JBL and Corey Graves confirm rumors about Enzo Amore being hated by the WWE locker room


Things are not looking good for Enzo Amore.

It was reported last month by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Amore has some major heat backstage. If you recall, there was an incident several weeks ago on a tour bus involving Amore. Although it has not been confirmed exactly what caused the incident, it was noted that it had something to do with the business.

This resulted in several Superstars being upset, and Roman Reigns kicking Amore off the bus. Unfortunately for him, this led to Amore reportedly given the "Miz treatment" where he wasn't allowed to dress in the locker room.

Amore was not happy with WWE’s decision to break him up with Big Cass on television. Their current storyline about Amore's real life is better than his fantasy life was said to be partly a shoot because he's having a great time living in Los Angeles, California.

If you watched the latest episode of Bring It to the Table on the WWE Network, Corey Graves and JBL talked about Amore having some backstage heat. JBL noted that he has a good working relationship with Amore but here has been a problem with “him and the rest of the world.” He added, "Besides Miz when the locker room turns on a guy (Enzo), like a human repellent, they usually don't last long afterward.”

When questioned about it by Peter Rosenberg, who hosts the show, Graves stated that he wants Amore on the team but mentioned that Amore does rub people the wrong way backstage, and is the same person on Wednesday afternoon as he is on Raw.

JBL then asked the Raw commentator if he liked Amore. Here is what he had to say (h/t Wrestlezone):

“No! No, I don’t like Enzo. He’s a fine guy, but… Again, the guy you see on Monday nights is that guy 24 hours a day. There’s no off switch. It rubs people the wrong way. If you’re on a European tour 12 days deep, and he’s going on and on and on about how he partied with the weekend in LA, you’re gonna get tired of hearing about it. There’s a limit, and when you’re on the road that much, that’ll wear on your nerves.”

Graves hopes that he “gets back on the good side of everybody,” because he is a valuable part of the team. The WWE commentators believe that WWE should send Amore to the Cruiserweight division and have him be a part of 205 Live on the WWE Network.

This led to Rosenberg pointing out that some may view that as a demotion, but JBL brought up how it was not a demotion for Neville due to him using the platform to be one of the hottest heels in the WWE right now.

Graves thinks that Amore is a big draw and that being on 205 Live could be a good spot for him. JBL added that Kalisto should join the Cruiserweight roster as well.
