This past Saturday night at The ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard Event in Madison Square Garden, Enzo (nZo) & Big Cass (CaZXL) suddenly showed up and invaded the show. After The Winner Take All Tag Team Title Match for both The IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team & ROH World Tag Team Titles, nZo & CaZXL jumped the barricade and brawled with The Briscoes & Bully Ray. Although most of the brawling didn’t air on The PPV, nZo & CaZXL are expected to begin working with Ring Of Honor soon, but not in an exclusive capacity.
Now being called The Free AgentZ, nZo & CaZXL were recently interviewed by the folks from Sports Illustrated about what they did at The G1 Supercard. nZo said that he was proud of what they pulled of and doing it on their own terms, as seen below:
“It’s a dream come true to do what we did, and that’s have a fist fight in Madison Square Garden,” Enzo said. “We walked out of there on our own terms, with our middle fingers in the air, on the first card not by a McMahon in over 60 years. … We’re going where we want, when we want, and nobody can put a filter on us now. Our goal is to be the top act in the entire world of pro wrestling. In the social media era, we’re the f—ing Road Warriors. We’ve got nothing else to lose, so we’re going to take it all. We’re still certified, we’re still bona fide, and we’re still the realest guys in the world.”
nZo & CaZXL were separated before as nZo was fired by The WWE for sexual assault charges, while CaZXL was released from WWE due to behavioral issues. At a recent House Of Hardcore Event after CaZXL had a health scare, nZo felt that it was about time to reach out to him and possibly get back together, as seen below:
“We’ve had our personal differences and we’ve had our professional differences, and it’s no secret that we had a falling out,” Cass admitted. “We’re both fighters, we’ve been fighting our whole lives, and we’ve especially been fighting these past two years.”
“It’s been well-publicized that Cass had a health scare and suffered a seizure at a House of Hardcore wrestling event,” Enzo added. “Once I saw that footage, I thought about my friend—a guy I traveled the world with and had experiences that I can’t share with any other human—and I couldn’t risk losing that forever. Pride aside, I reached out.”
nZo & CaZXL then said that they plan on living up to their tag team name by not staying exclusive with any Pro Wrestling promotion and by keeping full control of their own brand, as seen below:
“We had the opportunity of a lifetime with the WWE to see the world and build our brand, and now we are Free AgentZ,” Enzo said. “Nobody in WWE, AEW, New Japan, Ring of Honor, or Impact has been given the opportunity we’ve had. We have a social media following, a presence, and a voice despite not working for a company right now. In order to take advantage of that, we plan on doing it in ways that have never been done before.
“We are now business owners of our brand with creative control over our work. We own our own music, artwork, and merchandise. We have a television show in the works, and I can’t wait for the world to see it. … This is the real-life nWo. We are not signing any exclusivity contracts, we are not signing a non-compete. We have all the right in the world to promote ourselves shamelessly and have as much fun as we want. If fans want to see us in a ring, then let their voices be heard.”
