Karrion Kross debuted on WWE NXT this week and he defeated Leon Ruff in short order. Aja Smith officiated that contest and she was very happy to be there. It was a moment she never thought could happen.
WWE’s first-ever full-time African American female referee tweeted out how proud she is of her boyfriend Leon Ruff. Now it is very much a reality as the two were able to share that time in the ring together.
If you would have told me a year ago I’d be a referee, let alone referee my boyfriend’s match on TV, I woulda neverrrr believed it! Life is so cool. @LeonRuffsxe you’re always a winner to me.
Karrion Kross making brutal work of Leon Ruff might have dampened the celebration a bit. It was still a big moment for Aja Smith and Leon Ruff. At least he will always be a winner to her.
