Enzo Amore was recently interviewed on Store Horsemen Podcast and spoke about numerous topics one of them was his romantic storyline with former RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax.
If you would recall last year the team of Enzo and Cass came to blows and split up with Cass turning heel on Amore. During their supposed blow off match Cass got injured and the very next night Enzo appeared on 205 Live and went face to face with the cruiserweight champion at the time Neville and began a feud with him.
During an episode of RAW last year we saw Nia Jax begin to take a romantic interest in Enzo. We saw this in multiple backstage segments where they would flirt with each other a little bit before either Drew Gulak or Alexa Bliss would interrupt them.
Enzo was originally scheduled to be Jax’s Mixed Match Challenge partner but the day they were supposed to do filming to promote the show Enzo was sick and was pulled from the tournament which lead to Apollo Crews replacing him.
Unfortunately Enzo Amore got released before we could get the big payoff to the romantic storyline. Enzo revealed the conclusion to the storyline in the Store Horsemen Podcast. Enzo stated that Vince wanted him to be in a grey area before going full blown heel. He was to use Nia to help him win matches and then she would find out that he was cheating on her with her best friend Alexa Bliss.
“I was getting so much heat it was awesome that people probably won’t appreciate it until five, ten years from now,” Amore said. “Like a babyface transition that I made and on a marketing level too it was crazy and Vince wanted me in that grey area though. He didn’t want me full-blown. He had plans to make me full-blown that nobody else knew about, not even the other people that were involved in it.”
“I mean look at that Nia / Alexa Bliss WrestleMania blow-off. What do you think was gonna happen? How else could I get full-blown heat? Enzo Amore with the grey area trying to get full-blown heel real, real f–king heat. How do you do that? I’m using Nia as a heater to keep my title and I get caught hooking up with her best friend backstage. Bang, that’s how you do it. Nia didn’t know that. Alexa didn’t know it. I knew that because Vince told me […] I was just toying along with her I wanted her to win me matches, I wanted her to be like Chyna.”
