Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore recently joined WWE Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin’s podcast, The Steve Austin Show, to talk about his release from WWE.
Amore was released from the company back in January after some sexual assault allegations were made against him. The charges have since been dropped and Amore is focusing on his rap career going by the name “Real1.”
During the podcast Amore was asked by Austin if anyone from WWE has tried to contact him since his release. He revealed he didn’t know as he blocked WWE’s number and is currently nursing injuries from his in-ring career:
“I couldn’t tell you [if WWE has tried reaching out]. I blocked every number that had 203 in it. Straight up. I couldn’t go back anyway. I have sciatica. I can’t walk, bro. I can’t do things physically that I once can do. Getting to the end there heading to WrestleMania, I was saying to myself that I wasn’t sure that I could make it to WrestleMania, I wasn’t even sure that I could make it to the Royal Rumble,” he said.
“I was so beat up but I kayfabed the s–t out of it. I don’t want to go back anytime soon. I need my body to recover. I am not healthy right now physically. I can’t touch my toes. I used to be able to. I was putting off so many things and burning the candle until the end. When I was a heel and had that title I was going hard. I was showing up to work. I had a few nights that I didn’t have any nights of sleep, but you just couldn’t see it on camera.”
