Back in January, Monday Night RAW celebrated its 25th birthday with a very special show.
The programme was broadcast from two different venues – the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn and the Manhatten Center in New York.
Of course, the current stars turned out for RAW 25, while a number of Hall of Famers and legends also joined in the fun.
PLANS FOR RAW
For such a big show, WWE and Vince McMahon were always going to plan something special.
That’s why the likes of The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin and D-Generation X were all present.
Despite all the huge names returning and a stacked roster ready to impress on RAW’s birthday, it was actually Enzo Amore who arguably would have had the biggest part of the show.
WWE’S PLANS FOR ENZO
Of course, these plans were never used due to his suspension hours before the event. But five months on, Amore has revealed the massive story WWE had for him at RAW 25.
It involved other legends including Ted Dibiase, APA and the Dudley Boyz causing trouble before Nia Jax eventually made the save for Enzo.
If this had happened, it would have been epic.
REVEALING IT ALL TO STONE COLD
Speaking recently on The Steve Austin Show, “The Realist Guy In The Room” revealed all about that night.
“You [Austin] were the first person I saw,” Amore said, per Wrestling Inc.
“I turned the corner when I got to the building and you were standing there with Bubba Ray Dudley, who I debuted against, who I still talk to as far as veterans in the business.
“I was talking to you guys, and then I go on and do rehearsals with Goldust as me and Goldust have a match on Raw 25 and then The Dudleys will come out and will put me through a table, and they have all this planned.”
That was only the first part of the plan, as Enzo explains.
“I am going to lose my title to Ted Dibiase and the APA in their poker game backstage with the Million Dollar Man,” he continued.
“Then, I go out to the ring with no title and I wrestle Goldust one on one, like, are you kidding me? Then, the Dudley Boys are going to come out? It’s the best day of my life.”
As if that wasn’t cool enough, the show would have ended with Enzo getting his title back, through a very familiar friend.
“Then, I come back, Nia Jax wins my title back for me because I lose it playing poker. She gives my title back to me at the end of the night.”
Wow. The whole story would have been a great watch, but of course – we never got to see it. On top of that, Amore lost his big moment.
“I had the longest thread on Raw 25. I was going to be on the show being featured more than any of them, and they had to rewrite that whole entire show at what, 5:30, 6pm.”
