Report: Former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore Claims He Was Offered $25,000 To Face NJPW Star Tama Tonga

The Realest Guy In The Room reportedly offered some serious dough...

Tama Tonga and nZo (formerly Enzo Amore) have had beef with each other on social media for a number of months. According to Amore, they have legitimate heat because Tonga has prevented Enzo from working in New Japan Pro Wrestling and repeatedly told him he would not be welcome in their locker room.

The two stars have repeatedly sent jibes to one another on Twitter, which seemingly came to a head on January 16 when the Bullet Club member challenged The Realest Guy In The Room to a match, in which all the proceeds would go to charity.

Yesterday, Amore cut a promo on Tonga on YouTube, in which he claimed Josh Barnett offered him $25,000 to have the match at GCW's Bloodsport 3 during WrestleMania week. Since then, both nZo and GCW have issued rebuttals about the claim, as The Certified G claimed he misspoke.

Ryan Satin at Pro Wrestling Sheet has now claimed that it was actually WrestleCon who offered Enzo $25,000 to host the match. However, shortly after they published the news, WrestleCon denied they had offered Amore any money, but did admit they would be willing to host the match.

They tweeted: "Not true, we never made an offer. We listened to his agents offer, just like we listen to all offers by talent and agents. We offered space to hold his event."

While neither nZo or Tama Tonga seem any further forward in finalising a venue for their match, they have both continued to throw shade at each other.

The former IWGP Tag Team champion tweeted: "Heard you turned down $25k to fight me @real1...#SAAAWWWFT."

Enzo then replied: "U heard right. Now let’s see how much money we can raise for
@heartsupport....It’ll only take about stacks raised 5 foot 3' to put that charity money where you mouth is."
