Mandy Rose gives an update on her wrestling status.
Rose was released by WWE on December 14, one day after losing the NXT Women's Title to Roxxane Perez. She was reportedly released due to the content she was posting on her FanTime website. Rose made $1 million from FanTime following her release and has since switched to OnlyFans.
Speaking to TMZ, Rose was asked about life after WWE.
"Financially, I've been doing really well. Personally and mentally, I've been doing amazing. I have so much more time to spend with my family and get involved with more things that I never thought I would get involved in. It's been awesome. I always tell people, 'WWE is an amazing platform, I am forever grateful, but it's not the end all be all, and there are amazing opportunities afterward.' After seeing stuff today [WWE releases], I always tell everyone, 'there are so many opportunities out there.' I feel for people that did get released because that's not the phone call you want at the end of the day. I have a lot of connections and I always tell them, 'You can call me, I have all the hookups. If you want to go my route, it's been amazing.' I can't complain," she said.
On September 12, Rose teased that she may or may not be a free agent soon. When asked about a return to wrestling, Rose confirmed her free agent status.
"I do miss performing, I miss the camaraderie, I miss that adrenaline rush, for sure, I can't sit here and say I don't miss it. However, I am keeping myself super busy to not have to think about it as much. I don't know about the future. I am a free agent now. If the right call comes around and I feel like making an appearance and coming back to any wrestling federation out there, I'm not saying it's a 'no,' but right now I'm pretty busy. It has to be the right call," she said.
Along with her OnlyFans website, Rose has a skin care line and has helped with her family's deli.
