When Enzo Amore was released from the WWE, many believed that the former Cruiserweight Champion would be done with the industry of professional wrestling.
Amore had some legal issues outside of the ring that plagued his public image, and WWE saw this as a last straw situation before making the decision to release Amore. Several months later, the accusations have been dropped and all is well with Amore.
In fact, Amore has begun a career as a rapper and wrote a song targeting his accuser, the professional wrestling media and many more.
After getting all the negativity behind him, Amore stated that he's ready to begin “working diligently toward his next venture in the entertainment industry.”
It turns out that next venture could actually be in the professional wrestling world - but not with WWE. House Of Glory Wrestling, and small indy promotion, has announced that Amore will be making an appearance for them this year:
Amore is being advertised for the "High Intensity 7" event on Friday August 17th in New York. It does not specify if Amore will be wrestling or simply making an appearance.
He is being billed as "The Real One formerly known as Enzo Amore." It should be interesting to see what role Amore is going to play at High Intensity 7.
Amore began his professional wrestling career back in 2012. He trained with Triple H's personal trainer and was able to send in a workout/promo tape to WWE that got him noticed and a shot in NXT.
He was paired up with Big Cass and they formed one of the biggest fan favorite tag teams in the promotion. On the RAW after WrestleMania 32 in 2016, Cass and Amore were called up to the main roster and begun their pursuit of tag team gold.
Unfortunately, Cass and Amore never got the opportunity to win the RAW Tag Team Championships. They would split up in a major storyline later down the road in 2017.
Amore was moved to the Cruiserweight division in an attempt to revitalize the 205 Live show which wasn't doing as well as WWE had hoped.
While Amore definitely brought more eyes to the program, his success was short lived as he was subsequently released by WWE after the allegations.
It should be interesting to see what role Amore plays at High Intensity 7, and if he plans on continuing his wrestling career.
For Amore to make his first return to wrestling for a promotion as small as House Of Glory, as opposed to other options like Ring Of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling or IMPACT Wrestling; it certainly shows how far he has fallen since his WWE release.
