The title win gave Rose the taste of gold for the first time in her WWE career.
It was a momentous occasion for Rose and one shared by her former Fire & Desire partner and real-life best friend, Sonya Deville.
Deville took to Twitter to share a heartfelt message to the new NXT Women’s Champion.
“THATS MY BEST FRIEND! AND NEWWWWWWW @WWE_MandyRose I’m so proud of you! All the hurdles all the obstacles and you prevailed my friend”
Rose and Deville both signed for WWE in 2015 after turning heads in Tough Enough.
During their time on the NXT, the duo would frequently team before getting called up as part of Absolution led by Paige in 2018.
Rose and Deville would go on to form Fire & Desire as part of the women’s tag team division.
The split last year as part of the Rose and Otis angle, in which Deville turned heel on her partner. The feud led to some incredible mic work from Deville before they clashed in a Loser Leaves WWE match at 2020’s SummerSlam.
Rose returned to NXT earlier this year and began scouting Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. The trio became known as Toxic Attraction and now hold all the women’s gold in NXT.
