Don’t do that. Do not buy a ticket to Survivor Series, put on a wig, show up in the second row and stand up on your seat. You’re an idiot.’
I said, ‘Look, I’m really not trying to go back. I’m trying to make a name for myself, but I still want to wrestle and I want to create a character that’s off his hinges that people will watch.’
So I go to Survivor Series and what happened there that made me trend number one in the world was a vision I had. WWE is not going to put this on camera. So when they don’t put it on camera, all the videos of me in the crowd are gonna go viral.
If you’re at home, and you’re watching the crowd, and they’re looking at something, what are you going to do? You’re going to go on your phone, and you’re going to type to see what is the crowd reacting to that they’re not showing on camera? Now all of a sudden, number one trend in the world, right?”
The other highlight from this interview is Enzo Amore’s equally-detailed explanation of how he and Big Cass pulled off their “worked shoot” attack on the Briscoes at ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard in 2019.
