Enzo Amore and Big Cass have been hitting the media rounds to promote next week's WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. During an interview with FOX Sports, Enzo Amore revealed how he got his break into WWE.

"My athletic trainer when I was playing high school football, college football was a guy named Joe DeFranco out of New Jersey and Triple H, you know he's got the craziest schedule in the world, he was looking for a new athletic trainer that could work with him around his schedule, and Joe was a guy near the area - probably, if not the best, one of the best in the country," Enzo said. "And I knew Joe since I was growing up, man, about 14 years old.

"So when he first came to me and said 'hey do you know this guy named Paul Levesque?' My jaw nearly hit the ground. I mean, you're talking about a kid who used to train at DeFranco's and talk about becoming a WWE superstar his entire life and walked around in this persona. Enzo Amore, the guy you see on TV, existed in a gym in New Jersey long before he ever took to a TV screen. Here he is saying 'hey do you know who Paul Levesque is?' Call it destiny, call it whatever you want, basically what I was given was the opportunity of a lifetime to try out in WWE NXT - and by my saving grace I was given the opportunity to talk to Dusty Rhodes. I was handed a microphone and told 'go, kid.'"

Enzo also discussed his concussion suffered at WWE Payback, not being apprehensive to return to the ring after, facing Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens at SummerSlam and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
