Either way, it was his toxic behavior in general that even led to him being in that position. There are stories about Enzo's behavior that have nothing to do with the allegations. I used to like the guy but he was 10x worse than Rush backstage and I don't blame them for letting him go after so many chances

Adding to the above, it wasn't even the fact that the rape investigation itself that even got him fired. It was the fact that he didn't tell them about it that did. Imagine you're in WWE's situation, and one of the guys you're trying to push as a champion at the time had an ongoing rape investigation and he didn't tell you about it. Wouldn't you be fucking pissed?

I think he is a good talker and got some acting skills, but 300k for one year? Seriously, I highly doubt that. Maybe these numbers are spread to drive AEW crazy. If Lio, who just did a bit midcard stuff, starts with 300k, how much costs the whole roster and the staff then?

WWE claims that their average performer makes $500000 a year.

Keeping in mind that WWE is very likely using the mean here instead of the median so the contracts of guys like Cena, Lesnar and Reigns are going to raise this average up significantly. So you're probably looking at $200000-$300000 per year for an average contract. Which is right around what they're offering Lio.

That’s if you want to believe WWE. Enzo (backed by the police) came out and said he was made aware when we were.

Also, it’s laughable to say he wasn’t cleared just because he wasn’t prosecuted and wasn’t ‘found guilty’. The crazy bitch came out and SAID she was lying.

Yeah he is hella talented. Better version of Enzo amore. However he seems to be hard to handle backstage but he is a young kid and I doubt it was all due to him. Some of it will be wwe's fault as well

Enzo swears he found out the same time WWE did, which kind of makes sense, the police investigation was taking place in Arizona, he was living in LA and was on the road at the time, the police might've had trouble getting in contact with him. Also cops sometimes like to do preliminary investigating before getting a statement from the accused so they can catch them in lies or pressure a confession.

Enzo's an A grade bullshitter so take what he says with a grain of salt, but it's more than plausible he got blindsided with that.

WWE is so full of it, they would've fired him regardless.

That would likely result in a wrongful termination lawsuit from Enzo.

Not true since CT (which is where the WWE headquarters is) is an At will state. They can fire you for any reason they want.

Plus I am going to bet WWE has wording in all contracts they can fire you at any time for any reason they want and you wont sue because of it
