Enzo Amore has posted a public statement following the recent accusations made about him and his recent release from WWE off the back of them.
It has been a whirlwind 24 hours in the world of Enzo Amore. On Monday a woman on Twitter named Philomena Sheahan opened up about an alleged incident that took place in October during which she claims that she was assaulted by Amore, whose real name is Eric Arndt.
Once the news broke WWE released a statement informing fans that Amore had been suspended pending the result of the investigation of the alleged sexual assault. Then on Tuesday WWE released a further statement declaring that they had decided to release Amore from his contract. The statement from the company was just one sentence long and provided no further information other than the fact that Amore is no longer under their employ.

It wasn't until Tuesday evening that Amore himself first spoke out about the accusations and released a statement that has clearly been drafted with the help of his lawyer. Amore posted a screenshot of the statement on Twitter which you can read in full below. It basically lists the accusations made against the former WWE Superstar, that he denies them ever taking place, and that he is currently working with authorities as they investigate the claims of sexual assault made against him.
Amore was due to defend his Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander this Sunday night at the Royal Rumble, but now he has been released the title has obviously been vacated. What exactly will happen with it is yet to be revealed and considering the severity of the accusations made against their now former employee, the title likely isn't the number one priority for WWE in this situation.
The allegations made by Amore's accuser are extremely serious ones so it is understandable that WWE decided to release him before the investigation has reached its conclusion. It feels like new details about the case are emerging every few hours so expect to hear more about these accusations and the ongoing investigation in the coming days.
