According to Felix Upton of Ringside News, Amore will team with Jack Cartwheel and Starboy Charlie in a six-man tag match against Ryusuke Taguchi, Rich Swann and The DKC.

A former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Amore was suspended and eventually released from the company in Jan. 2018 following sexual assault allegations. He attended the Survivor Series pay-per-view in November of that year as a spectator, and he was removed from the event by security after standing in his seat and causing a disruption.

After leaving WWE, Amore competed on the independent circuit and made appearances for Ring of Honor and Major League Wrestling, among other promotions.
