On January 22, 2018 Enzo Amore was suspended indefinitely by WWE due to a s****l assault charge brought against him by a girl from Phoenix (Arizona) dating back to three months earlier; the next day he was officially released by the federation and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship was made vacant.
On November 18, 2018, during the pay-per-view of the WWE Survivor Series at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (California), Eric Arndt attended the show without being recognized and, during the match between AOP and The Bar, he got up in feet on a chair creating disorder; shortly thereafter he was taken away by security personnel and banned for life from the (legit) arena.
In WWE, he came to prominence for his partnership with Big Cass, whom he teamed with from 2013 to 2017. Together, they won the NXT Year-End Award for Tag Team of the Year in 2015. He was later moved to the 205 Live brand, where he was a two-time Cruiserweight Champion.
Since leaving WWE, he has also embarked on a rap music career initially under the name Real1, but now goes under the same name he uses on the independent circuit. In an interview with Chris Van Vliet, he discussed WWE’s decision to go on with WrestleMania 36: “Horrendous.
You asked for my honest opinion. I’ve had more wrestling matches in an empty Performance Center, and oh my God, I couldn’t imagine being told that I’m going back there to do WrestleMania. I feel for the Bayleys and the Charlottes, the Sashas of the world.
The Corbins and the Elias Sampsons. That have had these countless matches under that same umbrella, just like fuck. I can’t wait to pop Michael Cole sitting ringside, if I can get a fucking pop out of Jerry Lawler, my day will be made here at WrestleMania”.
