Pro wrestler Enzo Amore, whose real name is Eric Arndt, was released by WWE today. In a statement announcing his suspension yesterday, WWE said that the organization has “has zero tolerance for matters involving sexual harassment or sexual assault.”


Before WWE’s announcement, Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Arndt is currently being investigated by Arizona police in connection with a rape allegation. Yesterday, a woman who says she was raped by Arndt tweeted an account of the alleged incident:

Her account is as follows:

Tyler and TOOPOOR invited me to their friend’s hotel to hang out with their friend and I went. Basically they got me so fucked up (coke, meth, weed) I went into psychosis. The guy told TOOPOOR & tyler that he was gonna rape me & at first they were like “please don’t like you really shouldn’t” but then they gave up and were like “okay have fun.” TOOPOOR kissed me on the cheek and they left me there with them. It was such a brutal rape like I’m still so fucked up from it I haven’t had sex since October which is when it happened. I’m in the process of pressing charges.

The guy who raped me is a famous WWE wrestler. @real1 [Arndt’s Twitter handle is @real1]

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.

According to ABC 15, local police have confirmed that they are investigating Arndt, and that the alleged incident took place on Oct. 19, 2017 at the Clarendon Hotel and Spa. FightfulOnline is reporting that Arndt was aware of the charges against him but did not disclose them to WWE:
