WWE News: Enzo Amore was at Barclays Center; allegedly sent home by Vince McMahon after sexual assault allegations
What's the story?
There was some doubt as to the timeline of events surrounding Enzo Amore's suspension after being levelled with sexual assault allegations during the night of RAW 25, an event that Amore, as current Cruiserweight Champion, was expected to appear in. It can now be confirmed that Amore was present at the Barclays Center and likely to feature in the show.
In case you didn't know...
Just before RAW 25 Enzo Amore was suspended after news of an ongoing sexual assault investigation against the WWE Superstar broke, with the alleged victim accusing Amore of raping her via Twitter. The following day the current Cruiserweight Champion was released by the company.
The heart of the matter
It's unclear how much Enzo Amore's suspension affected RAW's 25th Anniversary show, but it has now been confirmed that the wrestler was present at the Barclays Center and was interacting with fans as this Facebook post indicates.
Amore also posted several videos on his own Instagram account detailing several meets and greets he took park in before RAW 25. When news of the sexual assault allegations broke, these videos were swiftly removed from Amore's social media.
Wrestling news Twitter account WrestleVotes also suggested that Enzo was present and actually sent home by Vince McMahon himself, who made it clear under no uncertain terms that he had to leave. However, this currently remains unverified.
It's worth noting that at this point Enzo Amore's release from the company is not because he has been found guilty, but rather because the WWE weren't aware of the investigation into their employee, which had been ongoing since October.
Currently, Amore has not been arrested or charged with any of the crimes he has allegedly committed, but the investigation is still ongoing. Many wrestling sites have reached out for details of the police report, but have been told it could take 'some time' to be given to journalists.
Please do not post in the comments whether or not you think he's innocent or she's lying. None of us can possibly know, all we're here to do is present the information and leave the question of whether anyone is innocent or guilty to the professionals, who actually have all of the information.
