Former WWE Superstar Ryback (The Big Guy) recently sounded off on the Enzo Amore/WWE situation on his Conversation With The Big Guy podcast.
As The Big Guy explained, Amore was released by the company after being accused of raping Philomena Sheehan.
“Enzo Amore is a very talented performer who is being accused of rape that happened last year somewhere in Arizona. It’s being investigated but no official charges have been filed. It is under investigation,” Ryback said. “He did not tell WWE about it, so eventually the girl went on social media and started tweeting some sh*t, and supposedly there’s conflicting reports where her friends said they were out all night and having a good time, it’s one of those cases, but it’s one of those things that they don’t take lightly.”
The Big Guy would go on to elaborate, talking about how Amore would’ve likely ended up losing his job with WWE regardless of how he handled the situation.
“I understand why he didn’t tell WWE because if he didn’t do anything he would have been fired or suspended last year because that company won’t back you in anything, especially something like that because they will just drop you,” Ryback said. “They may bring you back at some point but the damage was already done. He hasn’t been up there that long and you look at it like you are making that money and you keep wanting to make that money and you are not sure that they are going to bring you back, but I am going off the assumption that he didn’t do anything and why he didn’t tell them because again, if he did he would have been fired or suspended last year and not been paid so he was preserving that and hoping that it wouldn’t come out, but it did.
“I don’t know what happened or didn’t happen, but I am just saying that it is a tough situation,” he continued. “It’s one of those unfortunate things where you can be in a good position to no position really quickly. I wish the best for him and all that no matter what happens. Hopefully it is something he didn’t do. I find it difficult to believe someone would do that but you never know.”
