In a recent interview on AEW World Champion Chris Jericho’s podcast, former WWE star Enzo Amore revealed that he was fired from the company for farting loudly during a Baron Corbin promo.
While that might be the most bizarre, it perhaps isn’t the most newsworthy piece of information to come out of Enzo’s Talk is Jericho podcast appearance.
While speaking to Jericho, Amore discussed WWE’s drugs policy. Enzo added that while the fines for being caught are expensive, half of the roster still smokes marijuana:
“I’m a huge pothead and I’m open about it now. Now that I’m out of the company and I can talk about it. For 6 years with the company, I was never in a picture with a beer in my hand, never. I couldn’t smoke pot in the WWE for 5 years. They fine you for it. They fined you for it $2,500 and I was broke. I started off making $600 a week in the WWE for a year, so I was taking out credit cards just to pay my bills. So when I finally looked at my bank account, probably like 6 months into the main roster, I was like, ‘do you know what? I can take a fine right now.’ And I lit up a blunt again for the first time. And, to me, that is my medicine, bro.”
“Marijuana, I don’t know if anyone has ever smoked a joint and then beat his wife. A guy got hammered drunk and something happened, but this is legal. So it helped me. I’d rub the CBD cream all over my body when I was with the WWE. That’ll get you fined $2,500. Yeah. And that’s the thing a lot of people don’t know. Probably half the locker room smokes pot. And why do we do that? You can’t do pills. You can’t do drugs. If you drink, you might end up like Cass. [Imitating Cass] Whoa, whoa, whoa. I don’t want any of that stuff to happen to me.”
This comes after Jericho actually revealed a few months ago that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon actually started smoking pot in front of Donald Trump a few years ago.
