It's safe to say that many WWE superstars do not like the current Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore. It's become well known to the WWE Universe that Amore and his peers simply don't get along these days. Since breaking up with Big Cass, it appears as though Amore's ego has grown to such lengths that the locker room can't stand The Certified G anymore.
This tweet from WrestleVotes told plenty of the story regarding Amore and his backstage tension with other superstars:
Regarding Enzo, I'm hearing the backstage heat is still real. As of last week, he was still not allowed in the locker room.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) October 18, 2017
Well, there are even more developments now about Amore's rivalry with some of his co-workers. According to TMZ.com, Amore has received his own locker room. He explained the situation clear-cut.
"Bro, I got my own locker room—literally. That is a fact. Poppy in L.A...I don't talk to nobody. You know why? 'Cause if you ain't talkin' money, what the hell you talkin' bout?!...Being a champion, you wake up in the morning and you piss excellence. The only vowel I'm concerned with is 'I.'"
Amore is certainly doing a good job sounding like a true heel, but the reports of the heat backstage suggest that he wasn't cutting a promo in that interview. Amore has been one of the WWE's top trash talkers on the microphone for some time, but he's clearly damaged some relationships with his fellow wrestlers.
It'll be interesting to see if Amore cleans it up, or how the WWE tries to settle this mess. It's been a long time since an entire locker room hated one superstar altogether. You'd probably have to go back to the 90s when Shawn Michaels found new and exciting ways to make the entire locker room despise him.
But the good news for Amore is that Vince McMahon and the creative team seem to have full confidence in him. Despite his limited skills as a wrestler, Amore is one of the top promo-cutting stars around.
And if he has his own locker room, Amore should be able to avoid causing further strain in the relationships with his fellow wrestlers.
