WWE Hall of Famer and NXT commentator Booker T wants Mandy Rose to return to WWE following her controversial departure.
In a recent Q&A session, the former NXT Women’s Champion noted that she doesn’t know what the future holds when asked if she’ll ever return to WWE.
Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T pointed out that fans seemed to only start siding with Rose after she was let go by the company.
Noting that he’d love to see her make a comeback, Booker T said:
“What’s crazy is when Mandy Rose was the champ, so many people hated on Mandy Rose and then as soon as she left, so many people loved Many Rose and can’t wait for her to get back.
“Personally, I’ve always was one of the latter. I always loved Mandy Rose.
“From Tough Enough to watching how hard she worked to get a shot at being a part of the WWE roster.
“She didn’t even win the contest, but man, she went all out as far as trying to pull that thing off and I gave our whole lot of credit.
“Then to make it to the main roster. That didn’t work out for her, but then to go back and recreate herself in NXT, man, she did a hell of a job.
“I tell you Toxic Attraction was the talk of the town, the talk of NXT for so long, and then what happened, happened.
“The question is, would you like to see Mandy Rose back into WWE? Personally, I would. I would love to see Mandy back.”
Rose was let go by WWE in December 2022, after the company found out about the type of content she was posting on her FanTime subscription page.
