Mandy Rose hasn’t wrestled since December 13th, 2022, but the star has admitted that this might not be the end of her career.
Just 24 hours after being defeated by Roxanne Perez for the NXT Women’s Title, Rose was released by WWE to the shock of many fans.
It was later revealed that Rose was let go after WWE became uncomfortable with the content she was posting on her FanTime subscription service. In the wake of her departure, it was noted that WWE felt they had “no choice” but to release the star, as they felt her content had gone “way, way over the line.’
Since leaving WWE, Rose has kept herself with a number of non-wrestling projects, but that doesn’t mean that she won’t lace up her boots again in the future. Speaking on The Ethan, Lou & Large Dave Show on I95 Rock, Rose admitted that she’s not sure what happens next.
“I’m on a little bit of a different path now, I’m in a little transitional phase. I’m no longer with the WWE right now. Not to say that I won’t wrestle in the future, I’m not really sure, but I’m taking a break right now and I’m focusing on my skincare line, my other brands, DaMandyz Donutz, helping out at my dad’s deli, I have some plans in the works that I want to help out with them and do some things.
My dad is pretty old school, so I want to revamp a little bit. I have some ideas. I’m really busy on my exclusive fan site, FanTime, I get to really engage with my fans. It’s been awesome. I can’t complain, it’s been great,”
Rose said that while she loves wrestling she also wants to start a family in the future, and enjoys working a much less hectic schedule.
“It’s hard to say right now because I am enjoying my time being home and being able to come up to New York and be with my family and hang out at my dad’s deli and just have the time because our schedules are crazy (in wrestling). I’m not going to say it’s in my past and I’ll never go back to it, but I will say right now, I’m really enjoying the time and doing a lot of other things.
Eventually, I want to start a family one day and it’s a little hard in the wrestling world. You can still do it. I don’t know what the future brings. I don’t want to say I’ll never go back because it’s an amazing sport, I love it, and the last year and a half I really brought my character and put a lot of equity in my name, which I’m very grateful for.”

Although Mandy Rose’s WWE exit might have come as a surprise, it may have been a blessing in disguise, at least financially. In January it was revealed that Rose had made $1 million just from FanTime in December.
