Enzo Amore reportedly tried to leave WWE before getting released

Enzo Amore

The story of Enzo Amore being accused of rape became viral on Monday and by Tuesday WWE had parted their ways with the former Cruiserweight Champion.

The quickness of these events surprised everyone and many believed WWE should have waited for sometime before releasing the former Champion.

However, Dave Meltzer talked about Enzo during the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and revealed that the former 205 Live Star actually tried to get out of his contract not too long ago.

According to Meltzer, Amore apparently wanted to leave the company so he can focus on pursuing a career as a full-time rapper. Though he didn’t elaborate why he wasn’t able to quit the company.

As reported before, WWE officials were unaware of the accusations on Enzo Amore prior to Monday and upon learning they got furious over the cruiserweight Star and released him.

    Well he will certainly disappear if he goes to prison. 😉

    I really do not think that anyone needs to elaborate on why he was not able to quit. Same as Neville, when he asked for his release, WWE hold all the cards and a contract is binding. WWE obviously saw money in him, why else would they have not got rid of him already after all the rumours of the heat he has, and how Vince does not like him, then put a championship on him?
    Very few people get to walk away on their own terms. Even CM Punk was held to ransom for ages before WWE pulled the revenge move of firing him on his wedding day.
