Enzo Amore Case Closed

The former WWE Superstar posted a letter from his attorney on Twitter.

Eric Arndt - otherwise known as former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore - today posted a letter on his official Twitter page. The letter, written by his personal general counsel Tom Cargill, refers to an allegation of rape made against Arndt in January 2018.

With regard to this allegation, the letter states:

'The Phoenix Police Department recently informed Mr. Arndt and his counsel that there is insufficient evidence in the 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.'

Arndt was suspended by WWE on January 22 as part of their zero tolerance policy for matters involving sexual harassment and sexual assault. He was fired the next day, and has been mostly silent on social media ever since.

It is unclear what Arndt intends to do next, although his attorney's letter hinted at attempting to move into some form of entertainment away from professional wrestling:

'Mr. Arndt is working diligently towards his next venture in the entertainment industry and looks forward to reconnecting with his fans in a big way in the very near future.'

From an entirely wrestling standpoint, Arndt's release has undoubtedly changed the face of WWE's cruiserweight division. His firing prompted the vacating of the Cruiserweight Championship which he was holding at the time, and led to a tournament to determine the new champion.

The tournament was well-received in terms of match quality, and culminated with a WrestleMania 34 pre-show bout between Mustafa Ali and eventual winner Cedric Alexander.
