WWE's Adam Rose -- Off the Hook In Domestic Violence Case

WWE's Adam Rose Off the Hook In Domestic Violence Case

EXCLUSIVE

1:29 PM PT - Rose's lawyer, Maj Vasigh, tells us, "The charges were dropped in this case because, as both he and his wife have maintained from the beginning, Mr. Leppan was absolutely innocent. Mr. Leppan did not, nor would he ever hurt his wife or anyone else."

"Suspicion of domestic violence is a very serious matter, as it should be. Responding officers sometimes, even if unsure of what happened, make an arrest just to be on the safe side. That is what happened here; and after a careful look at totality of circumstances, the justice system came to the correct conclusion." 

"Mr. and Mrs. Leppan both continue to be madly in love. And while no relationship is ever perfect, they are relieved that this very public personal experience is over." Prosecutors have dropped the domestic violence case against WWE superstar Adam Rose ... after he proved he's getting professional help for his marital issues ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Rose was arrested at his home in Florida last month after he allegedly grabbed his wife by the face during an argument ... and then ripped the phone away from her when she called 911.  

He was booked for domestic violence and felony tampering with a witness. His contract with the WWE was suspended indefinitely due to the company's zero tolerance domestic violence policy. He later requested (and was granted) a release from the organization. 

But in court, his wife begged the judge to go easy on Rose -- claiming he didn't hurt her in any way and the situation was blown out of proportion. She also claimed Rose had been getting counseling from his pastor and she believed he was responding positively to it. 

Prosecutors said the victim stopped cooperating -- and filed documents to drop the case against Rose. Court records now show the case is officially closed.  

No word on how this will affect his relationship with the WWE. Stay tuned ...
