It's not a good thing when the rest of the locker room has it in their heads that in order to make you look like a viable WWE Superstar, they'll have to be doing the grunt of the work when it comes to your matches. Well, that's exactly the reputation Enzo Amore has earned in the WWE.
Recently, former World Champion Chris Jericho joined Busted Open Radio to discuss a multitude of topics. Among them was the legacy and advice he leaves behind for current WWE Superstars. In one instance, he named Cruiserweight Champion Neville specifically. During the interview, Jericho shared some advice that he gave to the "King of the Cruiserweights". It pertained to working with newly demoted and now roster member of 205 Live, Amore.

As transcribed by ewerestlingnews.com, here’s what Jericho had to say to Neville:
“I told Neville this months ago, I said: ‘There’s gonna come a time when you’re gonna have to make him look good, that’s the job of guys like you and me, it doesn’t matter if he’s good, that’s not his responsibility, that’s yours now. Neville’s gonna have to do anything he can to make that match work the same way that all the great workers in time do that.”
This is not a good sign for the "Certified G". He already has heat backstage for his behavior both within the dressing room and for his actions on social media. Recently, he's been garnering heat for his Twitter rant on his former partner Big Cass' legitimate injury, spending $10K to see the Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor fight, and his inability to show respect in general for the industry that is trying to make him a star.
He's openly being criticized on WWE programming by the announcers and his win/loss record is among the worst in the company. Now he's got former stars like Chris Jericho telling current stars like Neville that he's never going to be as good as he should be, so Neville should prepare to grin and bear it while doing the heavy lifting.
Amore may never be at the top of WWE's totem pole in terms of work rate, but if he can't at least make his fellow stars believe he can carry his weight, his time in WWE will be limited. The rest of the locker room will demand his release.
