In case you are not aware Free Agent Z is the tag team of former WWE talent Enzo Amore and Big Cass. Enzo Amore is now going by nZo and Big Cass under the name of caZXL. The team has since released a shirt promoting their new tag team venture.

The idea was to make this angle seem very real which is why they were landing such stiff punches, but it did not really come off as expected. In fact, people saw right through it and were not impressed, especially the NJPW talent. Security were made aware of the angle and fans instantly saw through it as security didn’t even try to tackle them causing fans to believe it was a work, which it was.
It has been reported that Ring Of Honor did not inform New Japan Pro Wrestling of the shoot style booking. This initially caused Tama Tonga to speak out about ROH on Twitter in tweets that have sense been deleted.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter had the following to say, Tonga & Loa, who had just won, were not told, nor was anyone from the New Japan side told. They saw it, looked like they were mildly disgusted by it, didn’t fall for it and just walked away. Multiple sources have confirmed nobody in New Japan was told about it ahead of time.
