Current WWE Referee Aja Smith recently revealed on her Instagram that she has set a date for her wedding to former NXT Superstar Leon Ruff.
Both Smith and Ruff were part of the NXT setup together, and the female official even got to referee her own partner’s match.
Ruff was released from the company in August 2021 as part of budget cuts, but Smith and Ruff have continued their relationship and are now set to wed in just a month.
Aja Smith noted that she has been engaged to the former NXT North American Champion for over a year and is now counting the days until she says “yes”.
She also noted that there are only 30 days left until she becomes Leon Ruff’s bride.
Leon Ruff is a former WWE NXT North American Champion
Leon Ruff was able to lift the NXT North American Championship by defeating Johnny Gargano on November 11, 2020 at NXT Edition after being chosen as Gargano’s surprise opponent.
Ruff was one of the brand’s biggest underdogs throughout his time in NXT and it came as a huge surprise upon his exit.
The 26-year-old has since made several appearances for AEW, wrestling former WWE Superstar Tony Nese in his first match on AEW Dark in May. Ruff then teamed with Bear Country in a losing effort against The Gunn Club and Max Caster on the June 17 episode of AEW Rampage.
The former star then appeared on another episode of AEW Dynamite last month where he was on the losing side of an eight-man tag team match against Gunn Club, Caster and Anthony Bowens.
After their wedding next month, the duo will be added to the list of married couples split between the rival promotions.
Vince Russo has named the one thing that will make everyone stop watching WWE here.
