All Charges Dropped Against Adam Rose



Party time as a free man may not be over for former WWE Superstar Adam Rose.

TMZ is reporting that prosecutors have dropped domestic violence charges against Rose (real name: Raymond Leppan) after he provided evidence he was undergoing counseling with the couple's pastor. Meanwhile, his wife Cassandra also filed documents in court dropping the case, arguing that their special needs child needed both parents at home.



Rose's lawyer, Maj Vasigh, released an official statement on the matter, saying:

The charges were dropped in this case because, as both he and his wife have maintained from the beginning, Mr. Leppan was absolutely innocent. Mr. Leppan did not, nor would he ever hurt his wife or anyone else. 
Suspicion of domestic violence is a very serious matter, as it should be. Responding officers sometimes, even if unsure of what happened, make an arrest just to be on the safe side. That is what happened here; and after a careful look at totality of circumstances, the justice system came to the correct conclusion. 
Mr. and Mrs. Leppan both continue to be madly in love. And while no relationship is ever perfect, they are relieved that this very public personal experience is over.

Both charges of battery and tampering with a witness have been dropped, and court records indicate that the case has been closed.


We have no idea how this will affect his relationship with the WWE, who, in response to the initial charges, had stated the following:

WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Raymond Leppan has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.

Of course, let's not forget that Rose had also been in the middle of a 60-day suspension for violation of the WWE's Wellness Policy—a suspension he had very publicly protested on social media.

What do you think is next for Adam Rose? Let us know in the comments, Henrinites.
