WWE releases champion Mandy Rose because of content on her FanTime page

NXT women’s champion Mandy Rose (real name Amanda Saccomanno) has been released by WWE reportedly because of content the superstar placed on her subscription-based FanTime page.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful was first to report the news stating:

“Fightful Select has learned that Mandy Rose has been released by WWE.

“WWE officials felt they were put in a tough position based on the content she was posting on her FanTime page. They felt like it was outside of the parameters of her WWE deal.”

On December 13, Rose lost the NXT Women’s Championship to Roxanne Perez on NXT, ending her 413-day reign with the title.

The 32-year-old Rose tweeted a thank you message to fans on Tuesday night after losing the title to Perez.

Another speculated part of Rose’s release comes from a policy set by former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon who said talent on the roster needed to obtain the company’s permission for endeavors outside the company walls.

“Some of you are engaged with outside third parties using your name and likeness in ways that are detrimental to our company,” McMahon, who stepped down from running WWE earlier this year, wrote at the time.

“It is imperative that these activities be terminated within the next 30 days (by Friday October 2). Continued violations will result in fines, suspension, or termination at WWE’s discretion.”

Rose had been with WWE since 2015, when she first appeared as a contestant on the reality show Tough Enough. She was signed to a WWE contract after Tough Enough and competed on WWE’s developmental brand NXT until being called up to the main roster in 2017. Rose was part of tag teams with Sonya Deville and Dana Brooke in WWE.

In July 2021, Rose was sent back to NXT and became the leader of a group named Toxic Attraction. She won the NXT women’s championship from Raquel Gonzalez at last year’s Halloween Havoc.
