Mandy Rose released by WWE after dropping NXT women’s title

One day after dropping the NXT Women’s Championship, Mandy Rose (Amanda Saccomanno) has been released by WWE.

Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp was the first to report the release with two sources confirming the news to POST Wrestling.

Fightful’s report states that WWE felt it was put in a position where it had to release her due to the “explicit nature of the content on her BrandArmy page” and was outside the parameters of her WWE deal.

Rose dropped the NXT Women’s title to Roxanne Perez on Tuesday in a match that was announced at the start of the show following Perez’s win in the Iron Survivor Challenge match at Deadline over the weekend. That match had originally been scheduled for January 10th on the New Year’s Evil special.

Rose was part of Tough Enough in 2015, which was won by Josh Bredl and the late Sara Lee with Rose signed by WWE after the series. After a stint in NXT, she was called to the main roster in 2017 and paired with Paige and Sonya Deville as Absolution.

She returned to NXT in July 2021 and won the NXT Women’s Championship from Raquel Gonzalez at Halloween Havoc that year and held it for 413 days, losing the title on this week’s episode.
