WWE Superstar and current Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore has been suspended after being accused on Twitter of raping a woman in October. "They ARE NOT good people", she wrote. The statement from the company was just one sentence long and provided no further information other than the fact that Amore is no longer under their employ.

Amore's time in WWE was not without controversy, however, as he had reportedly been ostracized behind the scenes for his brash, egotistical, hard-partying behavior.

When the allegations surfaced on Monday the WWE initially responded by suspending the wrestler.

In a statement a WWE spokesperson said: "WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving sexual harassment or sexual assault".

Phoenix police said the alleged assault happened in mid-October at the Clarendon Hotel and Spa, according to local station ABC15. The alleged incident is now being investigated by police. Arndt who goes by the name Enzo Amore apparently has received a blow ahead of the Raw 25 anniversary after the decision was made to punish him pending the investigation into the case.

Wrestler Enzo Amore was sacked by the WWE Tuesday just a day after he was accused online of sexual assault.
