Enzo Amore and Big Cass were fried from WWE for different reasons last year – the former Cruiserweight Champion was handed his release after being charged with allegations of sexual assault while the 7 ft Superstar was shown the door due to behavioral issues and backstage heat.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE is in talks of bringing Amore and Cass back to NXT. The big return would see both men enjoying their spot at the helm of the developmental brand.
WWE has been in contact with Enzo and Cass about a surprise return to be top stars on the NXT brand. We don’t know if they’ve accepted, but Cass really hasn’t done much on the indie scene and has also made it clear he wants to get back.
However, while talking to WrestlingInc, Enzo said that a return to WWE isn’t something he sees happening in the near future as he can’t picture himself keeping up with the demanding WWE schedule.
“I could never see myself working a schedule like that anytime soon. I mean, you just never say never with anything, so, I just know that absence makes the heart grow fonder. All is forgiven in time. I find that – and that goes on both sides of the coin because I worked for the company where at one point, I got fired and was upset… In that moment, I’m so angered,” Enzo remembered. “But then you look at it and you understand the significance of the timing of the situation and you have time to let that burn off.”
“Man, I don’t hold any grudges. Do I want to go back there? Absolutely, not right now. I am enjoying so much of what I am doing so quickly, of being in these locker rooms and meeting these guys, that I can’t imagine going back to a world where I’m on the road 300 days, over 250-280 matches a year.”
Meanwhile, WWE has denied speaking to Enzo and Cass for a return to NXT and claimed that the reports are false.
With NXT moving to USA Network on September 18, WWE needs to make the show as much power-packed as possible. And the addition of Enzo and Cass to the current roster could be a good way to boost ratings right from the very start.
The Wednesday Night Wars is around the corner as AEW eagerly waits to debut on TNT on October 2.
Enzo and Cass used to be a hot act in WWE back in the day. However, things soon fell apart after their main roster debut and both men parted ways, then eventually culminated with each of them getting fired from the company several months later.
