Have you seen the video of Enzo Amore appearing in Times Square in New York City with 10,000 fans outside, cheering and showing their support for the former WWE Superstar?
You can see that South Florida's own Cha Cha Charlie was part of the group accompanying Amore, who then went inside a famous recording studio to cut another hip-hop-style song.
"The guy's talented," Charlie said. "He recorded the whole song within less than three hours. The whole production, everything was pretty good."
That was fresh off the heels of Amore's first effort, “Phoenix,” just released, where he powerfully addressed the situation, causing his release from WWE. Amore, who maintained his innocence throughout the investigation, was recently cleared of the accusations.
"He dropped his music video that day. He told his fans he was going to be in Times Square, where he wanted all his fans to show up for his big announcement. Out of nowhere, he dropped a message to his fans on social media, and about 10,000 people showed up to support Enzo Amore. It was amazing."
Charlie, an indie wrestler, was in town for a Legendary Action Wrestling show during Memorial Day Weekend. After winning LAW gold, he and fellow indie wrestler the Jurassic Juggernaut Vince Steele provided assistance and security for Amore as he made his way through the large crowd and into the recording studio. Amore, who broke his silence in a big way, told his side and thanked fans. He and his entourage tossed T-shirts to them.
"Enzo gave me the call. He told me that he needed my support and my help," Charlie said. "No questions asked. No ifs, ands or buts. I was right there, and I was there to support him."
The connection between Amore, Cha Cha Charlie and Vince Steele was made possible by Dennis Castillo, aka Tazz All Pro (@TAZZALLPRO). NOTE: Not the ECW and WWE alum.
Charlie, took a break from training at the Main Event Training Center in Fort Lauderdale, to discuss his busy and cool Memorial Day Weekend in New York.
