WWE officially canceled Enzo Amore’s scheduled WWE Cruiserweight title defense Cedric Alexander, as the champ has been hospitalized.
Here’s what Amore said, via Instagram:
“I apologize to the fans who won’t get to see a #G tonight in #Miami… I did everything I could from Toronto to Miami… From negative weather, through customs, to opting out on Diddy’s nye party in Miami, 10 hrs in a hospital, I did everything in my power to make sure I would be in that ring tonight to whoop Cedric Alexander’s hind-end 😡… Ultimately: it was outta my hands. And I got the best freakin hands 👊🏻 Say what you want about Enzo (cause with or with out my per-mish you will 😘, but one thing you can’t say about ya boy: #SAWFT!) Cedric, 1 word to describe you tonight kiddo: #LUCKY! 🤬”
No makeup date has been announced for the title defense.
Amore posted on an Instagram story that he was hooked up to an IV at a hospital in Miami, Florida. Amore was reportedly sick backstage and was sent to the hospital.
The cruiserweight titleholder is a two-time champion since branching out on his own. His second reign has lasted 71 days, with wins over Kalisto twice since he won the belt at WWE TLC.
