The WWE Universe was shocked yesterday when the news on Mandy Rose‘s WWE release broke as first reported by Fightful. Rose’s 413 day reign as NXT Women’s Champion ended on Tuesday, Dec. 13 and by the next day, the report of her release was out. The release was said to be over the content on her FanTime page.
Additional details have just been released on Fightful Select.
According to Fightful Select, they have been told that things seemed “very hasty” as it related to Mandy Rose losing the NXT Women’s Title on Tuesday. Fightful got word about it 15 minutes before NXT went on the air, that word was that a major title switch was going to happen with Mandy dropping the title to Roxanne Perez.
Those close to Rose claim she was in good spirits at the NXT show on Tuesday as well as immediately following the release.
Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin, who Mandy had been in the Toxic Attraction stable with for over a year, had several looks on the WWE main roster and we’re told had long impressed people of influence. However, Fightful had not learned of any advanced plans to bring Mandy back to the main roster.
Rose was one of many WWE talent that were signed to new five-year deals in 2019 which means she had nearly two more years left on her contract at the time of release. There were some WWE sources that were at least trying to leak that Mandy had requested her release two weeks ago, but so far, Fightful has not been given any indication that’s true.
Rose did make a statement on her FanTime site following her release. She stated on Dec. 15 –
“Hey guys, thank you for all the messages. I am overwhelmed with all the love and support from you guys. And don’t worry the page is still up!”
WWE has not officially announced her release from the company.
