One of the most prominent news stories over the past few months is that of the rape allegations against former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore. It now appears that the case has reached a conclusion.
The allegations arose from Philomena Sheahan, a woman who claims Amore had raped her with the help of TOO POOR and Tyler Grosso while at a Phoenix, Arizona nightclub. Sheahan also attempted at one point to include Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns as backup for Amore.
Throughout the past few months, it has appeared that Sheahan has gone back and forth on her own statements, contradicting what she said. This led many to believe Sheahan was lying.
Within the past half an hour, Amore has released a statement created by his personal general counsel that concludes the saga, confirming Amore was indeed innocent.
The statement reads:
“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. Arndt 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.”

It seems that we can now close the book on this case, as Amore has officially been found innocent. As the statement reads, it seems as if Amore is now pursuing his rap career further as opposed to returning to WWE.
