Leon Ruff Comments On His NXT North American Title Win & What It Means To Him


During a recent interview with Metro UK, WWE NXT North American Champion Leon Ruff commented on his big win, what it means to him, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On what his title win means: “I’m not saying I was supposed to win this championship, but if you’re training hard, doing your job and doing what you’re supposed to be doing, you’re gonna get an opportunity that you knock out of the park. That’s my main thing. I hope that this win makes people feel like, ‘Man, he was just getting beat up and thrown around.’ People can feel like that about their whole life. Then I get one win, and it’s the biggest win, the win that I needed. I want people to just try!”

On his family’s reaction: “We’re so excited, we’re happy, this is such a great thing. And with me and Aja, we get to sit and talk about what it means.”

On how long he’s known Aja Smith, the couple recently got engaged: “I’ve known her since I started. It wasn’t until I was doing a school show, it was a big school show event. Me and her were just talking and we went on a date after the show, and it kinda just snowballed from there.”
