The Phoenix Police Department, Arizona, decided to cease its investigation into Enzo Amore accused of having sexually abused Philomena Sheanan because “there was not enough evidence” to bring charges against the fighter.
Enzo Amore has been removed from the charges that blamed him for the situation of sexual harassment for which he was accused at the end of 2017 and for which he was fired from WWE as confirmed by the Enzo on his official Twitter account. As confirmed by the police statement, not enough evidence has been found to blame Amore for the facts, leaving the investigation totally closed. These data, however, have not been corroborated by the courts and still awaits to hear the official resolution.
Amore published a statement in this regard written by his lawyer, Tom Cargill, which reported that the case was largely closed due to the “low credibility and lack of truth ” that had the accusation of Sheanan. In addition, the text emphasized the future projects of the former Cruiserweight Champion and hinted that he might try to return to WWE.

“On January 22, 2018, Eric Arndt (also known as Enzo Amore for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)) was accused, via the internet and social media, of misconduct during an alleged incident in Phoenix, Arizona, several months earlier. Prior to that date, no law enforcement or any other ofﬁcials had contacted Mr. Arndt regarding such claims. However, after the careless, unfounded tirade on social media, Mr. Arndt learned of these accusations when his counsel reached out to Phoenix Police. Subsequently, and as evidenced by the vast amount of online admissions and other publicly available information, it was soon clear that the accuser exhibited a complete lack of truth or credibility. At all times, Mr. Arndt fully and unequivocally denied such accusations and remained conﬁdent in clearing his name.
The Phoenix Police Department recently informed Mr. Arndt and his counsel that there is insufficient evidence in this 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.
Mr. Arndt expresses his gratitude for the enormous amount of support from his fans and followers during this time period. The support has carried him through these events and opened his eyes to the faith and loyalty of those who have cheered and followed his career. This experience has further taught Mr. Arndt to be cautious with his personal associations because false, defamatory, and unfounded accusations can alter and impact the lives and careers of the falsely accused and their families. Mr. Arndt is working diligently toward his next venture in the entertainment industry and looks forward to reconnecting with his fans in a big way in the very near future.”
There is still no indication that WWE will re-hire the fighter but the truth is that with this evidence a negotiation would be much more feasible since from the legal aspect there is no reason to maintain suspicions about Amore.
However, his erratic behavior that earned him being expelled from the Superstars bus could become his biggest problem to solve if he sought reintegration in the company.
