Mandy Rose discusses pitching ideas to Vince McMahon.
Mandy Rose has had the pleasure of being on all three WWE brands. Throughout that time, she has been featured in multiple storylines including a romantic storyline with Otis that culminated at last year's WrestleMania inside of an empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Mandy is now revealing that she pitched that storyline to Vince McMahon herself and shares his reaction to her taking such initiative.
In an exclusive interview with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, Mandy Rose details what her experience was like with Vince McMahon and why she believes the moment garnered a lot more respect for her in his eyes.
“When you have a creative idea or something, go right to Vince. I would be by his door, just like everyone else and hopefully get in there. Obviously, he's a very busy man and very hard to get to. Sometimes you wait all day, literally, and he'd just walk out and you don't want to bother him. There were a few interactions I had with Vince, for sure. There was one right at the beginning when I first got to Raw. The one with the Otis storyline, I actually went in there and pitched that whole thing. I think that's when, coming from the reaction I got from Vince, is when I think he was like, 'that's an amazing idea' and I took the initiative to go in there and come up with this idea and have a plan for how it ends and the whole storyline and how it leads up to it. He really gained a lot more respect for me in that sense because he loved the idea but he also thought it was cool that I took the initiative. That was a cool moment I had with him.”
Currently, Mandy is focused on being the leader of Toxic Attraction In NXT. Otis is paired with Chad Gable on the Monday Night Raw roster as a heel.
