Enzo Amore’s recent injury that occurred at WWE Payback was revealed as a concussion, however, the details of how long his recovery will take has not yet been stated by WWE.
Whilst many might assume that a simple rematch between Enzo & Cass and The Vaudevillians will go ahead at the next available opportunity (e.g. the Extreme Rules PPV in June), concussions tend to sideline wrestlers depending on the severity of them, and given the bad press that WWE has received for encouraging wrestlers to compete with these types of injuries, it is likely that Enzo may be out of the ring for a few months.
In Daniel Bryan’s recent retirement speech, he stated that the main reason for his retirement was due to the multiple concussions he had incurred over the course of his career, something which his doctors had reportedly told him was life threatening if he were to continue wrestling.

In light of this, many eyes will be fixated on how WWE handles this situation and in particular, addresses Enzo Amore’s injury.
Whilst currently billed as a tag team competitor, WWE may need to reconsider their booking of Big Cass if Enzo Amore is unable to return to the ring for an extended period.
This could potentially create a major opportunity for him to receive a singles push on the main roster.
Whilst this is all speculation at this stage, it is important to consider how WWE is changing its approach to the fitness and well-being of its superstars, and therefore, this might in this instance create a chance for Big Cass to develop his gimmick and in-ring ability as a singles competitor.
Considering the ever-increasing list of injured superstars, it might be prudent for WWE to change its plans in this case in order to protect Enzo Amore, and perhaps elevate Big Cass simultaneously.
