Mandy Rose has recently recalled finding an NXT star crying in the bathroom after a match.
Mandy Rose returned to the NXT brand in July 2021 and went on to form the Toxic Attraction stable with Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne.
The former Tough Enough contestant has had something of a career resurgence since returning to NXT and has earned plaudits for her improvements both in the ring and on the microphone.
Rose captured the NXT Women’s Championship at Halloween Havoc 2021 and has held the championship for over 300 days, becoming one of the brand’s top stars in the process.
As one of the most tenured female performers on the current NXT roster, Mandy Rose could be seen as one of the brand’s locker room leaders.
On a recent edition of Ryan Satin’s ‘Out of Character’ podcast, Rose recalled comforting fellow NXT star Cora Jade after finding her crying in a bathroom following a match at the WWE Performance Center:
“I remember like one of my first things, Cora actually, I didn’t even know where we were at but she was upset… We’ve all had those moments. She was like crying in the bathroom like after a match, it was like a PC live event thing we had. I went up to her cause I had a feeling why she was crying, she just, you know, maybe she got a bad feedback or whatever.”
“I just went up to her and said ‘Listen, that was a match, you know, performance center and it was in front of your coaches and this is where you learn. You know, just don’t stress over like something that they said cause she was stressing over something that just keeps being said and she was frustrated and we’ve all been there. Sonya and I have cried a bunch of times together about things.”
Mandy Rose recently shared news of her engagement to a former NXT Superstar.
