Enzo Amore’s Cruiserweight Championship celebration
Amore cut a promo on dealing with scrutiny and adversity. He said people were jealous, just like his former tag team partner Big Cass, calling his knee feeble. He said he has mainstream power just like John Cena, The Rock and Batista. He put his Certified G jersey in a case and said it should be retired.
He said he made 205 Live relevant because he’s Smacktalker Skywalker. The Cruiserweight division hit the ramp and looked down Amore.
He called Swann a nobody, said Cedric Alexander doesn’t have charisma, said Gran Metalik isn’t under 205 pounds with his gut. Neville then came out as well looking like a zombie. Amore said Neville wasn’t a real man.
Neville said Amore alienated everyone and he was put on 205 Live because no one else would have him. Amore said he repaid everyone by getting eyes on 205 Live and making them stars. Neville walked down the ramp and Amore said he had a no-contact clause signed by Kurt Angle.
He said the reason they’re out in the main event is because he’s a star. Neville attacked Amore and threw him head-first into the frame. He then threw him into the barricade, then another barricade. Amore tried to leave up the ramp, and the Cruiserweight division stalked him back to the ring.
Neville super kicked Amore in the face, then hit the Red Arrow before Raw went off the air.
