AEW star Saraya is the latest wrestling star to respond publicly to the shocking release of Mandy Rose from her WWE contract.
On the 13th of December edition of NXT television, Mandy Rose found herself in action as she put her NXT Women’s Title on the line against Iron Survivor Challenge winner Roxanne Perez. In something of a shock result, Perez was able to defeat Rose ending her 413-day reign as NXT Women’s Champion. In reality, the decision came at the last minute by NXT decision-makers as a result of discovering content Rose was posting on her subscription-only website.
The following day, Mandy Rose was released from her WWE contract with reports suggesting that WWE felt they had “absolutely no choice” but to take action due to the “explicit nature” of Rose’s content believed to fall outside the parameters set out in her WWE deal.
Now Mandy Rose’s former Absolution partner Saraya – formerly known as Paige in WWE – has taken to social media to give her reaction to Rose’s release:
“Love you sister @WWE_MandyRose”
Love you sister @WWE_MandyRose

Mandy Rose was part of Saraya’s final match in WWE back in December 2017. The six-woman tag team match that saw Saraya and Rose joined by Sonya Deville ended in disaster for the English star as she suffered a serious neck injury that was believed at the time to have ended her in-ring career.
That was Saraya’s last match in WWE but she returned to the ring for AEW for the first time in almost five years when she defeated Dr. Britt Baker DMD at Full Gear.
