Former NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose has been released by WWE with suggestions it had to do with content she was posting on a third-party website.
Mandy Rose has been released by WWE just one day after dropping the NXT Women’s Title to Roxanne Perez on the December 13th episode of NXT. Rose held the championship for an incredible 413 days before the surprising loss to the 21-year-old challenger.
Fightful Select has reported that WWE felt they needed to release Rose due to the “explicit nature” of content she was posting on her FanTime page. Reportedly, WWE management felt like the content was outside of the parameters of her WWE contract.
The decision to have Mandy Rose lose her title was described as “abrupt” as originally, it was believed WWE planned to do the Rose-Perez match at New Year’s Evil on January 10th. NXT is taping the next two weeks of their television show today (December 14th) and obviously, Rose will not be there.
Mandy Rose joined WWE in 2015 after placing as runner-up in that year’s season of Tough Enough. She became part of Absolution on the main roster alongside Sonya Deville and Paige in 2017 with her partnership with Deville lasting until 2020.
Rose rejoined NXT in the summer of 2021, forming Toxic Attraction with Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne before winning her only gold in WWE, the NXT Women’s Title at that year’s Halloween Havoc.
