Enzo Amore is receiving support for a return to WWE from one prominent former writer. During his six-year stint with Vince McMahon’s promotion, Enzo partnered with Big Cass to form one of the hottest young tag teams in NXT. The brash loudmouth also had a run as Cruiserweight Champion. Enzo held that title when he was fired. There’s always a chance he could return.
NZO was released by WWE in 2018 after a bevy of issues backstage and away from the ring. Since then, he has been trying to gain momentum as an independent talent. Enzo’s seen mixed results along the way.
Controversial former WWE writer Vince Russo wants to see Enzo Amore return for the Royal Rumble. Russo talked to Chris Featherstone about Rumble surprises. For his money, Russo thinks Enzo would get a massive pop.
“I’m always looking for that huge pop. Knowing the WWE, I just don’t know if they would do business with this individual. I would love to see – and I think it would be a huge pop – I would love to see Enzo in the Royal Rumble. If they hit that music, bro, they’d go nuts. But I don’t know if the WWE would go there.”
Enzo recently teamed with Bully Ray (Bubba Ray Dudley in WWE) to take on Adam Scherr (Braun Strowman) and Erick Redbeard (Erick Rowan) at an independent event on Saturday. Despite being cleared of any wrongdoing due to lack of evidence in a sexual abuse scandal, Enzo has had a hard time getting back into the good graces of the wrestling industry. A Royal Rumble appearance could benefit him greatly.
It remains to be seen if WWE would ever have any interest in bringing back Enzo Amore. That initial run may have been lightning in a bottle. Vince Russo thinks it would be worth it just for the pop it would generate.
