Sean Waltman on backstage reaction to Enzo Amore’s attempt to hijack WWE Survivor Series

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore attempted to put some spotlight on himself while WWE presented one of their big four PPV events of the year, Survivor Series.

Amore was sitting at ringside when he decided to recite his old entrance promo just as a key match was about to start. This contest was a champion vs. champion match that saw RAW Tag Team Champions Authors of Pain take on SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro). This led to security escorting him from ringside.

It was later reported after the incident that those in the company weren’t impressed by his actions while others were said to be pretty angry. At the end of the day, outside of Liv Morgan, who is the ex-girlfriend of the former WWE star, most WWE stars kept their opinions of his antics private.

Sean “X-Pac” Waltman recently gave his take on the situation and shed some information on the backstage reaction to it on a recent episode of X-Pac 12360. According to the former WWE star, once wrestlers saw the security guard take Amore down from standing in a chair, they gave her a standing ovation.

“Some people want to compare this to let’s say to our invasion of WCW…that’s not how you do it if you’re going to do something like that you don’t come in and sit there … I am not exactly sure what he was waiting for. So I was in the back, they {WWE} figured it out right away because everyone started tweeting pictures of him, so they knew…First of all, now they know he’s there, so there’s no way he’s getting any camera time cause they’re gonna make sure that the cameras are not gonna be on him, they know right where he’s at. So they send security, and as soon as he sees security I guess that’s when he got up on the chair… She {Lisa/Security Guard} got a standing ovation from the talent in the back.{For tackling him}.”

Waltman continued by stating, “Besides the fact that it was incredibly disrespectful to everyone in the match, putting that all aside if you’re gonna go do that, when you’re ready to do it, you just go in, and you do it, you don’t wait.”
