Former WWE Superstar Enzo was recently on Keeping it 100 with Konnan. The pair touched on a number of topics including Enzo’s thoughts on WWE’s creative and scripted promos.
“I just think that there is a lot of chefs in the kitchen. There are a lot of writers, and I think week-to-week a lot of the talent have no idea what they are getting themselves into up until they show up to the show. So many times I was handed a script and the script would change an hour into the show and I would try to remix it and some of the writers hated that. But when Enzo Amore goes out there and goes off script and he comes back to the curtain he forgets the script.
“The only person that really mattered was Vince McMahon so I never gave a f— about the writers. If a writer adds something terrible to the script and I wasn’t feeling it, I’m sorry bro. I didn’t ask for permission, I asked for forgiveness and half the time I went out there and just said what I felt was better because who better than the guy that says ‘My Name is Enzo Amore’? I wrote that and I hear everybody saying that with me.
“If you don’t have to hold the microphone and say those things in front of a million people each week; if you have never been laid on your back and had your teeth knocked in or taken a bump and risk your life, had your mother crying at home because you were knocked out cold, having an MRI and you had your leg broken in the ring; I went to the ringer to hold that microphone and to hear those people say that s—. So, if I’m not feeling it, I am not saying it. So, when I cut those promos it was oftentimes how I spoke and people don’t want to hear that.”

I mean, they’re hoping that they’re going to wrestle on the show, I think they’re going to wrestle on the show, but nobody knows. And it’s up to the Saudi government.”

Mick Foley recently gave an interview to TalkSport.com. Foley revealed that the WWE plans to make the third hour of RAW edgier in the near future.
“The idea is that the third hour is going to get rougher, wilder, and more unpredictable,” Foley said. “When I was GM, I knew that people were breaking towards the SmackDown show because it was the darling of the Internet.”
“The idea was ‘why don’t you try [having] a third hour.’ It was like a giant albatross around your neck. The third hour is really difficult. I think it’s an idea to have the third hour more unpredictable and more like the Attitude Era.”
