This may sound like a WWE 2K fantasy booking, but the fans who attended WrestleFest 25 witnessed the match in real. First, Enzo came out to Dean Martin’s version of “That’s Amore” as his entrance song.

Enzo then cut his usual promo but played smartly as he never mentioned the name Amore, as WWE still owns that name.
