Adam Rose parted ways with WWE last year, and he recently announced that his wrestling career will be coming to an end sooner than later. During his run with WWE, Adam Rose was consistently accompanied to the ring by his Rosebuds, and he also spent a great deal of time hanging out with a person wearing a bunny costume.

The Bunny was a prominent figure on WWE programming for a while, but fans never really got a big pay off in regards to the identity of The Bunny. Adam Rose recently spoke to Chris Van Vilet of WSVN TV, and he talked about how at one point there was an idea on the table for Vince McMahon to be revealed as The Bunny.

“Road Dogg was in a meeting for two hours before Raw to figure out who the bunny was going to be and they couldn’t decide. I wanted [Justin] Gabriel to do it because he was my friend since I was 15 and he was 16. His dad trained me and we’ve know each other our whole lives. I said let him do it and they said well no one really knows him anymore and they won’t get the reaction they want. Then there was a suggestion that Vince McMahon do it and I was like ‘What’s the payoff? I don’t get it.’ They were like ‘We don’t know where to go, so why not have a crazy billionaire do it?’”

Adam Rose plans to retire at the end of the year, and he also talked a little bit about why he has decided to hang up the boots.

“I feel like it’s time to move on to other things. I don’t want to be one of those guys who’s hanging on and hanging on and hanging on and hanging on. It’s done. It’s had it life and it’s over with. It was fun while it lasted and it’s time to move on to other things. I’ve got a wife and two kids and I’ve got other business interests. I can’t justify being here if I’m half foot in, half foot out.”
