They previously announced their engagement in November 2020. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
LaShaunn is a main roster referee. Following his accomplishments in EVOLVE, Leon signed a contract with WWE in 2019. The highlight of his career was undoubtedly when he defeated Johnny Gargano to win the NXT North American Championship and then held onto it for 25 days. Before Ruff’s release in August 2021, he competed in a triple threat match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames in 2020, where he was defeated by Gargano and lost the title to him once again.
As of right now, Ruffin is active in the independent scene, and he has been featured on AEW programming going all the way back to May.
