During the October 5th episode of NXT 2.0, Rick Boogs took to social media to compare being squeezed by the thighs of Mandy Rose to a death grip by a sloth, to which Rose later posted her own tongue-in-cheek response.
On the episode, Rose continued her march towards NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez with victory over Ember Moon. During the match, Rose wrapped up Moon in a leg scissors which led Boogs to wonder what it might feel like.
Posting on social media, the SmackDown Superstar imagined the situation.
“Mandy Rose squeezing you between her thighs must feel like a sloth decimating your core with its death clutch grip…I’ve seen her squat in the gym…she’s got some POWAAA #WWENXT”
Rose later spotted the tweet, before offering her own reaction.

Later in the show, Rose and the rest of Toxic Attraction continued to make their presence known. The trio interrupted a segment with Raquel Gonzalez, before the champion’s own back-up arrived in the form of Io Shirai and Zoey Stark.
The show also saw Bron Breakker accept the challenge from NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa for a match at Holloween Havoc.
Meanwhile, Parker Boudreaux, now known as Harland, finally made his WWE television debut. On the episode, Joe Gacy defeated Ikemen Jiro in singles action, but the biggest story arguably came after the bell. With the match over, Gacy helped Jiro to his feet embracing his rival before heading back up the ramp.
As Gacy stopped in the entrance way he stopped to look up to the stands to see Harland staring back at him. Now complete with a shaved head, many fans took a second to recognise the man glaring at Gacy.
