Former WWE star Enzo Amore appeared to confirm his full departure from the company in a post on Instagram.

Amore shared a photo of Jordan Brand shoes hanging from an electrical line with the caption "I T ' S * B E E N * R E A L." He also tagged the shoes with WWE's official Instagram account:

Twitter user @JamesRollsJr noted Amore's 90-day no-compete clause with WWE expired Monday, which may be what the former cruiserweight champion was referring to.

WWE fired Amore in January amid accusations he raped a woman last October. Amore, whose real name is Eric Arndt, denied the allegations in a statement from his attorneys.

Amore's last WWE match was on the Jan. 8 edition of Raw when he lost a count-out to Cedric Alexander.
