• Enzo Amore Says WWE Started Rumors About His Return
There was a rumor a few months back that Enzo Amore & Big Cass are going to return to WWE and be a part of NXT as NXT is going to war with AEW Dynamite.
However, Triple H quickly turned down the rumor and accused Enzo of spreading false rumors.
During a recent interview with The Hannibal TV, Enzo claimed that those rumors were “definitely” started by WWE. Below is what he said:
“That report definitely came from them. I didn’t start any rumors. Let’s just be clear about that. I do have confirmation that it was not obviously me, it was somebody in their organization. My phone has been ringing. I’m not saying it’s WWE. I’m not saying it’s the other organizations. I’m just saying, I’m a free agent in the pro wrestling world.”
