Perhaps no WWE Superstar is in the news more than Enzo Amore. He'll claim that's a good thing because people are keeping an eye on him, but in the process of drawing attention to himself, he's making enemies left, right and center in the WWE locker room.
He's been kicked off a tour bus, insulted the industry that pays him well, trashed-talked a number of other WWE Superstars on social media, spent thousands of dollars on sneakers and show tickets, and he's doing all this while being one of the worst in-ring performers the WWE employs. Something seems off about this equation.
We can't possibly list them all, but here are Five Ridiculous Things Enzo Amore Has Really Done.
5. Suggested India Had No Good Food
We're not sure if Amore's Instagram post about having to tour with the WWE to India is meant to earn him heel heat or if he's just stupid, but he posted a comment that he was upset he was booked for India and better take a bunch of @Digiorno pizzas with him. Did he really just suggest the food there was disgusting?
It's not even that India doesn't have pizza, but it's an interesting way for Amore to smash an entire country with one tag. Whining about having to go also refutes one of the items later on this list.
4. Called Out Corey Graves For Uncontrollable Injury
You might ask what the point of trying to get heat with a guy who can't wrestle is. The whole idea of heat is so that when the two combatants finally square off, the fans want to see one guy get the tar kicked out of them. Perhaps Enzo doesn't quite grasp that concept since he went after Corey Graves who isn't a wrestler.
A few jabs back and forth and before you knew it, Amore was mocking Graves for not cutting it in wrestling which isn't true. Graves could have been a big star if not for injuries that forced him into early retirement. To use that as an insult was low-class but very much something Amore would do.
3. Got Himself Kicked Out of the Locker Room
Even after getting kicked off a tour bus, Amore didn't learn his lesson and continued to rub fellow WWE talent the wrong way. So much so he was booted from the dressing room and to defend that situation, he claimed to have his own dressing room now.
It's clear as day that Amore alienated himself from pretty much everyone and he's a wrestler on an island. When his schtick gets old, he could up a creek without a paddle since he has no friends to go to bat for him.
2. Called Himself WWE's Hardest Worker
Your looking at “The Marianara 🍝 Rivera of the WWE” .... #TheRealestChamp defends his title every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, & closes it out in the #MainEvent of the #ZoShow (aka #205Live,) every damn Tuesday. 👊🏻 Now I know I told you kids to “work smarter- not harder,” but that’s only because I’m a #CertifiedG.. & the #G is for genius 💡! #TheHardestWorkingManInTheWWE is a #CertifiedG & let me be Frank, cause #iGotTheSAUCE: I work smart, but I’m a good guy, so I feel for those... I feel for the incompetent bunch of #LoserWeights who can’t compete, because THE ONLY THING I LOSE IS SLEEP! #YouCantTeachThat #G💩
We can't say for certain his claim to being the hardest worker in the WWE isn't true, but it doesn't seem likely. At every turn, Amore is complaining about something, his latest being the WWE booking him to go to India.
Until he starts doing media interviews, Make-A-Wish appearances and other such personal appearances for WWE, which they often ask of their biggest stars, he's not the hardest worker. He perhaps plays harder and spends his money faster but that may be the only reason he wants to work as often as he does.
1. Claimed To Be Responsible For Neville Quitting
When Neville walked away from the WWE, there was no doubt in the minds of many that part of the issue was Neville needing to work with Amore. That likely wasn't the only reason, but Amore took credit anyway. At a WWE house show in Regina Saskatchewan, Amore took the microphone before losing his match against Kalisto and said "I took care of Cass, then made Neville quit. You're nothing."
Since the WWE has been denying Neville has actually quit (rather, they haven't talked about it at all) it is interesting that Amore would be permitted to say something like that. If he wasn't supposed to, he might have violated one of the many policies WWE has in place for what the Superstars can and cannot say.
