Former WWE star Enzo Amore had his sexual assault case closed due to insufficient evidence.  

Amore tweeted out a statement from his attorney, Tom Cargill, announcing the decision from the Phoenix Police Department:

In an interview with TMZ Sports, Philomena Sheahan said Amore assaulted her at a Phoenix hotel in October and she passed out after hitting her head when he threw her onto a bed.

"I said 'no' countless times," Sheahan told TMZ. "I just kept saying 'no.'"

WWE released Amore on Jan. 23, one day after the company indefinitely suspended him. He denied the allegations in a statement issued by Timothy J. Eckstein of Phoenix

"Over the last two days, Philomena Sheahan has made multiple public accusations against Eric Arndt (also known as Enzo Amore with the WWE), including allegations of sexual misconduct concerning an October 2017 incident in Phoenix. Mr. Arndt fully and unequivocally denies those accusations. He is cooperating with the authorities in this matter and looks forward to having it resolved in a timely manner. Neither Mr. Arndt nor his counsel will be making any further public comments on this matter."

Amore signed with WWE in 2012 and made his main roster debut in April 2016 as part of a tag team with Big Cass.
