nZo, formerly known as Enzo Amore, talked about the hardships of working with WWE creative while with the company during an interview with Inside the Ropes.
He recalled having an arguing with Vince McMahon over a promo.
“Me vs. [Big] Cass at Great Balls of Fire,” nZo said. “The entire timeline [of our feud] lined up with [“That’s Life” by Frank Sinatra]. Riding high in April, shot down in May, but I know I’m going to change that tune when I’m back on top, back on top in June. And if nothing’s working come this here July, I’m going to roll myself up in a big ball and die. It’s like me and Cass break up, we’re riding high in April in WrestleMania, shot down in May. I’m found backstage, but I know I’m going to change that tune when I’m back on top of a big show in June. July, you know, me and Cass wrestle at Great Balls of Fire.
“So that’s what I used in the promo, and I had to fight tooth and nail with Vince McMahon, who handed me this sh*tty promo. This writer handed me a sh*tty promo. I marched into Vince’s office at Great Balls of Fire and I said ‘I ain’t f*cking saying this. This is what I want to f*cking say.’ He didn’t like it. He didn’t want to do it. I fought again. I fought again. And Vince said ‘Okay.’ And I went out there and I delivered what I believe to be one of my best promos ever.”
