Enzo Amore was hired by the WWE after Triple H saw this YouTube video

Published 3 Comments

Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady made their WWE main roster debuts on Monday night as the WWE Universe was finally treated to their incredibly entertaining style of tag team. 

The former NXT fan favourites, arguably the most over act in the entire developmental promotion alongside former Women's Champion Bayley, Enzo and Cass are bound to be a huge hit with the WWE fan base.

However, they didn't start off as wrestling superstars, none of them even wrestled before they caught the eye of the WWE. In fact, Enzo only got hired because of a YouTube video Triple H saw of him, and you can watch it here. (Scroll down to view)

Amore, real name Eric Arndt, was a high school and college football player before he ever got near a wrestling ring. After completing his studies, Arndt got a real job and started working out at DeFranco's Gym in New Jersey.

Some time later, DeFranco's then became a firm favourite of WWE head honcho Triple H when the company was ever travelling around the area.

This led to Arndt begging the owner of the gym, John DeFranco, to put him in contact with Hunter. DeFranco refused, instead telling Eric to put together a video that he would send to Triple H if it was good enough.

Obviously, it was, and the rest is history as Enzo Amore stepped out in front of 15,00 adoring fans on Monday night in Dallas, Texas.

Well, here is the video that got Enzo his foot in the door at the WWE.

That thing is a work of art, absolutely glorious. And, if we needed any proof, that rap just confirms that Enzo could absolutely pull off the Doctor of Thuganomics gimmick if the WWE ever wanted to raise it from the dead.
