WWE and Enzo Amore have parted ways less than one day after he was suspended amid allegations of sexual assault. In a statement on the company’s website, it says, “WWE has come to terms on the release of Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore).” The original story continues below.
As WWE was celebrating the 25th anniversary of Raw, there was a notable face missing from the show: WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore. That’s because Amore has been suspended indefinitely from the company after allegations of sexual assault were made against him.
The situation was first brought to light on Twitter when a woman claimed she was raped by Amore–real name Eric Arndt–in October. According to the woman, two other people gave her cocaine, marijuana, and meth, leaving her impaired. She was then left alone with Amore, who allegedly assaulted her. As a result of the attack, the woman says she was admitted to a mental hospital.
Police in Phoenix, where the alleged assault took place, say that they are investigating the matter. They also confirm being called to an area hospital in late October to look into the incident.
