Mandy Rose is now speaking out for the first time since she was released from the WWE.
The former WWE appeared on the Tamron Hall Show to talk about her release from WWE. Rose was released after the company deemed her adult content on FanTime as inappropriate. A lot of her content has leaked out for all ages to see.
Rose said that she was not told why she was losing the NXT Women’s Title and was never told that her FanTime content was the sole reason for her release.
“I can’t sit here and say that I was wronged or not… but I’m very hurt,” Rose said Tuesday on the Tamron Hall Show (h/t Sean Rueter of Cageside Seats). “Nobody wants to get that call that they’re being fired from any job, right? So I was very hurt. I was very disappointed.”
WWE shockingly fired Rose on December 14th. It was reported at the time that Shawn Michaels made the decision to fire Rose after being informed her content had gotten “more racy.”
WWE reportedly found unacceptable to its family-friendly audience.
A day before her release, WWE had Rose drop the NXT women’s championship. Rose had held the championship for more than 400 days and is the third-longest reigning women’s champion in the developmental brand’s history.
“Losing the title was, honestly, a gut punch. It definitely—I was so disappointed. But at the end of the day, my purpose was what was gone. And that’s where I kind of felt lost. And I felt confused, because of all the hard work that I put into, and driving home from that, just a lot of things were going through my mind. You know, you always think there’s a lot of unanswered questions and all that, but at the end of the day, like I said, I love what I’ve done in the WWE, and I love what the platform presented me with. So I am forever grateful for them.”
Rose did not close the door on a potential return, but did add she made more than $1 million in a stretch of less than three weeks after her firing.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
