On the comeback trail. Earlier this year, Enzo Amore was released from WWE in a major surprise. Back in January, news broke that Amore was being charged with raping a woman in a Phoenix hotel room back in 2017. The charges were later dropped but Amore’s WWE career was over. Now though he’s trying something else and as you might expect, he has a lot to say about it.

The new career comes with a music video, which you can check out right here.

Amore was recently interviewed in Times Square by Adam Glyn about both his release from WWE and his new career in rap music. The interview focused on the start of Amore’s new career while also discussing his legal issues and the impact that his fans have had on him since his time with WWE. Amore also talks about the things that he’s been doing to advance his rap career. Here are some highlights, with transcriptions courtesy of the New York Daily News:

On What He’s Been Doing Lately

“I’ve been working with a lot of people out in Hollywood on writing scripts, screenplays, directing, producing and making music, man. On the low, I’ve been in Kanye’s studio No Name out in LA. And I’m about to drop a ton of content on the world.”

On The Impact Of His Fans

“[My fans] did all the research for me, they stalked this accuser’s life, every single misstep she took was sent to the police. And we didn’t even need to do it. I don’t know why I ever hired a lawyer in the first place. My fans were lawyers, and I owe them the world. I owe them every bit of the opportunity I’ve been given, everything I’ve been able to capitalize on. This is a dream come true.”

And On His Wrestling Career

“I think that my fans, you know, they’re supporting me and always did. I owe them every bit of degree of gratitude,” he said. “If it wasn’t for them, the Enzo Army so to say, I would’ve never existed in that business. Five-foot-10, [190 lbs] with a mouth like mine, you’re never supposed to make it and everyone is trying to make sure you don’t. But with the fans, the support of them, they couldn’t take me off the screen.”

Opinion: The more I hear from Amore, the happier I am that he’s gone from WWE. He comes off as a weasel more often than not and that makes him hard to tolerate. While he was someone who could talk quite well, that’s all he had going for him. At some point, it needs to be more than words and that’s not what happened in Amore’s situation. Maybe his rapping will work for him, but there’s every chance that this blows up in his face.
