Last month, WWE released Mandy Rose despite the fact she was one of NXT's biggest Superstars. We heard that her FanTime account was the reason, with the NXT Women's Champion sharing increasingly risque content ultimately deemed too inappropriate for her to remain with the PG company.
Despite Rose's 413-day title reign ending abruptly on December 13, the wrestler and fitness model hasn't exactly struggled in the weeks since. After all, we recently learned that interest in the aforementioned FanTime page went through the roof after her release, resulting in Rose reportedly earning upwards of $1 million in less than a month.
Now, she's made an appearance on the Tamron Hall Show to share her side of the story.
Revealing that WWE officials never said her FanTime account was the reason for her firing, Rose claimed a confidentiality clause means there are certain elements about her departure she's unable to discuss. Admitting she received one warning to take down some of that X-rated content, Rose then claims to have complied with those wishes.
Describing being fired as a "gut punch," the former champion said she's grateful for her time in WWE and, while she doesn't necessarily feel wronged, "I'm very hurt, 100%. No one wants to get that call that they are being fired from any job."
Despite that, a tearful Rose says "never say never" when it comes to a possible WWE return, but pointed out that if it requires her to take down that profitable FanTime page, it could be an issue.
