WWE star Enzo Amore has been suspended after an Arizona woman accused him of rape. On January 22, Miss Gucci Witch aka Philomena Sheahan, 19, took to Twitter and wrote, “OKAY..it’s been long enough & I have been so so scared to share this. I was raped in mid October by the WWE Enzo Amore (also known as Eric Arden) & Tyler Grosso & TOOPOOR let it happen as accomplices. I was in a mental hospital for 45 days after it. They ARE NOT good people.”
Amore, real name Eric Arndt, was suspended a few hours after Philomena made her accusation. In a statement, the company said, “Until this matter is resolved, Eric Arndt has been suspended.” Less than 24 hours later, Amore was fired by the WWE. TMZ reports that on October 19, Phoenix police responded to a hospital in the city after a woman said she had been raped. The gossip site says that the investigation is still considered “open.”

1. Philomena Is also Accusing Fashion Gurus Tyler Grosso & Too Poor of Being Involved
Shortly after making her initial allegation, Philomena shared a longer post about the events of October 19:
The original question TOOPOOR asked me was if I would suck Enzo’s d***. I said possibly but if I wasn’t down she said we could all just hang out. Then they got me way f***** up & they left knowing what was about to happen. When Enzo the WWE guy stared coming on to me I was passed out on the couch. I said “I want to get to know you first before doing anything.”
He replied, “B**** I have 1million followers on instagram…you should be begging for this d***.” & then he restrained me & it happened. I never would be this dramatic about something like this but I want you all to know that I would’ve left if I could. I was in psychosis- I had no idea what was going on. I remember bits &pieces & I have constant flashbacks..My mental issues have been the worst ever & i suffer from major PTSD from it.
