Enzo Amore

On the day he was officially released from WWE, the legal team of Eric Arndt (aka Enzo Amore) released a statement via Arndt's Twitter account:

"Over the last two days, Philomena Sheahan has made multiple public allegations against Eric Arndt (also known as Enzo Amore with the WWE), including allegations of sexual misconduct concerning an October 2017 incident in Phoenix. Mr. Arndt fully and unequivicoally denies these accusations. He is cooperating with the authorities in this matter and looks forward to having it resolved in a timely manner. Neither Mr. Arndt nor his counsel will be making any further public comments on this matter."

On Monday via Twitter, Sheahan accused Arndt of raping her on October 19th. Phoenix police confirmed they responded to a call from the local hospital on October 23rd for an incident that reportedly occurred on the 19th. Sheahan spoke with TMZ and told her side of the story which was very graphic and troubling.

WWE released Arndt Tuesday after initially suspending him.
