Enzo Amore and Big Cass are known as Free Agent Z now. They showed up at the G1 Supercard event in Madison Square Garden not thirty minutes after Bret Hart was attacked by an invading “fan” during the WWE Hall Of Fame across the city.
Amore has made a spectacle of himself during wrestling shows before such as his Survivor Series stunt at the Staples Center. This is one of the reasons why The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that ROH decided to go with that angle.
It was said that ROH tested the angle out and nobody was told about it except for those involved. They kept things off of the camera angle to see if it created buzz. The idea was that if enough fans cared then they could keep doing things with the former WWE Superstars. It is important to noted that NJPW wrestlers weren’t really, but Tama Tonga certainly let on that he was.
The idea is that if there was a buzz, maybe they’d follow up, but if nobody cared, it was so short that people would just assume it was real. It got out of control and right now there are no plans to bring them back, but there are also different people with different viewpoints involved with creative and it’s not clear how the wind will blow.
Enzo and Cass have not been booked for any future ROH events. They haven’t signed a contract and there is reportedly no more plans to use them. This was essentially a trial publicity stunt that few people bought into and the only real reaction seemed to be negative from fans.
