Philomena Sheahan, who accuses Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore) of raping her in October 2017, spoke with TMZ on Tuesday. She accused Arndt of picking her up, ripping her tights off, and “completely started sexually assaulting me.” Sheahan said she told Arndt no “countless times” and told him that she wanted to get to know him first. She also stated that she pleaded with him to stop, but he threw her onto the bed and she struck her head in the process and “literally passed out.” She said she didn’t know how long she was passed out for, but states that Arndt was still engaged in intercourse with her when she woke up.

Powell’s POV: WWE announced that the company and Arndt agreed to the terms of his contractual release on Tuesday. TMZ noted in their story that they reached out to Arndt unsuccessfully for comment multiple times. Sheahan spoke with the Phoenix, Arizona police department a few days after the incident. The investigation is ongoing as of this update.
