Following a four-year run on the main WWE roster, Mandy Rose returned to NXT in 2021 and revitalized her career as the leader of Toxic Attraction. The maniacal trio of women, also consisting of Gigi Dollin and Jacy Jayne, claimed the WWE NXT Women’s and Women’s Team Gold all on the same night, Halloween Havoc 2021, and went on to run roughshod on the female division until Rose was released on December 14, 2022. Her termination came one day after losing the WWE NXT Women’s Championship to Roxanne Perez, ending her 413-day reign as champion and jumpstarting the beginning of the end for Toxic Attraction.
“Financially, I’ve been doing really well, and, honestly, personally, and mentally, I’ve been doing amazing,” she prefaced. “I have so much more time to spend with my family and just kind of get involved in some more things that I never thought that I would get involved in, and it’s been awesome. So, I always tell people: WWE it’s an amazing platform; I’m forever grateful, but it’s not the end all be all, and there are amazing opportunities afterward.
“Even after seeing some stuff today, honestly, I just always tell everyone, there’s so many opportunities out there, and I feel for the people that did get released because that’s not the phone call you want to hear, at the end of the day, but also, I have a lot of connections, and I’m always here, and I always tell them, you can call me because I got all the hookups. You want to go my route; it’s been amazing, and I can’t complain.”
Rose is doing very well outside of WWE because she has been able to embrace the success she has found on third-party platforms like OnlyFans. Her desire to take advantage of those business opportunities, coupled with her inhibition about posting more risque content, is what led to her ultimately parting ways with the sports entertainment juggernaut.
“I do miss performing. I miss the camaraderie. I miss that adrenaline rush, for sure. I can’t sit here and say I don’t miss it. However, I am keeping myself super busy to not have to really think about it as much, but I don’t know about the future. I am a free agent now,” she clarified. “If the right call comes around, and I feel like making an appearance and kind of coming back to any kind of wrestling federation out there, then I’m not saying it’s a no, but right now I’m pretty busy. So it’s gotta be, it’s gotta be the right call.”
