A report has just reached our news room revealing the marriage between former WWE performer Richard Young a.k.a Ricky Ortiz and Layla El.
The couple got married last week at Christ Temple in Glendale, Arizona where a remarkable number of people attended. Despite this fact, we termed the wedding secret as only little could be said about the day. In other words, the wedding wasn’t really publicized and the photo seen below was actually submitted on Instagram by a friend who attended the occasion.
Ricky Ortiz actually retired from professional wrestling after engaging El five months ago. El followed him naturally after enjoying nine years in the profession.
The newly wedded couple started dating a year ago and they worked together for a short period of time on the SmackDown brand in 2009. That brand was among other things noted for the in-ring skit which gave room for El to appear on Young’s short-lived WWE.com show.
Ricky Ortiz began with WWE and its developmental promotions from 2006 through August 2009, after his contract expired. It’s also worthy to note that Young was formerly working for XFL, the Canadian Football League, the Arena Football League and the National Football League.
