Mandy Rose Invited To IMPACT Wrestling WWE

Former IMPACT Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo has invited Mandy Rose to join IMPACT Wrestling following Rose’s WWE release.

Rose was let go by WWE earlier this month less than 24 hours after dropping her NXT Women’s Championship to Roxanne Perez on the December 13 edition of NXT.

Following Rose’s controversial release, Tommy Dreamer stated that IMPACT would love to work with her.

In an interview with Metro, Deonna Purrazzo praised Rose’s recent stint in NXT. Inviting her to wrestle for IMPACT, Purrazzo said:

“Oh, I’m gonna open the door and welcome her in! I think that the Mandy Rose that came to NXT a year and a half, almost two years ago, to the Mandy Rose we see today has been a complete evolution of Mandy Rose.

“To see her in a different light and on a different platform, and see what else she can do without the WWE confines, is going to reinvent her again.

“Obviously we can’t speculate what she’s gonna do, or what her mindset is… But if she chooses to wrestle, I want to wrestle her.”

Rose’s agent told TMZ earlier this week that Rose had made $500,000 from her exclusive content in just a week since being released, and expected to be a millionaire by Christmas.

Mandy Rose was abruptly released by WWE December 14 as soon as the company found out about the type of content she was posting on her page.

WWE believed they had “absolutely no choice” but to release her and she “way, way, way crossed the line” of what was acceptable.

She dropped the NXT Women’s Championship to Roxanne Perez on December 13 – after reigning dominantly for 413 days – and was let go by the company the following morning.

As previously reported by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the title change was a rushed decision made by Shawn Michaels as soon as he found out earlier that day about the type of content Mandy Rose had been posting on her exclusive content page.

It’s worth reiterating a misconception – WWE didn’t fire Rose just because of the fact she had a subscription service, but reportedly more so because of the nature of what she was posting on there, which, per Meltzer, the company thought ‘way, way, way crossed the line’.

Fightful Select previously reported that Rose had indicated to people in recent months that she did realize what she was posting could get her in trouble with WWE management.

Rose’s reign with the NXT Women’s Title clocked in at 413 days, so it was just four days off being the second-longest NXT Women’s Title reign of all time behind Asuka’s.

Had the title change taken place on either January 10 or February 4 as originally planned, Rose’s reign would have overtaken Shayna Baszler to hit that second place milestone.

Rose herself has not yet publicly commented since she was released by WWE.
