WWE fires Enzo Amore after rape accusation as wrestling star denies claims

WWE fires Enzo Amore after rape accusation as wrestling star denies claims

A woman has come forward on Twitter with the accusation that Amore - who is WWE's current cruiserweight champion - raped her a year ago in an Arizona hotel room. They ARE NOT good people, ' Sheahan wrote in a tweet.

The 31-year-old has been immediately suspended by the company, just hours before he was due to appear on a marquee wrestling broadcast in NY.

According to WrestleVotes, a Twitter account with an ear inside WWE, Vince McMahon gave Amore the boot upon seeing him Monday evening. This would seem to indicate that Enzo's firing was due to a violation of the morals clause in his WWE contract and not because of their zero tolerance policy regarding sexual assault.

A spokesperson for the Phoenix Police Department confirmed that the alleged incident was under investigation and that there was an official report filed about it in October.

Yesterday, a woman made allegations of a rape committed by Enzo Amore (real name Eric Arndt), which occurred on October 19, public on Twitter. She alleged that after the wrestler and two friends got her under the influence of drugs, Arndt restrained her and raped her.

Police told Phoenix television station ABC-TV that Arndt was being investigated after an incident at a downtown hotel in October.

Arndt began wrestling for WWE in 2012.

Amore, who was the Cruiserweight Champion, was scheduled to defend his title at next Monday's Royal Rumble against Cedric Alexander. When he was released, he was WWE's cruiserweight champion. In the recent case of Rich Swann's arrest for battery, WWE were quick to point out they would stand by the performer until proven guilty, whilst also suspending him.
