Adam Rose (real name Raymond Leppan) was arrested early Wednesday morning at his home in Florida for battery domestic violence and tampering with a witness.
According to the police report, Rose and his wife were arguing when he grabbed his wife by the face. Rose’s wife then attempted to call the police but Rose took the phone from her. Rose admitted this to police when they arrived at the scene.
The WWE issued the following statement:
“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Raymond Leppan has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.”
Rose is also in the middle of serving a suspension in the WWE for violation their wellness policy.
JC’s Take: Adam Rose’s life has taken a tumble over the last few weeks. First the suspension for violating the wellness policy, now this. The tampering with a witness charge is a felony in Florida. I’m not a law person, but that sounds like a pretty loose interpretation of that law in Florida. At this point I would be shocked if Rose returned to the WWE. He never really hit his stride on the main roster. His party-time gimmick only had legs in NXT, and he never really recovered once that bombed. Hopefully Rose gets his life back on track in the coming weeks.
