The sexual assault case against Enzo Amore closed with no charges filed.
Former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore
has broken his silence after the police investigation into an alleged sexual assault that led to his firing from WWE in January. WWE
has a strict policy on these issues but normally suspends wrestlers until a court verdict. However, the general consensus is that Amore was fired for not telling WWE about the police investigation earlier, waiting until it was publicized on Twitter. Amore was Cruiserweight Champion at the time of his firing, and the entire 205 Live brand had to be retooled after his sudden departure.
On January 22, 2018, Eric Arndt
(also known as Enzo Amore for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)) was accused, via the internet and social media, of misconduct during an alleged incident in Phoenix, Arizona, several months earlier. Prior to that date, no law enforcement or any other officials
had contacted Mr. Arndt regarding such claims. However, after the careless, unfounded tirade on social media, Mr. Amdt learned of these accusations when his counsel reached out to Phoenix Police. Subsequently, and as evidenced by the vast amount of online admissions and other publicly available
information, it was soon clear that the accuser exhibited a complete lack of truth or credibility. At all times, Mr. Arndt fully and unequivocally denied such accusations and remained confident in clearing his name.

The Phoenix Police Department recently informed Mr. Arndt and his counsel that there is insufficient evidence in this matter to warrant any criminal charges, that the matter will not be transferred to the County Attorney for prosecution, and that their investigation and case is closed.
No charges were ever filed. The matter is closed.
Mr. Arndt expresses his gratitude for the enormous amount of support from his fans and followers during this time period. The support has carried him through these events and opened his eyes to the faith and loyalty of those who have cheered and followed his career. This experience has further taught Mr. Arndt to be cautious with his personal associations because false, defamatory, and unfounded accusations can alter and impact the lives and careers of the falsely accused and their families. Mr. Arndt is working diligently toward his next venture in the entertainment industry and looks forward to reconnecting with his fans in a big way in the very near future
A representative for the Phoenix Police Department stated, “The case has been investigated to its fullest extent, while working with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. The case has been closed. This would not preclude the case from reopening, should new evidence come to light.”Sheahan’s allegation ultimately leads to Amore’s firing, but early reports had WWE decision to releases Enzo based in his neglecting to inform them of the accusations. However, in this document, Enzo’s attorney asserts that Enzo was never aware of the charges and thus could never hide them from WWE.
This all began when Sheahan took her account public in a January tweet:“OKAY..it’s been long enough & I have been so so scared to share this,” she wrote. “I was raped in mid-October by the WWE Enzo Amore (also known as Eric Arden) & Tyler Grosso & TOO POOR let it happen as accomplices. I was in a mental hospital for 45 days after it. They ARE NOT good people.”]]>
