WWE suspended Adam Rose and Konnor over the weekend because both men violated the company’s wellness policy for the second time. While most people in WWE are quiet when they get suspended for one reason or another, Rose (real name Ray Leppan) decided to speak out against the company’s decision.
In a note released on his Twitter account, Leppan said he wanted to clear the air over his suspension because of his two sons. He also mentioned that WWE fans had the right to know what happened, and that doing something like this is “tantamount to career suicide.” You can read the whole thing right here, but this is Leppan’s brief explanation for what went down and what he has on the horizon:
I will also quote my Dr in my response as he was as shocked and appalled by this suspension.
I can say right now I did not do anything knowingly wrong and was taking prescribed medication that my Dr and I followed all the correct protocol on.
My actual response and Doctors response will be coming soon. So before you judge, know the facts.
Leppan made it clear that he doesn’t hold any type of ill will against WWE, and believes that “the administrators over the WWE Welnness policy were just simply not right in taking this action.”
As we alluded to earlier, WWE employees usually go radio silent (for the most part) whenever some type of suspension is levied onto them, so it’s fascinating that Leppan is being so vocal in his opposition to this. We’ll let you know when The Radical Mongoose releases his full statement, but for now, enjoy this picture of his replacement in The Social Outcasts, Viktor:
