It’s been a while since Enzo Amore could refer to himself as a WWE Superstar, but lately he and Big Cass have been making noise on social media.
Enzo was one of WWE’s most controversial figures throughout his run with WWE, as it was rumored that he rubbed people the wrong way, and often had backstage heat.
The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion recently opened up about his backstage heat on Keepin It 100 with Konnan, and he said that he thinks it was jealousy that created the heat.
“Honestly, I think that what creates heat is jealousy. I think hate is nothing but love disguised as jealousy. It’s either a relatable quality that you see in that person, or it’s that insecurity that you have within yourself that you feel is necessary to either lash out or talk s**t. For me, the way I was raised we didn’t talk s**t. When I came into wrestling, I couldn’t explain to my friends back home that I was putting on spandex and was losing to a guy with muscles in like 8-10 seconds. All my homies would clown me. I knew I couldn’t explain it to my friends but it was all worth it with the light at the end of the tunnel. When I am wearing spandex and getting beat in front of 15 people in a little armory and then I am in front of 85,000 people at a WrestleMania and they’re saying ‘And You Can’t Teach That’ with all of us, everything was all worth it. That was the light at the end of the tunnel, which was the beautiful thing.”
Despite the fact that his WWE run didn’t end all that well, Enzo says that he wouldn’t change a thing.
“Honestly, no. Not at all. I don’t live with any regret. I opened up every single NXT show for two-and-a-half years. We were held on to NXT in a time that was any longer than our peers. We watched every single one of our peers get called up that was on the show that we debuted in from NXT. Every one of them left. We were in locker rooms where we were watching the core number of people that started with NXT on the road. Then they held on to us for as long as they did.”
