Enzo Amore’s Lack of Wrestling Ability Irrelevant as WWE’s Newest Cruiserweight
September 9, 2017 - WWECredit: WWE.com
If Enzo Amore has valid anything as a cruiserweight, it’s that nobody cares about wrestling.
The whole cruiserweight multiplication has flatlined as a code on both Raw and 205 Live behind a guarantee of rarely earthy and jaunty competition. And while a matches can be sparkling to watch, graduation an whole multiplication on a merits of wrestling alone has depressed on deaf ears for a WWE’s mainstream assembly since nobody cares about wrestling.
Or during slightest nobody cares about wrestling when it’s flanked by a always-necessary member of entertainment.
A new check conducted by Neil Greenberg of The Washington Post (h/t Wrestling Inc) revealed “wrestling, such as WWE” to be ranked during a bottom as a least-popular sport. When simply presented as “wrestling,” there is zero intriguing about a genre, even when adjacent to a letters “WWE.” But with a small bit of spice, wrestling is unexpected transcended into can’t-miss television.
And that’s where Enzo Amore comes in.
There’s zero pro wrestling about Enzo Amore. He’s cool. He has successfully appropriated black and hip-hop culture, all while creation controversial conform choices to somehow conjure adult a singly dressed loudmouth whose recognition is undeniable.
Since Amore’s off-the-page glamour has been infused into a cruiserweight division, fans have never been some-more engaged. “This is awesome” chants filled a Premier Center on 205 Live notwithstanding Amore simply being a misfortune wrestler in a Fatal 5-Way compare he headlined.
Amore’s entrance on 205 Live has amassed over 800,000 views on YouTube for a multiplication that formerly had adequate difficulty clearing 200,000 views. In fact, video clips from 205 Live a week before averaged only 218,487.

The WWE shouldn’t be panicked that people don’t cruise it their favorite sport, since that graduation isn’t driven by a sweeping word for a genre that mostly startles advertisers, though rather a particular talent.
Amore has single-handedly done a cruiserweight multiplication matter on a strength of his celebrity alone. The wrestling—while still important, as his ancillary expel contingency continue to make him demeanour competent—is delegate to all that has solemnly regenerated a cruiserweight division.
