In November at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore caused a stir at ringside after purchasing a ticket and performing his old entrance promo during the Sheamus & Cesaro vs. Authors of Pain match. Security had to escort him out of the building and Vince McMahon and others were reportedly furious.
Amore discussed why he did what he did at the West Side Comedy Club last night.
“Why did I do it? It had nothing to do with my music,” Enzo told the crowd. “I’ll tell you why I did it. Because I knew for a fact that Vince McMahon would hate it more than anything in the world, but he would respect the f–k out of it. That’s why I did it. Because it was about one person, and that was it. Because I proved to him that I could beat him at his own game of statistics and numbers, and this & that & the other, and I don’t even work for your company. I broke no laws, I bought a ticket and with that said, I did purchase my ticket. … $2,500. My name was on the ticket, they could’ve found me.”
“So I’m looking at her, and I go, ‘Lisa, I’m a good person and you know it.’ We had this moment, it was the most intimate moment I’ve had with a woman in years. I look her in the eyes and I go, ‘I’m a good person and you know it.’ She goes, ‘You gotta go see Vince.’ I go, ‘I don’t work here Lisa.’ She goes, ‘You gotta go.’ I gotta go, what? All of a sudden I see cops coming, security coming from every angle, and I look at her one more time and I go, ‘I deserve better.’ And she just slowly let go of my shirt, and as the cops and security guards are closing in, and this woman wants to take me to see Vince McMahon, I swear to God, I go, ‘I’m out!’ [inaudible] up the f–king side door, I had an Uber waiting out there. As I was walking by, two fans go, ‘Is that Enzo?’ I go, ‘Yeah, come here!’ I took a picture with them, hopped off in the Uber, how you doin’?”
