WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore with Zo Train member Noam Dar...

What's the story?

The WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore tackles the "elephant in the room" on the third installment of Straight To The Source; which airs on the WWE Network after Monday Night Raw tonight. He'll set the record straight on the tour bus incident from the summer of 2016.

Take a look at the preview of tonight's episode below:

In case you didn't know...

Straight To The Source with Corey Graves debuted on the WWE Network on December 2nd with Roman Reigns as his first guest. Unlike shows such as Bring It To The Table, Legends With JBL, and the Stone Cold Podcast, the actual questions come from the WWE Universe.

Since it's debut, one other episode aired with Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss.

The heart of the matter

In the summer of 2016, it was widely reported that during a European tour, Roman Reigns (a wrestler seen as the leader of the locker room today) kicked Enzo Amore off a tour bus for his inappropriate behavior.

As shown in the preview clip for tonight's Straight To The Source, Enzo simply states that it wasn't true. If he did get kicked off the tour bus, you wouldn't have seen him on the next show.

Enzo further explained that since the WWE is a Fortune 500 company, they would provide the means of transportation on such tours. If he was kicked off that bus, there wouldn't have been any way he would have appeared on the show the very next evening.

What's next?

Enzo was supposed to defend his WWE Cruiserweight Championship last week against Cedric Alexander, but came down with the flu and the plans changed.


Author's take

If you watch Corey Graves in that preview clip, it doesn't seem like he's buying what Enzo is trying to sell on the situation, and I'm not buying it either.

My complete guess on the situation is that he was kicked off the tour bus, and then had to hitch a ride with maybe the referees or someone who may not have traveled on the tour bus with the WWE Superstars.

Also in that clip, Enzo seems to be in full character (which appears to be how he acts all the time) so he could just be putting up a front claiming the WWE wouldn't do that to one of its biggest stars.
