Raymond Leppan (born 20 July 1979) is an South African former professional wrestler. He is best known for working for the WWE where he competed under the ring names Adam Rose and Leo Kruger.

On the January 30 tapings of NXT, Leppan debuted under the Adam Rose name and had the gimmick of an eccentric rock star.[1]

On 11 May 2016, Leppan was arrested for tampering with a witness (domestic) and battery domestic assault.[2] He would be suspended by WWE and then granted his release when he asked for it.[3][4] On 14 June 2016, Leppan would release a shirt with his mugshot on it and say the idea came from his wife.[5]

On 18 March 2019, Leppan announced that he was retiring from professional wrestling in-ring competition.[6]
