Enzo Amore and Big Cass are one of the most popular acts in all of WWE, and they owe a lot of their success to Enzo’s impressive mic skills. WWE fans love singing along with Enzo when he introduces the team, but when he first arrived in WWE developmental he wasn’t well liked.
Triple H recently spoke to ESPN about WrestleMania 33 and more, and he revealed that there were people pushing for Enzo to be fired because they found him annoying, but he and Dusty Rhodes decided to keep him.
“There’s been guys that have made it that over the course of a couple of years that were constantly on the cut list,” Levesque said. “Enzo Amore, when I brought him in, everyone at the tryout was saying, ‘Get rid of this kid!’ I was like, ‘He’s got a huge personality. If he can annoy us all this bad here, imagine what he can do on TV.’ … Every time he’d get his review, they’d be like, ‘I’d cut him.’ Dusty [Rhodes] and I would be like, ‘Keep him.’ Look at him now. … Is he ever going to make you money from an in-ring performer standpoint? Probably not. But he’s money on the mic.
Although Big Cass is the muscle of the team, there’s no denying that Enzo is the one with the charisma. Luckily for Enzo, Triple H saw something in him that others didn’t.
“That’s what we’re looking for, and it’s finding that in a guy or girl that can do what we do. The Rock was the same guy that they were chanting “Die Rocky Die!” until he got a personality, and then all of a sudden, he was The Rock.”
This Sunday at WrestleMania 33, Enzo and Big Cass will be wrestling in their biggest match so far when they face off against The Club and Cesaro and Sheamus in a triple threat ladder match with the Raw Tag Team Titles on the line.
