Certainly a strange storyline involving former NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose, who lost the title to Roxanne Perez last night during the weekly episode of The Yellow Show and was then fired from WWE a few hours earlier. According to reports from Sean Ross Sapp, who first broke the news on Fightful Select, the company was forced to fire the wrestler after executives found themselves “in a tough spot” over some content Mandy Rose allegedly posted that would be outside the parameters set in the contract with WWE. .
In August of this year, Mandy Rose opened her own page on FanTime, a subscription-based platform that allows its users to earn income based on the paid content they publish (as indeed is the case for OnlyFans or Patreon platforms, which are the most popular in Italy – Editor ). A few weeks later, the former NXT Women’s Champion began posting content, which over time became increasingly provocative, risky, and more recently, explicit. So it seems that this is the reason for the separation from WWE, according to which the contents would be outside the parameters set by their contract.
The 32-year-old wrestler was in the midst of one of the most dominant titles in NXT history before shockingly losing the NXT Women’s Championship to Roxanne Perez on Tuesday’s episode of The Mystery Show. Mandy Rose’s reign, which ended after 413 days, is the third longest in the title’s history, behind Asuka’s reign of 522 days and Shayna Baszler’s second reign, which lasted 416 days.
This past Saturday, at NXT Deadline, Roxanne Perez defeated Cora Jade, Zoey Stark, Kiana James, and Indi Hartwell and emerged victorious from the first ever Iron Survivor Challenge, becoming the new #1 contender to the NXT Women’s Championship. Many assumed that the match between Perez and Rose would take place at NXT New Year’s Evil in January or NXT Vengeance Day in February. However, on Tuesday on NXT, Mandy Rose attacked Roxanne Perez from behind with the belt and the latter challenged The First to put the belt on the line that same evening.
Mandy Rose accepted the challenge and Roxanne Perez took down it with a Pop Rocks in the main event of the show, adding the NXT Women’s Championship to an already demanding curriculum at just 21 years old, which also includes the Ring of Honor World Women’s Championship. Fans were totally caught off guard by Mandy Rose’s sudden loss and wondered if it would result in a hiatus or a call up to the main roster. Instead, it was a prelude to the gladiator’s separation, which took place less than 24 hours later.
Mandy Rose has been signed to WWE since 2015, when she debuted as a contestant on Tough Enough that year. He had no prior wrestling experience, as up until that point he had only competed in physical fitness competitions. However, she managed to secure a contract with WWE and spent some time in NXT before being called up to the main roster as part of Absolution, a faction that included her, Paige and Sonya Deville. A neck injury sidelined Paige shortly thereafter, but Mandy continued to partner with Sonya for several years.
After their tag team ended, Rose and Deville began feuding with each other before Rose formed a new tag team with Dana Brooke, without much success. The tag team was then disbanded and Mandy Rose was brought back to NXT the following year. In her second stay in NXT, Mandy Rose seemed to have found her footing in Toxic Attraction, a new faction with Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne, in which she won the NXT Women’s Championship soon after.
Mandy Rose has shown signs of improvement in the ring, on the mic, and working on her character, which is why the sudden loss of the title prompted us to consider a new invitation to the main roster. Instead, his immediate future will be away from the company, at least for now. A return in the future cannot be ruled out, as has already happened to many wrestlers fired by the company in the past, even if in this case the situation looks a little different.
