Raw left a lot of cliffhangers after last Monday’s show with perhaps the most intriguing question being who ambushed Enzo Amore backstage?
Kalisto accused Apollo Crews later on during the show, but much of the WWE Universe is skeptical that this is the direction WWE Creative is taking us.
A number of wrestling writers are wondering if now is the perfect time to break up one of the WWE’s most popular face teams.
There’s no doubt Enzo and Big Colin Cassady have made a huge impact on the main roster since their promotion from NXT on the first Raw after WrestleMania 32 in April 2016. They’ve been one of the WWE’s best sellers of apparel and their entrance theme song “Sawft” is one of the more popular arena anthems going today.
Aaron Bower of Bleacherreport.com thinks the WWE now has the perfect storyline to tell the story of Big Cass turning on Enzo. He wrote that they could book the team to confront a number of singles stars and tag teams before ultimately revealing that it was Big Cass who knocked out Smacktalk Skywalker.
There’s no doubt Big Cass would be the type of singles talent WWE could push in the hunt for the Universal Championship once Brock Lesnar drops the belt to a contender who is full-time on Raw. WWE might even be able to push Enzo as a main player in the Cruiserweight Division, adding some style and a big draw to a 205 Live show which hasn’t went over well with the fans so far.
There are some who believe that WWE may be using the Amore ambush as a perfect way to bring back The Revival after Dash Wilder’s and Scott Dawson’s push was sidetracked by injury almost as quickly as it started. That could also be another story which would work, but what would be more compelling?
The plot for a storyline and feud between the two is already there. Enzo and Cass massively divide opinion among WWE fans as it is, with some of the belief Amore is holding Cassady back. Have the latter use that as his motivation for the attack and say he wants to go on his own to prove himself because he grew frustrated over the duo’s failure to land the Raw tag titles, coming close on numerous occasions.
The WWE already took advantage of the best friends-turned-frenemies tale with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho, and it was one of the best storylines in terms of fan engagement so far this year. Enzo and Big Cass’ breakup would likely make a similar impact, and clear some space in a crowded tag team division on Raw with The Hardy Boyz, Sheamus & Cesaro, The Revival, Rhyno & Heath Slater and other teams being able to get more in-ring time.
