Enzo Amore

WWE announced the release of Enzo Amore (Eric Arndt) on Tuesday afternoon.

Amore, who was the current reigning and defending WWE Cruiserweight Champion, was suspended by the company on Monday over sexual assault allegations dating back to an incident in Phoenix, Arizona last year by an unidentified woman.

We reported earlier this morning that WWE pulled the originally scheduled WWE Cruiserweight Championship match between Amore and Cedric Alexander off the card for the Royal Rumble PPV this Sunday in Philadelphia.

Amore had just spent the weekend wrestling for WWE at the first ever 205 Live branded events in Lowell, Massachusetts and Poughkeepsie, New York. Due to his suspension, Amore did not appear at the RAW 25th Anniversary show last night.

You can view WWE’s official statement below:

“WWE has come to terms on the release of Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore).”

No word at this time what this means for the Cruiserweight Championship.
