Big news broke on Wednesday that Mandy Rose was released from her WWE deal.
Fightful Select first reported the news. Sean Ross Sapp would further clarify on Twitter.
“WWE officials felt they were put in a tough position based on the content she was posting on her FanTime page. They felt like it was outside the parameters of her WWE deal.”
This came less than 24 hours after Rose dropped the WWE NXT Women’s Championship to Roxanne Perez on the December 13 edition of the show. Perez secured the number one contendership after winning the Iron Survivor Challenge at NXT Deadline. Rose held the championship for 413 days.
With six years of professional wrestling experience under her belt, Rose came up through the WWE developmental channels. She joined the promotion in 2015 via Tough Enough and was moved to the main roster in 2017. From there, she was involved in multiple angles with Sonya Deville and Otis, but none elevated her up the ladder. Her big break came when she was moved back to NXT in 2021.
It was there that she was paired with Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne to form Toxic Attraction. WWE blatantly marketed this stable as a “sex appeal” act, but it was during this run that Rose had some of the best performances of her career, picking up wins against Zoey Stark, Alba Fyre, Blair Davenport, Meiko Satomura, and others.
FanTime is a social media platform that has drawn comparisons to both Instagram and Only Fans. Users can subscribe to content creators to see various photos and videos the user uploads. During the Covid-19 global pandemic, WWE rolled out very strict guidelines around performers using third-party platforms as additional revenue streams. The guidelines resulted in the release of Zelina Vega who was eventually brought back to the organization.
