The online beef between Joey Janela and nZo (aka Enzo Amore) spilled out into the real world last night as they nearly came to blows.
The altercation occurred at a blink-182 and Lil Wayne concert at the PNC Bank Arts Center, an outdoor venue in Holmdel, New Jersey. nZo was the first to tweet about the incident, insulting Janela and accusing him of running away from a fight.
I’m glad you introduced yourself cause I couldn’t pick you out of a line up. You don’t want no smoke. And now I know it, there’s only two things that smell like fish. Ones fish. @JANELABABY straight pussy.— #nZo (FKA Enzo Amore) (@real1) July 10, 2019

Janela, who is signed to All Elite Wrestling, said that he and nZo got into it after he went to introduce himself. In response, nZo said he slapped Janela’s hands down and walked towards him with his hands up. According to nZo, Janela walked away.

nZo posted a video on Twitter on Wednesday morning showing the New Jersey natives in fighting stances but not actually throwing punches.
Not a safe environment for a fight, needless to say, I didn’t start the fight & I was smart enough not to have one with a drunk’n fool/vagina (s/o Angela my homegirl, screaming like a voice of reason to a very reasonable man.) @JANELABABY dick riding aint a form of transportation pic.twitter.com/l3jyJVVm3S— #nZo (FKA Enzo Amore) (@real1) July 10, 2019
Janela claims there is more footage of the fight that nZo did not share.
He didn’t even post the whole video Lmfaooooo— Bad Boy Joey Janela (@JANELABABY) July 10, 2019
The dispute started after nZo and former WWE Superstar Big Cass (now wrestling as caZXL) “crashed” a wrestling event presented by Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling at Madison Square Garden in April. Janela tweeted that nZo “makes a joke out of the wrestling business” and challenged him to a legitimate fight at a future independent wrestling event. nZo responded, “I’ll pay for ur classes bro.”
Just saying this, straight up if @real1 wants some buzz, he can come shoot with me next year at @GCWrestling_ Bloodsport I’ll do 4-6 months of whatever MMA Training Barnett Recommends so I don’t make a fool out of his art, the way NZO makes a joke out of the wrestling business…— Bad Boy Joey Janela (@JANELABABY) April 12, 2019
