Enzo Amore has invoked his rematch clause and will challenge WWE Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladder and Chairs tonight
Originally, Kalisto was set to challenge previous champion Amore at WWE TLC, but The Certified G unexpectedly found himself defending the title against the Lucha sensation in a Lumberjack Match on Raw after expressing his discontent to Raw General Manager Kurt Angle. Unfortunately for The Realest Guy in the Room, who had few allies around the ring, he found himself on the losing end after Kalisto connected with an astonishing Salida del Sol from the top rope to become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
Wasting little time, the former champion confronted Kalisto on WWE 205 Live and opted to use his rematch clause at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs.
Enzo truly changed the Cruiserweight landscape when he captured the WWE Cruiserweight Title from Neville at WWE No Mercy with the help of a savage low blow. Though his actions were underhanded, the new titleholder wasted no time returning to Raw the following night to claim that he had single-handedly put the entire division on the map.
However, Enzo's mouth got him into serious trouble, as the whole Cruiserweight division ignored Amore's No-Contact clause, blocked The Certified G's escape and allowed Neville to act on their behalf and deliver a calculated assault of pure retribution on The Realest Guy in the Room. Then, moments after Raw went off the air, the attack continued with the rest of the Cruiserweights and the raging Braun Strowman finishing the job.
As much as the WWE Universe was excited by the all-out onslaught, the actions taken by the division did not come without consequences. As a result, there wasn't a single competitor left on that roster that was allowed to challenge the outspoken titleholder when the following week's Raw came about.
For a moment, it looked like Enzo had the last laugh, but Raw General Manager Kurt Angle changed all that in an instant when he introduced the newest member of the Cruiserweight division ... Kalisto! Since the masked Superstar had no part in the previous week's onslaught, he was clear to challenge the champion. And as soon as Enzo tried to take him out with the title, the luchador showed him just how determined he was to make his opportunity count by unleashing an attack that left Enzo down on the canvas.
The following week, an irate Enzo confronted Angle, who forced him to defend (and lose) the championship against Kalisto later that evening, leading to the WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs rematch.
