Enzo Amore Claims Dusty Rhodes Fired Him From WWE NXT Over A Fart


Former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore was fired from the promotion in 2018 but his departure nearly came years earlier.

Amore signed with WWE in 2012 despite having no professional wrestling experience and would become a two-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion during his tenure


On the Monte & The Pharaoh LI#1 Pro Wrestling Broadcast, Amore recalled getting in trouble with then-NXT head Dusty Rhodes in 2015.

Amore explained how after Baron Corbin cut a promo, the roster was asked for feedback, and when Enzo was asked for input by Rhodes, he responded with a loud fart.

“I showed up to work the next day. What I did not know is literally Dusty Rhodes called Triple H that night and got me fired. When I showed up to work, Dusty Rhodes called Triple H back up and said, ‘Nah, I’m not gonna fire him.’ Then Dusty didn’t talk to me for like two weeks.”

“I’d look at the card, I’m like, ‘Oh, we’re not booked today, Cass,’ and Cass knows, like, ‘You motherf****r!’”

Amore was released from WWE in January 2018 after being accused of sexual misconduct and not disclosing it to higher-ups.

The former Superstar has claimed that he was not aware of the sexual misconduct charges against him until they were made public.
