Report: WWE Felt Mandy Rose ‘Way, Way, Way Crossed The Line’ With Subscription Content WWE

Further details are continuing to emerge regarding WWE’s firing of Mandy Rose due to her paid content service.

UPDATE – There has been more news on Mandy Rose’s WWE release since this was posted. Click here for the latest.

It’s worth reiterating a misconception – WWE didn’t fire Rose just because of the fact she had a subscription service, but more so because of the nature of what she was posting on there, which, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the company believes “way, way, way crossed the line”.

Of course you can still argue whether that’s right or wrong on WWE’s part, but it’s important to note that distinction.

Meltzer explained how NXT booker Shawn Michaels found out, and what his immediate reaction was, saying:

“They switched the whole show around because they – what happened was, there was a meeting and Matt Bloom brought to Shawn Michaels, told him what some of the stuff that she’s been putting on her subscription service is.

“And told Shawn what was there, and Shawn’s immediate thing was, ‘We’ve got to get the title off of her immediately’. Switched around the whole show, got the title off of her.”

Meltzer added that the plan was for Perez to win the title from Rose anyway, but it would have been on either January 10 or February 4, but instead, Michaels made the decision to hastily move it forward as soon as he found out what Rose had been posting.

The following day, news emerged that Mandy Rose had been released from her WWE contract.

Meltzer added:

“She’s had the subscription service, and it got popular and lucrative, and she went further and further, and the feeling was that she way, way, way crossed the line. And they believe that they had absolutely no choice but to get rid of her.”

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.
