Adam Rose (a/k/a Ray Leppan) appeared in a Florida court on Thursday following his arrest on charges of battery domestic violence and tampering with a witness. TMZ.com reports that the judge wanted issue a restraining order, but Rose’s wife begged the court to reconsider. Rose’s wife noted that they have a special needs child who needs both parents. The judge brought up a previous domestic incident in March, but ultimately held off on the restraining order. The judge ordered Rose to visit his pastor once a week until he goes to corner in June.
Powell’s POV: WWE issued the following statement on Thursday on the matter: “WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Raymond Leppan has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.” Are they aware of the previous domestic incident? Either way, it’s not looking good for Rose, who was already serving a 60-day suspension for his second Wellness Policy violation.
