After recent serious allegations were levied against him on social media, the WWE have announced they have released Enzo Amore.
In a statement they released last night after suspending Amore, the WWE wrote this about the situation:
"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."
Now nearly 24 hours after that statement WWE officially announced that they have come to terms with their Cruiserweight Champion's release from the company in another press release:
"WWE has come to terms on the release of Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore)."
Amore was signed by WWE back in 2012 with no prior wrestling experience. He made several promos on a video compilation and sent it Triple H through a mutual friend.
That mutual friend was Joe DeFranco, who Amore trained with at DeFranco's Training Systems gym in Wyckoff, New Jersey. Amore had been training with DeFranco since he was 16-years-old, and Triple H had also trained with DeFranco throughout the years as well.
Amore was signed to an NXT deal and later paired with Big Cass to form a huge fan favorite tag team. In 2016 they were called up to the main roster where they were one of the top teams on Monday Night RAW.
After being unable to capture the RAW Tag Team Titles, Cass turned on Amore and the pair split their separate ways a singles competitors. Amore was eventually moved to 205 Live as a Cruiserweight and would defeat Neville to capture the division's title.
In the middle of his title reign, however, WWE has now decided it was best to release Amore in light of recent serious allegations.
What do you think will be next for the Cruiserweight Title that he leaves behind? And what does this mean for 205 Live, which had poor interest before Amore joined on? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
