WWE has released cruiserweight champion Enzo Amore from his contract, following a sexual assault allegation against the wrestler.

According to BuzzFeed News, a woman named Philomena, whose last name hasn't been reported, took to her Twitter account last night and alleged that Arndt raped her in a hotel room last October.

Amore was accused of rape on Monday by a Twitter user with the handle @MissGucciWitch."OKAY.it's been long enough & I have been so so scared to share this".

Sheahan claims Amore was hitting on her hard in a Phoenix hotel room on October 19 - and tried to slow him down. telling him, "I want to get to know you first".

Police are now investigating the incident.


"WWE has come to terms on the release of Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore)", the company wrote in a brief statement on its website. The woman claims Enzo then restrained her and, "it happened".

Enzo Amore was scheduled to defend his cruiserweight title against Cedric Alexander at the Royal Rumble this coming Sunday.

When the allegations surfaced on Monday the WWE initially responded by suspending the wrestler. The police are now investigating the issue so more details won't be made until they release it to the public.

WWE suspended Amore ahead of RAW's massive 25th-anniversary show. "This case is under investigation", Ryan Satin of ProWestlingSheet has said. It's unclear if WWE received the results of the lab work or more information about the investigation before making the decision to part ways with Arndt. He had been with the WWE since signing a developmental deal in 2012.

At the No Mercy 2017 pay-per-view event, Enzo won the Cruiserweight championship after beating former WWE superstar Neville via a low blow.
