Sean Waltman (X-Pac) has a storied career in the WWE, WCW and other promotions. Even more so, he has a storied legacy of troubled times outside the ring. Not always on the positive side of the wrestling industry, X-Pac has never been one to keep quiet about the comings and goings of the business. Recently, he was the co-host on the latest episode of WZ Daily, and he had some direct answers, namely in regards to Enzo Amore.
After discussing whether or not he could ever see himself returning to the WWE, Waltman said yes. But, when asked if it would be as a Cruiserweight, he quickly shot down the idea. He said, "No, I’m not. Definitely not. Nope. I am not saying I won’t come back and do something but I can’t even imagine doing that."
Perhaps viewing his response as a criticism of the Cruiserweight Division itself, the host then followed up by asking about Enzo Amore and his role with the Cruiserweights and on a show like 205 Live. For Amore, Waltman feels the situation is different. "It’s fine. Everyone else is doing all the fancy stuff. He just needs to figure out how to mesh well with them in there. It’s not really his style but that’s ok. It’s just his style," he explained.
One has to think his response means that if X-Pac would return to WWE, it would need to be in a role that he deems worthy of his "star power". Clearly, he doesn't believe the Cruiserweight Division is the right fit. While Waltman is likely not a draw for the WWE Universe he once was, the WWE has been bringing back old names and faces and X-Pac is in the best shape of his life. A return would not be the most shocking of events.
The other explanation for his response could be that Waltman believes in his older age, he's not able to keep up with the talent currently in the Cruiserweight Division. Some of the WWE's highest flyers are attempting to make that brand a go-to destination, including names like Neville, Cedric Alexander, and Rich Swann. Now adding the likes of Amore, known mostly for his ability to light up a crowd with his skills on the mic, the idea of Waltman keeping up is a hard idea to wrap one's head around.
But, if Amore can do it, his success would open the door to all sorts of other opportunities for smaller wrestlers to make a name for themselves, even if they aren't the best in-ring talents in the company. If X-Pac were to return, the division would likely get a bigger boost than if he returned to regular programming.
