• Raw’s Love Storyline An Immature Rib On Someone?
During a recent appearance on “The Taz Show podcast, ECW Legend Taz discussed the Enzo Amore – Nia Jax love storyline on Raw. Below is what Taz said:
“We saw some stuff backstage with Enzo and Nia Jax. They got this whole thing going, a little love story over here. You always get this in WWE. That’s like the shtick. I don’t think it’s just the office gets a kick out of stuff and oh it will be funny to see them kiss. So there’ll be a make-out gimmick coming down the road. You’re gonna have to wait for it.You people have no idea some of those angles like how immature they can…Not the talent. And I don’t want to name names. I’m just telling you the people sometimes who come up and approve this stuff, this type of thing, it’s a little.I hope they do this right and I hope they don’t get goofy with this. That’s what I’m worried about. I could see it now where Enzo’s taking her out to some fancy dinner and the cameras there and they have dinner at this fancy place on Raw and then they got to hurry up and get done with the pre tape of that so they could take table for THREE. Those who get it, get it. Those who don’t get it, don’t get it. I think some of this is a rib on somebody. That’s all I’m saying. I don’t know who. I might have ideas. I’ll bite my tongue right now but I’ve just given my thoughts.
Nia is over. Nia is a legit talent. So don’t mess her up. She’s the real deal. She’s getting better and better and better and they’ve been pushing her for a good amount. Don’t do some of this silly a$$ immature dumb sh*t. Keep it real.”
