Just when you think Enzo Amore's heat died down a little in the WWE, it appears things are not better. In fact, they may be as bad, or worse, than they ever were.
Despite losing the WWE Cruiserweight Title to Kalisto and taking a severe beatdown at the hands of the entire 205 Live roster, many of the talent in the back don't believe "The Certified G" has learned everything they'd like to teach him about being part of the team and respecting the business. That means, for now, he's not really part of the team at all.
Pro Wrestling Votes broke a story that Enzo Amore is still not welcome in the Cruiserweight locker room and that, even though he's been teaming with other Cruiserweights on Raw and 205 Live, and is no longer the champion, he's a despised man backstage.
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
This comes after Amore was kicked off a tour bus by Roman Reigns, took public credit for making Neville leave the WWE, blasted his former partner Big Cass over his legitimate injury, and posted social media updates about his spending habits, all of which rubbed a number of wrestlers the wrong way. Still, Amore doesn't seem to care and it is believed he has a self-created wall around him that means he believes he won't be hurt by how the others in WWE feel about him.
To Amore's defense, he has proven his ability to draw viewers to the Cruiserweight Division. As such, he's got a longer leash than most. It could be this long leash in combination with his attitude that has so many upset with him. Jealousy has to be part of whatever is going on here. After all, how can a guy who is so disrespectful of the business and one of the worst in-ring wrestlers the company employs, get so many opportunities?
The reality is, none of us really know how bad the situation is for Amore. He seems to be getting prime spots on WWE programming but rumors continue to swirl that he's got monstrous heat inside the company. The only way any of us will know for sure is if someone inside the WWE comes out and publicly states what's really going on. That's not likely to happen.
