Backstage Plans For Enzo Amore And The Cruiserweight Title

Enzo Amore's championship loss on Raw caught the WWE Universe off-guard, but is it part of the WWE's long-term plan?

WWE star Enzo Amore hasn't been shy when it comes to riling up the rest of the cruiserweight division, but that hasn't stopped WWE from making some serious long-term plans for the star.

Amore was able to win the Cruiserweight Championship belt at No Mercy by defeating Neville following a low blow. The next night on Raw, Kurt Angle agreed to let Amore hold a celebration for winning the title since he just won the belt the night before. Amore celebrated by ripping the rest of the cruiserweight division and saying that he made 205 Live relevant.

Then, everything came crashing down for Amore this past Monday night on Raw after losing the Cruiserweight title belt to Kalisto during a lumberjack match.

As you can see in the video below, Amore was not happy about losing his title to Kalisto.


It's very funny to see that Amore didn't want to talk to anyone after all of the talking he does week in and week out on Raw. What's really interesting is that the original plans weren't for Amore to lose the belt to Kalisto. It was for him to defeat Neville in a non-title match. Of course, Amore couldn't wrestle Neville, since Neville ended up walking out during Raw.


Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon made a last minute decision to give Kalisto the Cruiserweight Championship belt, since no one could think of a better idea with no time to spare.

While Kalisto can enjoy being the champion right now, it looks like it won't last long, since Amore is expected to win it back. This is because WWE is currently building 205 Live around him, according to

Could Amore be unhappy with the last second title switch? It's possible, When it comes to former Cruiserweight Champion, Neville, it looks like he's not happy with his role after losing the title to Amore, which could be why he walked out on Monday night.
