Get ready for your YouTube recommendations to light up as former WWE star nZo discusses THAT video where Simon Gotch buries him.
nZo previously competed in WWE as Enzo Amore and during his time in the company the certified G and bona fide stud captured the Cruiserweight Championship during a well received singles run as part of 205 Live.
But nZo also became famous online for a video in which his former NXT and WWE colleague Simon Gotch of The Vaudevillains laid into him following his own release from the company. The video became a meme as it somewhat ubiquitously appeared in the recommendations of wrestling fans on YouTube.
The video in question has amassed over 1.5m views since its release in June 2018 and features, former WWE Superstar, Simon Gotch commenting on the NXT roster from his time with the company, during the interview Gotch would criticise the New Jersey native for ‘believing his own bullshi*’ and ‘not knowing wrestling.’
“To give you the full rundown on Enzo [Amore], I will say, to his credit, he absolutely believes his own bullsh*t. He is 100% confident in himself… to his detriment, and the detriment of others around him. He is an example of someone who has no excuse to not know wrestling, but he doesn’t know wrestling.”
Speaking exclusively to Inside The Ropes’ own Liam Alexander-Stewart, the former WWE star returned the favour to Gotch and says the current Pro Wrestling NOAH star is solely famous for that video:
“Literally, he’s famous for that one thing. Nobody remembers any matches he had. Nobody remembers any good matches he had. No one remembers anything in his life except for the fact that he’s the guy who knocked out Enzo.”
“So, I guess he holds a grudge and he’s really upset about it. But I don’t have any hate in my heart for anybody. If I saw him, I wouldn’t say a f*cking word to him. He’s not worth my breath and on this conversation, you know, congratulations, kid. I made you famous.”
During the conversation, the former Enzo Amore also discussed why he currently isn’t interested in returning to WWE.
Since departing the WWE in 2018, nZo has made appearances for a variety of promotions including most recently MLW where he recently took on fellow former 205 Live roster member Lince Dorado at MLW Kings of Colosseum in Philadelphia.
