Not sure but almost seemed like a heel turn from Enzo, the way he arrogantly put himself over and belittled the other Cruiserweights and called 205 Live irrelevant. He also made reference to the fans shouting you can't wrestle.

Either way I enjoyed the promo and think it's fair to say this is far from a punishment. The headlining spot on Raw and having a whole division and Network show built around him.

The thing is even if Enzo is obnoxious and irritating backstage does that really justify a on screen burial? Having a larger than life over the top personality is more often than not the most important trait a WWE superstar can have and I'm sure Vince McMahon appreciates that.

Plus figures were dropping each week, so by putting a big mouth at the top of the show who can draw the crowds in just to see what he says next is a very smart move. Enzo does shift merchandise and one report has said Enzo will be a heel to the wrestlers but a face to the fans due to how good a talker he is. Very smart move from Vince and co.

I actually like that they seem to be moving away from the clear cut babyface/heel divide. More and more characters seem to be more 'grey area' like Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman and now Enzo. Sometimes they may act heelish other times more face depending on who they're feuding with. It makes things more interesting particularly during matches where things become more even sided and unpredictable rather than the traditional pantomimey good vs evil stuff.

Back to back weeks of being the last Raw segment and well deserved again.

To remember so many lines will take some doing, whilst at the same time keeping the crowd interested as he spoke for ages even before the rest of the division came out.

Some of the putdowns were top draw and the highlights video doesn't do justice to it as the full version needs to be seen.

I think he went a bit overboard on the insults / put downs if im honest .. i dont mean they were too harsh i just think he should have picked a few out because he seemed to ramble on for a while

Enzo is half decent on the mic and i think he is more suited to a heel role but the fans seem confused as to whether to cheer him or boo him at the minute

I was close to giving 205 a watch, but now they have stupidly taken the title off him already they can forget it.

He was their best hope of getting ratings up on the Network and so it doesn't make sense.

I hope he wins the title back very quickly.

I'm loving Enzo as a heel, he was entertaining as a face but as a heel he can go outside the box more with his promos and use edgier material rather than just wheeling out catch phrases.

His main event slot this week had me interested in and actually watching a Cruiserweight match for the first time since Neville was feuding with Austin Aries.

Top marks to the booking team, I was skeptical of moving Enzo to 205 Live initially and thought it was maybe a punishement but he is proven to be ratings and has sparked interest in the division. Moving forward though I think Enzo needs to bring this heat seeking gimmick to a mid-card slot with the heavyweights much like the Miz does. With his promos he will have fans desperate to see a babyface come out and destroy him.

Great match with Kalisto too and a surprise title change, but I expect Enzo to win it back fairly quickly unless they are planning to move him away from 205 Live already.

I can't imagine they'll be pulling Enzo from 205 so quickly after putting him there. If he's bringing up the buzz and ratings for 205 they'll run with it for now.

I dont think theyll move him - unless they plan on disbanding the whole 205 live thing already because with Neville walking out - moving Enzo is then meaning the 2 main players of that show are gone

The rest of the division needs some work done because i dont see who challenges Enzo after he regains against kalisto

I had hoped that with all of the non contact clauses etc - that they would build it up for a while Neville not getting the chance to go against him before finally getting his rematch and taking the title back

But based on recent events that doesnt look likely

Wasn't a fan of Enzo having help. I guess he's a full heel now, but I would keep him a lone man instead of trying to get others over by association with him.

Weird to book Enzo having friends when for the past few weeks the story has been nobody likes him.

He needs to stop his ramp mic work now to be more heelish or people will still chant along with him.
