WWE suspends Cruiserweight champ Enzo Amore.
WWE Cruiserweight champion, Enzo Amore, has been suspended by the company amid rape allegations that surfaced yesterday, just hour before WWE's 25th anniversary episode of Monday Night Raw.
Enzo, real name Eric Arndt, is being investigated by police in Arizona for the alleged incident that reportedly took place last year inside a hotel room.
The unnamed woman came forward on twitter last night with graphic details about her alleged encounter with Enzo, which she says took place in October. She writes (H/T Pro Wrestling Sheet):
“OKAY..it’s been long enough & I have been so so scared to share this. I was raped in mid October by the WWE Enzo Amore (also known as Eric Arden) & Tyler Grosso & TOOPOOR let it happen as accomplices. I was in a mental hospital for 45 days after it. They ARE NOT good people.”
"The original question TOOPOOR asked me was if I would suck Enzo’s dick. I said possibly but if I wasn’t down she said we could all just hang out. Then they got me way fucked up & they left knowing what was about to happen. When Enzo the WWE guy stared coming on to me I was passed out on the couch. I said “I want to get to know you first before doing anything.” He replied, “Bitch I have 1million followers on instagram…you should be begging for this dick.” & then he restrained me & it happened. I never would be this dramatic about something like this but I want you all to know that I would’ve left if I could. I was in psychosis- I had no idea what was going on. I remember bits &pieces & I have constant flashbacks..My mental issues have been the worst ever & i suffer from major PTSD from it."
WWE issued the following statement regarding the allegations, "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."
The 31-year old Crusierweight Champ was scheduled to defend his title against Cedric Alexander at the annual Royal Rumble PPV this Sunday, January 28th.
