    Jasus what an idiot and after proving he wasnt on drugs

    Just because he was arrested doesn't mean he's guilty lads..... though this doesn't look good, ruins his good guy image if true.

    While I agree, the timing is horrid for him. WWE were probably looking for an excuse to get rid of him and now they have it.

    to be honest he was doomed from day one, his gimmick was on the same level of cringe as the Funkasaurus and the Gobbledygooker.

    Jaysus.

    obviously lets wait and see if it's true but if so he is 100% gone. One would assume the WWE would wait before releasing him too (unless it is a cut and dry case) incase releasing him blows up in their face.

    A real surprise after how he was portrayed in that ESPN e60 show.

    That's some heel turn.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    On that ESPN special he seemed like he loved his family so much. He has a realy sick kid too.

    shocked after the suspension.

    Adam Rose arrested in Florida, charged with tampering with a witness and battery domestic violence, according to his public arrest report.

    Surely his days with the company are numbered now, though his 2nd suspension is "Iffy"

    He's finished for sure.

    And excuse my ignorance but what does tampering with a witness mean?

    A quick explanation from Wikipedia
    Witness tampering is the act of attempting to alter or prevent the testimony of witnesses within criminal or civil proceedings.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,627 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    sounds like he threatened someone so that they wouldn't report his domestic battery but I suppose they did anyway. Really contradicts the image I'd say most had because of the ESPN special but if it did happen he is sooo gone from the WWE. tbh it isn't any real loss to the company and the fact that he seemed to be such a nice guy (and have a kid in an unfortunate condition) was probably the main reason people didn't wanna see him gone before now.

    The details of his case are calling the fact that he grabbed the phone off his wife tampering with a witness.

    WWE has suspended Rose indefinitely


  • Registered Users Posts: 84,816 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    PWInsider.com has acquired the criminal report affidavit for the arrest of WWE star Adam Rose, real name Ray Leppan, filed by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office in Florida.
    According to the report, Leppan and his wife were involved in an argument about the state of their marriage when he grabbed her face with his hands and pulled her close to his face as he screamed at her. His wife dialed 911 from their home phone but Leppan took the phone from her to prevent her from reporting the incident. According to the arresting officers, Leppan admitted he took the phone from his wife.
    Leppan grabbing the phone from his wife resulted in the tampering with a witness charge, which is a felony in the state of Florida.
    The domestic battery charge is a misdemeanor, and Rose is still in jail with no bond.

    I thought he had beaten up his wife :o while there is no excuse for what he did I thought it would be far worse

    Why was he already suspended from WWE, was it drugs?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Wellness violation. He claimed it was an anti ADHD drug he has been on for a while and WWE knew about, but it flagged up this time on his tests.

    Oh my god what is Alan Tulip doing in the impact zone


  • Registered Users Posts: 543 ✭✭✭spektorfive


    Yeah is was for drugs. But instead of being silent like most are, Rose called them out on it and proved he a legit reason for the drugs. But this will be the nail in the coffin for him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,272 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    If he stopped taking his ADHD drugs because of the WWE and his job security he could us that for the reason he lost his temper.

    He could claim that his prescribed med's helped him with his temper but because he failed a drug test at work and couldn't afford to lose his job he stopped taking his prescribed meds.

    Drew's career there seemed to go rapidly down hill afterwards. I can just imagine how Vince felt about that whole affair.

    it took me to read this post to realise, he tampered with a witness.
    Not tampered with a waitress.

    I need sleep.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,543 ✭✭✭Mick Murdock


    US laws arent exactly favourable to these guys. Within a few hours the details of the case and mugshots are out there for the world to see.

    Hope he's fired for being an idiot.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 470 ✭✭Joe Musashi


    The guy is a total stiff but he has a sob story. No loss is Leo.

    That's Florida, where the WWE, through setting up all of the developmental stuff for years, has effectively made the default home location of their whole roster. It's extremely transparent about this stuff.

    When people go on about Florida being this crazy place because of all the nuts police reports that emerge, what they don't realise is that similar stuff could be happening all over the place, it just isn't publicly broadcast in a hell of a lot of detail the second it happens.

    I do not think anyone is shocked to hear the guy got released. Once he got arrested his job in wwe was gone.

    But of course, unless you are a bonafide main eventer like Steve Austin who beat up his wife Debra. That would be different. WWE would sweep that under the rug.... like they did!
