Waldwick, N.J. – Waldwick's Eric Arndt -- aka Enzo Amore -- brought some Jersey flair to Texas when he made his World Wrestling Entertainment debut on Monday Night Raw alongside his tag team partner Colin Cassady.
The Dallas crowd cheered upon hearing the duo's theme music during the USA Network telecast. For most of the night, they chanted Enzo and Cass's "How You Doin'?" catchphrase.
Amore – dressed in a white jacket and black pants and wearing gold chains – dashed across the stage before making his way to the ring with Cassady.
"My name is Enzo Amore . And I am a certified G and a bona fide stud. And you can't teach that," he told the crowd. "And this right here, this is Big Cass, and he's 7-foot tall (sic). And you can't teach that.
"Bada boom! Realest guys in the room. How you doin'?"
A graduate of Waldwick High School, where he played football, the 5-foot-11, 200-pound Arndt started with the company in 2013. He was a singles wrestler before being paired with real-life friend Big Cass (real name Bill Morrissey). Together, they became one of the most popular acts in WWE's developmental brand, NXT.
They were promoted to the main roster the night after Wrestlemania 32 on Sunday.
