Many Rose was shockingly released by WWE on December 14th, just 24 hours after her NXT Women’s Title reign came to an end.
At the time it was reported that WWE had become increasingly uncomfortable with the type of content she was posting on her subscription service. It was noted that the photos and videos had become increasingly sexual in nature, and WWE felt she had crossed the line.
Mandy Rose Opens Up About WWE Exit
Interestingly, Rose has since claimed that WWE didn’t tell her that her content was a problem. She was only warned over the subscription service itself. Speaking in a new interview with the New York Post about her WWE exit, Rose reiterated that she wasn’t told about “racy images.”
“I wasn’t told about racy images,” Rose said, referring to the reasons she was given for being let go. “I wasn’t told about anything else. I was told about the subscription-based platform.”
The former NXT Women’s Champion also questioned what defines a “racy photo.” The star pointed to a well-publicised image of her posing nude wearing only her NXT Women’s Titles shortly after unifying the NXT and NXT UK belts at Worlds Collide in September. The photo which she posted on Twitter, recreated a famous shot of Shawn Michaels from his shoot with Playgirl Magazine in 1996.
“What’s the definition of racy? The photo of me with two titles – I was completely naked underneath, that’s considered a racy photo, right?”
Rose went on to suggest that there are numerous opportunities outside of WWE, and she should have been allowed to pursue these alongside her wrestling career.
“I am grateful and very humbled with everything I’ve done and made at the company [WWE], but in today’s day and age, there are so many other avenues and so many other marketing opportunities, it’s like why can’t I do both?”
She added: “At the end of the day I’m the only one watching out for myself and my career. Everyone’s replaceable in our business – it’s true.”
