There’s even a video of the altercation.
The online beef between Joey Janela and Eric Arndt (formerly known as Enzo Amore in WWE) spilled out into the real world on Tuesday night as the two wrestlers allegedly threw down in a real fist fight.
The altercation occurred at a Blink-182 and Lil Wayne concert at the PNC Bank Arts Center, an outdoor venue in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Arndt was the first to tweet about the incident, insulting Janela and accusing him of running away when Arndt tried to fight him.

Janela, who now works for upstart All Elite Wrestling, confirmed that he and Arndt got into it after he went up to introduce himself.
Not a work, So i saw the dude and walked up and said “Hi I’m Joey Janela” at the blink 182 show and we proceeded to have (I’m not lennox lewis) to have the shittiest fist fight of the year, I’m not a pussy but we had fun!— Bad Boy Joey Janela (@JANELABABY) July 10, 2019
Arndt posted a video on Twitter on Wednesday morning showing the two New Jerseyites 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 that there is more footage of the fight that Arndt did not share.
He didn’t even post the whole video Lmfaooooo— Bad Boy Joey Janela (@JANELABABY) July 10, 2019
The dispute between the two wrestlers started after Arndt and the former Big Cass (now wrestling as nZo and CazXL) controversially crashed a Ring of Honor event at Madison Square Garden. Janela tweeted that Arndt “makes a joke out of the wrestling business” and challenged him to a legitimate fight at a future indie event.
This year in pro wrestling just could not get more absurd.
