MANDY ROSE is refusing to rule out a stunning return to the ring – less than two months after being axed by the WWE.
Wrestling’s premier promotion gave the 32-year-old the boot late last year after she violated their policy on using third-party monetization websites.
Rose – real name Amanda Saccomanno – was sacked for selling racy snaps on her FanTime page, which has raked her in thousands of pounds.
Although she’s enjoying making content, Rose very much misses the thrill of being in the ring.
During an appearance on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, she said of a potential return: “I haven’t ruled it out, for sure.
“It’s not like the boots are hung up and stuff.
“It’s not like that, but right now, it’s not my main focus, but definitely for the future, maybe, we’ll see.”
Rose joked with her colleagues that she’d be axed not long after the WWE learned of her side business.
She said: “The next day, which I was anticipating with how everything went down, I was making jokes about it, actually the night before, because you know how we are.
“‘It’s the only way [to get through it]. I was making jokes about it, and all the girls were like, ‘Oh my god, stop, like no you’re crazy’ and I’m like ‘It’s not crazy.’
The former NXT Women’s Champion didn’t know of her release until after she lost her December dust-up with Roxanne Perez.
She said: “I had the inclination that something was up because everyone has treated me so great at NXT.
“I had a great relationship with Shawn Michaels, the writers, the producers, and everyone.
“So I was never kept out of the loop either, you know, being a champion for 413 days.
“I was in the loop with everything and I didn’t really have many surprises like that.
“So it was very like, ‘did I do something? What’s going on?’
“Obviously, I had some inclination because of what was happening on social media and what was going on the night before.
“It came from Shawn Michaels himself, so obviously, I knew it was coming from the head of creative in that sense.
“I knew that I didn’t really have to go and try to seek other answers even though I wanted other answers.
“But at that moment, I had to do my job and get planning our match and everything else that we had to do that night.”
