WWE has suspended Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore over allegations of sexual assault.
According to a report this afternoon by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Amore — real name Eric Arndt — is being investigated by police in Arizona for allegedly raping a woman last year inside a hotel room.
“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving sexual harassment or sexual assault,” a WWE rep said in a statement to Satin. Until this matter is resolved, Eric Arndt (aka Enzo Amore) has been suspended.”
WWE also issued the statement to ESPN and various other news outlets.
The woman — who didn’t want to be named — came forward with her story on Twitter today and shared graphic details of the alleged assault that she claims took place last October.
She wrote, “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 women then shared additional details, which can be read in full below:
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.
Here is her original tweet.
