Adam Rose

Raymond Leppan (born 20 July 1979) is a South African professional wrestler. He is signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Adam Rose. He is a former two-time FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion under the ring name Leo Kruger.

Leppan debuted as a professional wrestler at the age of 16 in South Africa where he wrestled from 1995 to 2010. That is when he was signed by the WWE. Leppan worked in the WWE developmental territories from 2010 to 2014. He wrestled as Leo Kruger and was making a name for himself on NXT. 

 Leppan was then removed from television, and began wrestling at house shows as a new character called Adam Rose. As Rose, he returned to television on the 6 March 2014 episode of NXT, with his new character being an organizer of parties with various colorful costumed party-goers, who accompany him during his ring entrance. Rose's supporters are called Rosebuds. The Rose character is based loosely off of comedian Russell Brand.

When 2K Sports were doing a Q&A with their fans, Adam Rose and The Bunny were confirmed to be downloadable content for the video game WWE 2K15, as a part of the NXT Arrival pack. This pack will be available in February 2015.

For the 2014–15 season, the Ottawa Senators of the NHL utilized Adam Rose's entry theme as part of the team's goal horn.
