WWE issued the following statement to Prowrestling.net on Monday to announce the suspension of Enzo Amore (Eric Arndt).
“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.”
Powell’s POV: WWE is taking the corporately responsible approach by suspending Amore until the situation plays out. That said, he will have a chance to tell his side of the story. See her tweet below and visit her Twitter page to read her allegations.
Update: WWE has added the statement on the suspension to the WWE website.
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
