I'm amazed every time I see RF is still doing the same godawful interviews he has been doing for more than 15 years now. Who pays for that shit ?

 

("he broke his own leg trying to counter a wristlock" Holy shit.)

Everyone: Save yourself the trouble of watching this horrid preview video and giving RF hits - just read the transcript instead: http://wrestlinginc....t-to-wrestlers/

Even my wife has sort of soured on him and she enjoyed his shtick. That is how I know things may be hitting a wall for him.  She even said the other day he looked hung over or drunk, not as funny.

 

I don't know. The stuff I read has sort of turned me off to him a bit, but I try not to put too much stock into things I don't know for sure.  If they split him from Cass and don't latch him to someone else it will feel like a death sentence to that character to me.

Big Show certainly didn't look thrilled to be partnered with Enzothis week. And feuding with the Good Brothers? Talk about dumping all your unwanted eggs in one unwanted basket. 

 

Of the whole bunch, I feel worst for Show. He looked to be in tremendous shape for the potential of facing Shaq and when that fell through, the company barely did anything with him aside from that pretty good RAW match against Strowman.

 

If they move him to SD, I'm not sure there'd be chemistry, but I wouldn't hate seeing motivated Show vs. Styles (could it be worse than any of the Styles/Owens snorefests?) or even Show vs. Nakamura (the clash of styles would be either a total mess or kind of entertaining).

I like how excited Gotch seemed that Enzo was selling so well for him.

That probably didn't happen much for guys his size on the main roster.

Is there a huge guy in NXT who would benefit from being his new partner and could put over Cass, then Enzo could kinda go back to what he was doing?

I wonder, how do wrestlers justify getting pissed at Enzo for bringing his boys backstage and taking photos but doing shoot interviews airing their dirty laundry is fine? If Enzo charged his friends $20 per photo would that make it okay?

WWE could kill shoot interviews with the snap of their fingers if they really wanted to by having wrestlers sign NDAs. I'm sure they have reasons for not doing that.

I have really like Enzo's promos recently. They are earnest and they have a pizzazz to the, It sounds authentic and are entertaining. People are surprised that a guy that looks like Enzo actually acts like a guy who looks like Enzo. That's ridiculous. Fuck all these strait-laced, sterile dudes. Enzo's got personality and he should do his thing. I think Enzo & Big Show have been great. Enzo is a great face in peril and does a great glassy eye sell. Enzo feels like pro wrestling and does pro wrestling. We need more pro wrestlers and Enzo is one of them.

Enzo and Cass both back in the news over the past 24 hours...
 

Back in January, Eric Ardnt (Enzo Amore) was suspended by WWE when it was revealed that there was a police investigation regarding an allegation of rape against him. And days later, WWE made the decision to release him. WWE management was completely unaware of the allegations and the criminal investigation into the October 2017 incident until media outlets started to reach out to the company for comments on the situation. This was while the company was putting together Raw 25 Today, Ardnt posted letter from his lawyer on Twitter, announcing that police do not have sufficient evidence to carry on with an investigation and that the case is now considered closed.

Meanwhile today...
 

As has been previously reported, Big Cass is said to be in trouble backstage for going off-script during a segment on Smackdown. He was intended to boot the little person impersonating Daniel Bryan, but instead continue to assault him even after officials (and Vince McMahon) told him not to.

In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio (via Sportskeeda), Bryan Alvarez said that Cass is said to have “massive” heat on him backstage, and that it comes from multiple incidents.

He said: "This is not the first time stupid stuff has happened with Cass"

I am wondering if Meltzer's original report from way back that Cass wasn't popular backstage is true after all...although we have had no more reports about him being a Trump supporter. :rolleyes:

 

If Enzo really is free and clear of this sexual assault allegation, and if Cass really is being a pain backstage and killing his singles push, I wonder if there is any chance WWE brings Enzo back and puts them back together?  Part of me thinks that might be the only scenario in which Cass is of any real use.  Enzo does the talking and takes a beating and gets rag-dolled, Cass gets the hot tag and cleans house with a couple of simple power moves.  Their formula seemed to work and there is no denying they were crazy popular and moved a ton of merchandise, which seems to be an important factor to WWE.

 

Or are they both labelled too toxic backstage so Enzo stays gone and Cass gets pushed down the card?  Or are the rumors of Cass having heat just rumors, and he continues to get a big push because of his big size?  I didn't see the segment with him and Daniel Bryan this week...the way it read it sounds like it was designed to make him look bad...was it, or was it just to further their rivalry?

I think Enzo would need to show he can make better choices. He needs to do a year in Impact and show maturity and then I think they would consider it.

Wasn't part of the reason Enzo got the boot so fast because he knew about the accusation beforehand but didn't tell WWE, and they got blindsided? I can see them not giving him a second chance just based on that alone.

Bryan destroyed him in that segment and was already talking about bigger things. I think that was set up to end that feud.

According to his lawyer he wasn't aware of the investigation. I don't know if I believe that but that I out there.

Fair point. I guess the question would be if WWE knows or believes differently, and if that's a dealbreaker.

 

I tend to think they will stay away regardless, it's not like he's been missed and, fair or not, they'd likely see bad PR if they did bring him back.

I think they will take him back eventually. I think he will need a prove it run with Impact or another company first but he moves shirts and draws ratings. There are few guys that can do that and I think they will talk themselves into it down the road if they get reports that he's behaving.

There's no reason to bring him back.  More trouble than he's worth at this point.

Yeah as mentioned Bryan absolutely destroyed Cass this week. But then he's in a MITB Qualifier vs. Samoa Joe for the last spot next week so I guess we'll see. That should probably be a Joe squash regardless, especially if Cass is going in injured from Bryan's attack.
