Real1 speaks at length about his upcoming NJPW debut.
Making his New Japan Pro-Wrestling in-ring debut at All Star Junior Festival USA is Real1 a.k.a. Enzo Amore. He is scheduled to be in a six-man tag with Starboy Charlie and Jack Cartwheel. They’ll be facing the team of Ryusuke Taguchi, Rich Swann and The DKC.
Real1 was welcomed onto Busted Open Radio with Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer. He expressed that he’s grateful to be making his New Japan in-ring debut. He joked it about this being his official and first in-ring appearance since he did not make it into the ring at ROH x NJPW G1 Supercard.
This Saturday is my debut (for NJPW), technically speaking, in-ring debut because when I jumped over that guardrail (at ROH x NJPW G1 Supercard), I never quite made it into the ring. So this time, I’m going to be getting in the ring on Saturday with New Japan. I’m grateful for the opportunity honestly. Me being gracious is something you don’t hear too much; humility and humbleness when I cut promos and start talking but I have the utmost respect for what it is that they do in New Japan and the way that it’s done and the honor that it holds and how long they’ve been doing it. A standard of success. It’s a precedent that has been set in the business internationally…
He would go on to say that if he gets the chance to do what he does, he’ll end up at the Tokyo Dome. Real1 then got into the coverage of his departure from WWE. He feels the same people who got him on TV are the people who got him fired.
If I get an opportunity from Rocky Romero to go out there (at NJPW All Star Junior Festival) and do what I do, I guarantee you I end up over in Japan in the Tokyo Dome in front of a hundred f*cking thousand people and taking everything that I deserve that should be f*cking mine. You guys wanna put me through hell, drag my name through the f*cking mud. When you mention my name and you write an article and you say something like, oh, ‘And he was released from the company due to an accusation’ and f*cking sexual — you f*cking idiot! It was a tweet, the police never called me, never went to court, never had a f*cking trial. I got fired because of you! The same people who got me on TV, the people.
Before Real1’s release from WWE, he was going to guest referee the Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania 34. To read more on that, head over to this link.
