Enzo Amore is a man who's no stranger to controversy, and it reared its head once again recently when the Certified G, now known simply as nZo or real1, would appear in the middle of a ring with the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
But does Enzo Amore plan on defending that title on the indies? We spoke with the "former" Cruiserweight Champion and asked all about it!
Sportskeeda meets Enzo Amore
You can watch our entire chat with Enzo Amore below, where nZo gives an update on Big Cass, discusses COVID-19 and much more.
When discussing whether he'll defend the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on the indies, Enzo Amore said it was all a "rib" and that he had the title with him as he was going to Gallows' place for Talk N' Shop A-Mania - but he didn't rule it out.
"Why did I bring the title with me? Because I went to Gallows and Anderson’s house to do Talk N' Shop , it was a god**** rib.”
“Lord knows what the future holds. Just know that I have the title, I’m the realest champ in the room, I never lost it. I pride myself so much on being a real one.”
Amore also opened up about working with Brian Pillman Jr, and returning to the ring to face Ricky and Kerry Morton alongside Pillman Jr.
“I meet again Ricky Morton [and] Kerry Morton, who I have a relationship with, who I speak to on the internet, and when I see them, they’re wrestling Brian Pillman jJr. on Friday, and they don’t have a tag team partner for Pillman yet. That’s how I ended up back in a wrestling ring.
“So I wrestled Ricky Morton, Kerry Morton on the fly, okay? On the fly, with Brian Pillman Jr! Listen, it wasn’t a five-star match, people, but it was what it was and what it was was real and it was fun, and I had a blast and the people loved it.”
Amore also revealed how he wants to give back to wrestling now, and how he's happy to wrestle for free on independent shows.
“I’ve achieved all the things I wanted to in wrestling, now it’s time for me to give back to the business in any way that I can. So I find that getting in the ring with guys for free at my gym, getting in the ring for free on an independent show against Ricky Morton, with the fan love, that covers gas, you know, these guys fly me in but I’m gonna pay for everything else along the way.”
