NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose has announced the tragic passing of her brother Richard Saccomanno at the age of 40.
Mandy Rose took to her Instagram stories to announce the sad news that her older brother had passed away on October 3rd:
“It’s still such a bad dream and I can’t believe that I’m even posting this right now. We are so deeply saddened that my amazing brother Richie is no longer with us. Richie will now forever be my guardian angel and we will always keep him so close to us at all times. My heart is so broken, I pray that this pain will go away but right now we have to remember all the good times. We will meet again one day my brother I love you so much. Rest in Peace.”
The Saccomanno family has asked for donations to be made to the National Alliance of Mental Illness in Richard’s memory.
Mandy Rose was originally scheduled for the 4th of October edition of NXT but did not appear – her absence was not explained on the show at the time. Rose’s Toxic Attraction teammates Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne lost in tag team action to Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark.
Everyone at TJRWrestling sends their condolences to Mandy Rose and the entire Saccomanno family at this difficult time.
