Enzo Amore recently spoke with SI.com about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On who inspired him to become a wrestler:
“There is an entire generation of people who were inspired by HBK,” said Amore.
“That’s my guy, that’s the one I’d want to see, and I’d want the IC title hanging over a ladder, with a microphone also. Whoever gets to the top first can talk all about how great they are.
“Personally, if you ever ask me my favorite match is, it’s the Shawn Michaels-Razor Ramon ladder match. There’s something about that IC title hanging up in the air, baby.”
“This is something people either don’t hear about or don’t know about, but before NXT became the third brand of the WWE, there were some, to say the least, humble beginnings,” said Amore. “Big Cass can tell you about wrestling in front of ten people at armories in Florida, and it was just this past December that same guy stood right next me when we wrestled in London in front of 13,000 for the U.K. tour. With the additions of people like Samoa Joe, Sami Zayn, Finn Balor, [Shinsuke] Nakamura, we have seen a brand build that rivals any in the world. Some of the best matches and some of the best performances is right here in NXT.”
