It's been a rough summer for Enzo Amore. He's been dumped by tag team partners, dragged through the mud by anyone who's asked, and may possibly be getting demoted to NXT or 205 Live.
No matter how you feel about the guy, he's happy to go down swinging. Amidst the rumors of his possible placement in WWE's Cruiserweight Division, 205 Live, Enzo sent out a scientific objection on his Instagram:

205 isn't Vince McMahon's favorite area code, it's the weight class of the WWE Cruiserweights - 205 lbs and under. If Enzo is indeed 206 lbs, he may want to keep ankle weights on just to be safe. While one pound won't keep Amore out of 205 Live, we have to admire the man's fight.
While he's not bringing about Civil Rights for an entire race or anything else particularly novel, it's still refreshing to watch a wrestler claw to stay alive. It certainly feels like the world has stacked itself against Amore.
Enzo has allegedly made a series of poor choices as a professional wrestler.So much so that WWE personalities have begun to speak frankly/ The disdain for Amore has become all too public as last week on the WWE network show, Bring it to the table, Corey Graves buried Big Cass' former tag partner:
“No! No, I don’t like Enzo. He’s a fine guy, but… again, the guy you see on Monday n
JBL also offered to pile on Amore:
"Besides Miz, when the locker room turns on a guy (Enzo), like a human repellent, they usually don't last long afterward".
Enzo may quite literally be fighting for his career. However, WWE is aware of his value on the microphone as Amore consistently turns in some of the best promos in the company. That may be the last, and only,
The good news? He has a match at SummerSlam. Kind of. He'll be suspended above the ring in a shark cage while Big Cass and Big Show have a match. All signs point to him influencing the finish one way or another.
Hang in there, Enzo!
