Enzo Amore (Real 1) Rumored For WWE Return In The New NXT (UPDATED)

Enzo Amore and Big Cass have the pro wrestling world buzzing ahead of a big weekend once again.

On Wednesday, reports surfaced from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that claimed WWE had been in contact with Enzo (Real 1) and Cass about a "surprise return" to be top stars in the new NXT.

It’s unclear if they’ve accepted any offers but neither guy has done much of anything after leaving WWE.

While nothing is finalized, any potential return is being discussed for either the first NXT show on USA Network or the third show (which would be the one that goes against AEW).

It should be noted that WWE officials have only discussed a return with the tag team and that there would be obvious negativity in bringing both of them back, especially Enzo as any sort of focal point on the NXT brand.

However, as reported before, Vince sees the head-to-head with AEW as a “war” and he wants surprises of which there just aren’t many out there to happen.

UPDATE #1:


Earlier today, we posted a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter by Dave Meltzer suggesting that WWE was had made contact with Enzo & Cass about a possible return to the company, specifically for NXT as that brand prepares to launch their weekly TV show next month.

Meltzer cautioned that talks were ongoing but that nothing had been agreed upon, noting that Vince McMahon was looking for a "surprise" for NXT either for the debut show or more likely, the show going head-to-head against AEW's launch.

For what it's worth, WWE sources tell me that there is "no truth to the rumor", implying that no discussions have even taken place.

Mike Johnson over at PWInsider.com also reports that according to his sources, "there is no basis on the story and that there have been zero discussions between the two sides."

We will keep you posted as more news regarding Enzo Amore and Big Cass returning to WWE and/or NXT surfaces.

UPDATE #2:

Dave Meltzer has since tweeted that WWE has indicated they have no interest in either wrestler and that it looks like it isn't happening.
