Backstage News on How Enzo Situation Caused Raw Plans to Change

— The original plan for Monday’s Raw was for Enzo Amore to wrestle Goldust, in a match that was scheduled for the third hour of the program at the Barclays Center venue. According to, the booking would have seen the Zo-Train interfere, prompting the Dudley Boys to come out for the save and ultimately put someone through a table.

— When the Enzo rape story went public early on Monday, WWE was forced to re-book that entire segment, replacing that singles match with the tag team match of Heath Slater & Rhyno vs. Titus O’Neill & Apollo Crews as a way to still get the Dudleys on the show so they could do their table spot. This re-write reportedly occurred as late as 7 PM ET, just one hour before Raw went live.

— With Enzo off the show, Goldust and Cedric Alexander were also without any roles so they didn’t appear, whereas members of the Zo-Train were sent to the Manhattan Center.
