Enzo & Joey Janela Almost Fight at Concert.
Wrestling in 2019 continues to be a weird place. Enzo Amore, formerly of WWE, was close to a fist fight at a Blink-182 concert with Joey Janela. Both Enzo and Janela commented on the fight on their social media. The video of both men squaring up was posted on Enzo’s Twitter account.
Not a safe environment for a fight, needless to say, I didn’t start the fight & I was smart enough not to have one with a drunk’n fool/vagina (s/o Angela my homegirl, screaming like a voice of reason to a very reasonable man.) @JANELABABY dick riding aint a form of transportation pic.twitter.com/l3jyJVVm3S

I wasn’t scared I was absolutely bombed LOL, before the footage you see. We had a little scuffle (glasses already on the ground) he punched me in the face, I held my finger in his face and then my friend told me his boy was filming so I was hesitant, to continue

Reigns battled back from a leukemia diagnosis to return to the ring in February. He also presented an award on the evening. Reigns presented the “Best Coach” award to men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun.
Coming back meant more than just returning to the ring. It meant I was healthy enough to show my gratitude for those who sent their prayers, who continually thought about me, and that I was ready to raise awareness. Thank you for all those who voted, it is an honor. #ESPYS @WWE pic.twitter.com/u2rGTZkVLf
