Former WWE star explains his weight gain and new look

Former WWE star Adam Rose, real name Raymond John Leppan, took to his official Instagram account to talk about improving his heath since getting sober following his WWE departure. 

As of late, Rose has been showing off his incredible transformation with his look to the point that he’s gone from 176 lbs to his current 258 lbs. He wrote the following: 

“My weight gain has caused some interest so let me explain.. Before coming to the #WWE, I weighed 236 lbs,” Rose wrote. “When I performed as #LeoKrugar, my weight was around 225 lbs.. When I made the transition to #Adamrose, I was asked to refrain from weight training so the character would not look like a #prowrestler at all, and also to get as far away from the Krugar character as possible. My weight as Adam was around 201 lbs.. unfortunately, as everyone now knows, while in the WWE, I developed a drug addiction which lead to me losing considerable weight and getting sick. At my worst I weighed in at 176 lbs in the WWE.. I was living on a smoothie a day and barely ate.. After a long stint in rehab, thanks to the WWE, I was able to clean up and get my life back together..

“Currently I weigh 258 lbs and feel good. I weight train religiously and eat food again.. probably too much food.. but I enjoy it so not gonna stop. I’m happy and on a much better track.. thank you.. #nxt #aew #powerlifting #weightlifting #bodybuilding #swoledaddy #jacked #happy #FatBoyHappy”
