Enzo Amore

Current WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore has been suspended by WWE based on sexual assault allegations brought forth over an alleged incident back in 2017.

According to a report by Pro Wrestling Sheet, Amore (Eric Arndt) is being accused of raping a woman in a hotel room last October in Phoenix, Arizona.

The woman – who wishes to remain unnamed – went public with the story on Twitter on Monday, sharing a detailed account about her alleged incident with Amore last year.

A representative for the Phoenix Police Department confirmed a report was filed and that it remains under investigation. The “bulk of the investigation” is said to be complete and police are simply waiting on lab results at the moment.

WWE issued the following statement:

“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving sexual harassment or sexual assault. Until this matter is resolved, Eric Arndt (aka Enzo Amore) has been suspended.”

Amore wrestled at both 205 Live events in Lowell and Poughkeepsie over the weekend.
