Enzo Amore has been the topic of a lot of conversation recently but he still has a lot of people standing behind him. However, it would also seem as many people might be still rooting for the Certified G, even more people are coming out of the woodwork who aren’t really on his side at all.
Simon Gotch is now known as Simon Grimm on the indie wrestling scene and he recently sat down for a shoot interview where he discussed a few things about Enzo Amore.
“To give you the full rundown on Enzo – I will say, to his credit, he absolutely believes his own bullsh-t” Simon said. “He is 100% confident in himself to his detriment and the detriment of others around him. He’s an example of someone who has no excuse to not know wrestling, but he doesn’t know wrestling.”
Later on, Simon discussed some of Enzo’s short comings in the ring and went on to discuss the controversial spot that sidelined Amore for a while due to a concussion suffered in the middle of a match.
“He broke his own leg trying to counter a wrist lock. Yeah, when he was in the wheelchair on NXT TV, that’s how it happened – he broke his own leg trying to counter a wristlock. He blamed it on the canvas being loose.”
Most famously, Simon was involved in a spot where Enzo suffered a concussion and had to be put on the shelf for a bit. Gotch/Grimm wasn’t shy about going into what happened in the ring in full detail.
“So he’s almost touching the rope about a quarter of the way off because I don’t want him to be too close or Cass will tag him. I go – I start running with him [and] I’m ghosting him the whole way, my hands are here and here, just holding him. [He is] running, running, running. He starts to slide…boom, hits. I follow through, ‘yeah, motherf-cker! Yeah.’ I go out of the ring [and] I look at him. I’m like, ‘Man, he’s selling the sh-t out of this, cool.’ I go to grab him. I’m a light touch with grabbing because I know how much that sucks when someone just grabs you and just f-cking – so literally, fingers on temples, side of the head. He comes with me. I’m like, ‘okay, he’s good.’ Rudy Charles, the referee, [says] we’re in replays, so I let go of him, turn around, start jaw-jacking with the crowd, I turn back around I see this, I see the ‘X’. I go, ‘aww f-ck. He’s out.'”
