WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore has been suspended by WWE following an investigation by police in Arizona for an alleged rape of a woman in a hotel room last year.
WWE issued the following statement on Amore's suspension:
“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.”
A woman on Twitter known as 'MissGucciwitch' publicly accused the WWE Superstar of rape. The incident is alleged to have taken place in October 2017 in a hotel where she claims Enzo restrained her before he raped her.
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. pic.twitter.com/VhyG6oaDwg— philomena (@missgucciwitch) January 22, 2018
