The Phoenix Police Department will not be filing any charges against former WWE wrestler Enzo Amore (Eric Arndt).
A statement issued by Amore’s lawyer Tom Cargill says police found “insufficient evidence” to file any criminal charges against Amore and the case has been closed.
Representing Amore, Cargill categorized the allegations of a Twitter user named “@missgucciwitch” (AKA: Philomena) as “careless” and that she “exhibited a complete lack of truth or credibility”.
In January, Amore was terminated by the WWE after the allegations were revealed. Although the investigation had been on-going for a few months Cargill insists that no law enforcement officials had contacted Amore about the case.
“@missgucciwitch” alleged Amore sexually assaulted her in a Phoenix hotel. Amore has always maintained his innocence.
Cargill also states Amore is working on his “next venture in the entertainment industry” and wants to reconnect with his fans, is grateful for their support.
It is not known if Amore will be speaking to the WWE about returning to the company or not.
Amore began his career in NXT in 2012 and for four years he competed in the tag team scene with his partner and real-life friend, Colin Cassady.
In 2016, Big Cass and Amore made the jump to the main roster, vying for but failing to win the tag team titles. Later, Cass attacked Amore backstage ending their partnership. They feuded until Big Cass was injured and Amore was then shipped off to 205 Live, the cruiserweight division while Cass rehabbed his knee.
Amore became a two-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion. When the WWE fired Amore, he was the Cruiserweight Champion so with the belt vacated they scheduled a tournament to crown a new champion. The tournament concluded with Cedric Alexander defeating Mustafa Ali at WrestleMania.
