W. Morrissey Recalls Making Triple H "Furious" At WWE SummerSlam 2016
W. Morrissey prompted a furious reaction from Triple H
Prior to his current run in IMPACT Wrestling, W. Morrissey spent several years in WWE, primarily in a tag team with Enzo Amore.
During their time together, Enzo and the then-Big Cass feuded with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho and the two teams faced off at SummerSlam 2016.
Speaking about the match on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Morrissey revealed he and Enzo made Triple H "furious" as their pre-match promo involved them singing a Frank Sinatra song.
"I can think of one time when we really messed up," Morrissey began. "We went off-script at SummerSlam in Brooklyn and sang a Frank Sinatra song. You can't sing or imitate things that are copyrighted. That was a stern talking to. He was furious, Hunter. We didn't know. We didn't know those sorts of things.
"I think everything is amplified and it's so much bigger, and the magnitude of things you do and the consequences of the things you do are way bigger. That's something that maybe, in the moment, I didn't realise. But you're on live television. If you mess up or do something that can cost the company, that's on you. It's way bigger, it comes with a lot more money and a lot more glory, whatever you want to call it, but you have to watch yourself a lot more," he continued.
"If you go back and watch that SummerSlam, I think it was 2016, they had to cut it. That was something we weren't told, and then I see we did it and we thought, 'Yeah, New York. We f*****g crushed it, man! Yeah, man, that was on the fly and everybody was with it!' And then we got to the back and it was like, 'You! You! Come here!' And I was like 'f**k!'" Morrissey added.
"We came back and were like, 'Jericho, thank you! Kevin, f**k yeah!' We were so happy, and then the mood just completely changed, drops. And then you start to think, 'F**k, what did we do? What did we do? We must've f****d up.' So yeah, that was a big one. That was huge. In NXT, we might've been able to do that or get away with it. When we went to different towns on the road with NXT, I sang 'Sherry' in Asbury Park, New Jersey. We were doing stuff all over."
Morrissey made his All Elite Wrestling debut on Wednesday's edition of Dynamite, going one-on-one with Wardlow. Find out more here.
