World Wrestling Leisure has launched its Cruiserweight champion Enzo Amore (actual title Eric Arndt) following allegations he sexually assaulted a lady in a resort room final 12 months.
WWE stated in an announcement, “WWE has come to phrases on the discharge of Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore).” The group didn’t instantly reply to request for additional remark.
The allegations have been made on Monday evening by a lady named Philomena on her Twitter account. The girl, who requested that her surname be withheld, claimed Arndt raped her in a resort room in mid-October.
Arndt first broke onto the skilled wrestling scene in 2012 by means of WWE’s developmental model, NXT. There, he wrestled as Enzo Amore and established himself as a future star with tag-teammate Massive Cass (actual title Colin Cassady). He was promoted to WWE’s flagship program, Monday Evening Uncooked, in 2016.
A spokesperson for the Phoenix Police Division confirmed to BuzzFeed Information report was filed and a case was below investigation.
“On Monday, October 23, 2017, at round 2:30pm, Phoenix Police responded to a neighborhood hospital for a name of a sexual assault that had reportedly occurred on October 19, 2017 at 401 West Clarendon Avenue. This case is below investigation,” stated the report.
The WWE launched an announcement concerning Arndt’s suspension simply hours earlier than its 25th anniversary Monday Evening Uncooked program, which Arndt was set to function on.
“WWE has zero tolerance for issues involving sexual harassment or sexual assault. Till this matter is resolved, Eric Arndt (aka Enzo Amore) has been suspended,” the corporate stated on the time.
BuzzFeed Information has sought remark from Eric Arndt.
