REPORT: Mandy Rose moving to the NXT roster full-time

Originally published at REPORT: Mandy Rose moving to the NXT roster full-time

Mandy Rose appeared on Tuesday’s edition of NXT with a new report noting that Rose has joined the NXT roster full-time.

During the match between Sarray and Gigi Dolin, Rose walked out to watch the match before leaving after Sarray won. Later in the show, Rose briefly interacted with Franky Monet, Jessi Kamea, and Robert Stone backstage.

Mike Johnson of is reporting that Rose is now a full-time member of the NXT roster and leaving Raw. POST Wrestling can confirm that Rose is now considered part of the NXT roster.

Rose joined WWE in 2014 after competing on the Tough Enough series that aired on the USA Network and led to contracts for several of the participants including winners Josh Bredl and Sara Lee. The show also featured Sonya Deville (Daria Berenato) and Patrick Clark.

Rose wrestled for a brief time in NXT before her main roster call-up in November 2017 as part of a group with Paige and Deville.

Rose was involved in a long-term story in 2020 with Deville and Otis that was a featured story on SmackDown for months. The feud between Rose and Deville was set to climax at SummerSlam last August with a Hair vs. Hair match, which was switched to a Loser Leaves WWE match that Rose won.

Since the Deville feud ended, Rose has been teaming with Dana Brooke and appeared to be on the cusp of challenging WWE Women’s Tag Champions Natalya & Tamina, including an angle shot on this past Monday’s episode of Raw during a backstage segment.

This can’t be good for Dana.

My first thought as well. Maybe they throw her in a tag team with Naomi or something, otherwise it might be future endeavours…

Actually looked at this as Vince having plans for Dana and not Mandy and that’s why the the latter was allowed to go elsewhere. And they historically don’t like to push two tag wrestlers at the same time in singles. Of course, if it’s not about freshening the singles division with new entrants (by breaking up a tag team, which they’re never shy to do), then yeah, she’s pretty screwed.

To be fair, with all due respect to Dana the person, she probably isn’t worthy talent wise of being on the main roster anyways. She tries hard and she’s definitely improved a lot, but she’s not at the same level as a lot of the other woman on the roster.
