Enzo Amore made headlines for being difficult to work with, something that reportedly led to his unceremonious exit from Major League Wrestling. Now the REAL1 is telling fans his side of the story.

Fightful previously reported that MLW released Enzo from his contract because he refused to work with some stars and kept turning down pitches. The REAL1 then came forward with shocking claim that he was working with the promotion on a handshake deal.

Most recently, the former WWE superstar posted a video on his Twitter wherein he offered his side of the story. Enzo said there was no truth to the reports that he parted ways with MLW over creative differences.

He claimed the owner booked him into a title match without his knowledge. The REAL1 said he never had a contract with MLW in the first place. Enzo further stated MLW asked him to bury Richard Holliday who had just come back after beating cancer, but he refused to do so because “cancer is a sensitive subject.”


“I ain’t about to talk sh*t and bury people. I just want to get out in front of this thing and let it be known, okay? Like yo, I was at the 2300 when a stack of advertisements saying I was fighting for the MLW title was dropped on my table. And I sent the picture of the flyer to the owner.

I’m like, ‘What is this bro? I’m fighting for your title?’ And he’s like, ‘Oh yeah, sorry it slipped through the cracks. I’m wearing too many hats here at MLW. I totally forgot that you said you never wanted to fight for the title.’ Oh, you forgot bro. Don’t play yourself dude. I’m not fighting for the title but you played those fans when you put that advertisement out there for something that I never agreed upon. I’m not under contract with you. And so, when you sent me creative direction to bury a guy [Richard Holliday] who just beat cancer.

Like, look I do a lot of things on the microphone. I talk a lot of sh*t but that ain’t one of them. Sorry, cancer is a sensitive subject. And I didn’t wanna bury a guy who just beat cancer. So there was nothing left for me to do at MLW. I put over Microman on the way out the door like a Certified G that I am. And I laid down… 1, 2, 3 and they put me off TV. Don’t try to catch me with the headlines saying that you fired me when I’ve never been under contract with you. I’ve just been a man of my word bro.”

It was also reported that, “Enzo had been on a per appearance deal with MLW for just over a year and became heavily featured on the show.” Enzo last competed for the promotion on February 4, 2023, at MLW Superfight 2023.
