Eric Arndt  (December 8, 1986) is an American professional wrestler who is currently signed to NXT Wrestling, working under the ring name Enzo Amore where he performs in a tag-team with his partner - Colin Cassady. His trademark is a speech with the words: "My name is Enzo Amore, I am a certified G and a bonafied stud and you can't teach that. [...] Bada boom, realest guys in the room."

World Wrestling Entertainment (2012-Present)

In August 2012, WWE was noted to have signed Arndt, working under the pseudonym 'Eric Anthony'. Arndt was listed as a wrestler by the ring name of Enzo Amore within WWE's developmental system NXT by November 2012. A chance meeting with WWE executive Triple H at DeFranco’s gym in Wyckoff, New Jersey contributed to WWE signing Arndt.

Amore made his NXT television debut on 22 May 2013, where he was quickly defeated by Mason Ryan. Amore's NXT character has been described as a "stereotypical cocky, Jersey Shore loudmouth" and an "outsized version of the man playing the part". Amore went on to form an alliance with Colin Cassady, who had also previously lost to Ryan, and they labelled themselves 'the realest guys in the room'. In real life, Arndt (Amore) first met Bill Morrissey (Cassady) when Morrissey was 15, when they played basketball together at the Cage of Manhattan, New York nearly 10 years before August 2013.

Despite Amore and Cassady's alliance, Ryan easily defeated them in consecutive singles matches in July, but lost to them in a handicap match. Ryan ultimately had the last laugh when he caused Amore and Cassady to be attacked by Tons of Funk. After the feud with Ryan, Amore and Cassady went on to feud with Alexander Rusev, Sylvester Lefort and Scott Dawson. On the 25 September episode of NXT, Amore and Cassady participated in a gauntlet match for a future shot at the NXT Tag Team Championship; they started the match, first defeating CJ Parker and Tyler Breeze, then beating Rusev and Dawson, but fell to their final opponents, The Ascension.

In November 2013, Amore suffered a broken leg while training. Amore returned on the 26 June 2014 episode of NXT, saving Cassady from an attack from Sylvester Lefort and Marcus Louis, the new team of The Legionnaires.

Personal Life

Arndt was born in Hackensack, New Jersey. He went on to school in Memorial Elementary School and Waldwick High School.

While studying at Salisbury University and ultimately earning a journalism degree, Arndt played Division III (NCAA) college football from 2007 to 2009. He played as a linebacker and a safety for the Salisbury Sea Gulls.

Before signing with WWE, Arndt had worked as a disc jockey for the New York Jets, a piano mover and a manager at Hooters.
