It's a good question.  I think there has to be a weight distribution trick to it.  I assume when you're stepping like that and have one foot in the air still, all of your weight isn't being focused on the chest (like if you step on a scale with one foot).   Andre used to use both feet and step on guys, but he would do it against the ropes and try to take some of the pressure off by leaning against them (unless he didn't like you).

Yeah, watching an old Andre match a few weeks ago watching him do it got me to thinking about it and I meant to discuss it here but forgot. Watching Strowman do it to Enzo though..damn, Enzo isn't just small, he has no real definition...

It's one of the aspects that I would like a wrestler go into, who knows what kind of misconceptions I might have

The guy may be an asshole but he sure can take bumps.

An asshole who can bump and talk, sounds like a natural heel to me. This dude may be about to breakout in a big way.

Enzo does it again. 

On Saturday Corey Graves sent a Twitter shot at Enzo saying "My son just ran to second base, and danced like @real1 to celebrate. I have failed as a father." 

Enzo fired back with "Nah u didn't fail as a father!? U failed as a wrestler, thats why they dressed ya up in a suit N tie & told ya 2 sit down #HowYouDoin #Champ"

Some feel like that was way too vicious a reply to a playful dig considering that Graves' career was prematurely ended by concussions.  Graves hasn't commented.

Funny how people complain that wrestling doesn't even try to be "real" anymore, but when someone gets some genuine heel heat, they are criticized for taking things too far. God forbid that fans in arenas boo Enzo for this.

It should be noted though that Enzo hasn't really turned heel yet.  At house shows this weekend, he was still the babyface and Neville was still the heel in their matches, but Neville won them by DQ when Enzo cheated.  So they're still playing it both ways.  Neville refused to do the Red Arrow when the fans were getting ready to pop for it, for example.

I love it! Keep it up. Roddy Piper was flat out racist as a heel and didn't get as much shit as Enzo is getting.

LOL Enzo gets shit but no one cares that Corey "I look like a Blink 182 reject" Graves started it. Enzo is growing on me by the week.

Enzo played up the twitter thing on Raw with him telling Gulak to go and sit next to Graves.

The final segment came off to me as not teaching Enzo a lesson, but Vince teaching the cruiserweights a lesson - this is how you get a personality.

It's perhaps the most interesting angle on Raw right now. Shame about the anti-climax of bringing on Kalisto, who has been killed by his Rey Mysterio Jr Jr gimmick.

It was an awesome segment and the fans totally got into it...and then Kalisto was the surprise and the air came out of the room.

The surprise thing was probably a bad idea. I struggle to think of who they could have brought out there in the cruiserweight division that would have had any impact in that role short of bringing back Rey Mysterio who likely wouldn't have slotted into that division anyway. Kalisto certainly wasn't going to fit in that role.
