Mandy Rose on life after wrestling.
Though Mandy Rose is closer to the beginning of her wrestling career than the end, that hasn't stopped her from thinking about life after the squared circle. She built her own fitness app, Fit with Mandy, is creating a new skincare line, Amarose, and has become a YouTube success alongside Sonya Deville with Damandyz Donutz, a vlog where the two WWE superstars travel from city to city and try different donut shops.
“I want to make sure I have plans for post-WWE, which is a long time from now but it’s still good to be prepared,” Mandy told Sports Illustrated. “Fitness is my first love. I’ve been developing this over the past year, and it’s a bunch of my favorite workout exercises. The design is set up for all different skill levels for all different ages. It’s an at-home program. I’m always on the road traveling, so it’s designed for people who can’t get to the gym but still want to work out. And the skin care line, Amarose, is launching soon. There will be four different products—a lifting eye gel, lifting serum, a beauty boost cleanser and a boosting moisturizer. I’ve always wanted to get involved in beauty and skincare, and I’m so grateful that I’m able to because of hard work and determination.”
Mandy is currently a featured player on WWE television, teaming with Deville to form Fire & Desire. While she has yet to win gold in the ring, she has remained a focal point on television in the last year, engaging in feuds with Naomi, Ember Moon, and now the Women's Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross.
“This past year, I was able to show off the seductive side of my character, but that was only the beginning,” said Mandy. “Down the road, another goal is to be the SmackDown women’s champion. And Sonya Deville and I will keep working until we win the tag team titles. We have really good chemistry, work so well together, and we’re going to keep building our characters until we get those titles. Those are big goals, but they’re attainable. I didn’t come from a wrestling background, but I’m just as passionate about this even though my path to get here was different than most. I am extremely grateful for my fan base, I appreciate it all so much, and there is much more to come. I hope people are ready for the ride.”
Mandy recently wrestled on the Sept. 24 episode of WWE SmackDown, teaming with Deville in a loss to The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka & Kairi Sane).
