Joey Janela and Enzo Amore ended up in the same Blink-182 concert in July 2019. Fans of both know that they each have their devil-may-care attitude and who’d proudly get into a fight no matter the consequences. Well, not only did they end up in a fight, but they ended up fighting each other.

While it’s been years since the incident, Janela decided to speak about what happened when the “Bad Boy” met the former WWE Cruiserweight champion.

While speaking to Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Janela revealed that he didn’t even immediately realize it was Enzo at first. However, when he started punching him on the arm that’s when Janela’s night turned upside down.

I see some guy with a beer dressed in something that looked like a potato sack walking in front of me. I go, ‘oh sh*t that’s Enzo.’ So I start punching him in the arm and he didn’t take too kindly to that because I spat about him on the internet. The whole situation happened and they got it on video and I looked like the biggest f*cking idiot ever


At the time, Janela was singed to the then new wrestling promotion on the block, AEW. Double or Nothing 2019 was just around the corner and Janela had a lot of eyes on him sense he was part of the new company looking to make its mark in the industry. Unfortunately for Janela, those eyes witnessed the altercation with Enzo and that may’ve led to him getting some hate in the locker room.

Everyone was like, ‘Tony this guy that you just put in the main event with Moxley, this f*cking degenerate, f*cking idiot’,” Janela said. “And that’s where a lot of my, I think a lot of the guys, like the Christopher Daniels, and the Frank Kazarians of the world, those guys who didn’t know me, right there, that was like, ‘yeah, let’s write that guy off.’

Janela came home that night not only with probably a few bruises but also a ruptured career on AEW. Janela hasn’t had the best of luck, recently having his contract expire in May. If the brawl with Enzo can tell us anything is that sometimes it’s best to leave well enough alone.
