While Enzo Amore continues to make the news for seemingly all the wrong reasons, his former tag team partner Big Cass has shed some light on the reality of what most in the WWE Universe do not get to see on a day-to-day basis.
During an appearance on the Sam Roberts' podcast, Cass discussed any backstage heat people think he might have with Enzo after his split and the "Certified G's" Twitter rant about Cass' injury. Cass explained:
“Enzo is Enzo, the guy you see on TV is the guy that you see in real life. Enzo wouldn’t be in the spot he’s in, he wouldn’t have made it this far if he didn’t act the way he does, so there is good with the bad. No, I don’t think so, I don’t think I have distanced myself from him. The storyline has kind of taken on its own thing. Once it started being talked about and people started talking about it on the internet, then they are like: ‘oh really, people talk about it? Well okay, if it’s not real, let's pretend it is real and put it more out there on TV.”
For those that are having trouble understanding what Cass means by this, he's suggesting the WWE heard that the Internet, fans, and other outside outlets believed Amore's over-the-top personality was causing friction between him and Big Cass. Even though it wasn't, the WWE chose to run with what people believed was a real life issue and started working it into a story. Amore is no different than the person he always was, the WWE is just opting to talk about it now and they didn't before. They're talking about it because it works for the storyline.

This seems to fall in line with the fact that while people are blasting Amore for his antics, he's continually receiving prominent screen time on Raw and 205 Live. If Amore really was in hot water with the boys in the back or WWE management, the chances he'd be receiving such a legitimate push is slim to none.
If anyone would be accustomed to the personality of Amore, it would be Big Cass. Just because they are no longer on the same side in terms of a wrestling angle, doesn't mean they've all of a sudden stopped talking to each other. Amore is Amore and Cass is Cass. They're different, but like salt and pepper, they work well together and know how to get along.
