Hospitalized Enzo Amore chronicles his unique New Year’s Day

The flu prevented Enzo Amore from defending his WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander tonight on a special New Year’s Day edition of Raw, but nothing could keep The Certified G from taking to Instagram to share his unfortunate predicament and his unsuccessful attempt to enter the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.

“I apologize to the fans who won’t get to see a #G tonight in #Miami ... I did everything I could from Toronto to Miami... From negative weather, through customs, to opting out on Diddy’s nye party in Miami, 10 hrs in a hospital, I did everything in my power to make sure I would be in that ring tonight to whoop Cedric Alexander’s hind-end ... Ultimately: it was outta my hands. And I got the best freakin hands,” Amore wrote on Instagram.

Following his hospitalization, Amore traveled to the AmericanAirlines Arena, and was told by WWE’s medical staff, following an evaluation, that he should return to the hospital for further treatment.
