Steve Austin Predicts Bright Future For Enzo Amore, Talks WWE Roadblock
In a recent edition of his “Steve Austin Show” podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin spoke about his expectations for a certain NXT star and his thoughts on the WWE Roadblock special from last Saturday night in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Below are some of the highlights of what Austin said.
On his belief that Enzo Amore has a bright future ahead of him:
“Enzo has a ton of energy and is very charismatic. ‘Big Cass’, talk about a guy that is 7 foot there. And I like what Enzo says. He’s talking about, ‘you can’t teach that’ and that’s a great catchphrase and it happens to be true. This kid’s 7-foot, good looking kid, and pretty damn athletic. A real bright future for both of these guys, but, in particular, when you look at ‘Big Cass’, there is no ceiling for this guy if he keeps catching on like he has.”
On Dean Ambrose getting elevated in a losing effort at WWE Roadblock:
“I think he shined so much as a wrestler, as a performer, that this match got him over more in my eyes than he was before this match and I liked Dean Ambrose to begin with. This match elevated Dean Ambrose. Dude, someone who books can argue that point with me, but I stand by the fact that someone had to get beat and the right guy got beat and he got beat in the right way and it’s going to make him stronger and that kid’s got a great future. He did before this match [and] he really does now. He went out there on a big stage with a top guy and threw down.”
On how Triple H’s performance at Roadblock raised the pressure that Roman Reigns will have going into WrestleMania 32:
“Now, the stakes are high because Roman Reigns has got to go our there on the biggest stage of all with Triple H and Triple H is not going to crumble. He’s going to have one hell of a game plan and he’s going to be ready for the moment. Roman Reigns has got to go out there and execute now and do something just like this match [between Ambrose and Triple H at WWE Roadblock] happened, the stakes will be higher. There will probably be a few more bells and whistles involved, but, now, man, it’s put up or shut up time for Roman.”
