Booker T on Mandy Rose release

Mandy Rose's release is one of the main topics on the wrestling scene. Many are surprised by this development of the situation, and WWE hall of famer Booker T commented on the whole situation. “It’s a bad situation, the company being put in a situation where they had to do something about it, Mandy Rose putting herself in a situation.

‘Put yourself in a situation,’ I say that all the time. That’s real. You put yourself in a situation and something happens. That’s exactly what happened here. I’ve been around Mandy Rose since the beginning, since Tough Enough.

I watched her work so hard to win, she didn’t win, but she impressed me to the point where I was like, ‘Give her a contract, put her in the game.’ Things didn’t work out on the main roster, she went back to NXT and has been banging for the past 413 days as champion and created one of the most awesome runs for a female that we’ve seen in decades.

She put herself in a great position to be looked at as a major superstar like Trish Stratus. People are going to remember Trish forever from WWE and what she’s done in the ring. Trust me, Trish Stratus, now, is able to do all of that, OnlyFans or whatever else, and is going to be able to make more money from being a WWE Superstar for so many years.

What I’m saying is, I hate it because that money was going to always be there for Mandy Rose. It was like money in the bank. She didn’t even need it right now. It was money in the bank for Mandy Rose. I could be wrong, maybe she does need it right now.

I don’t know. What I’m saying is, the bigger her star would have risen in the WWE, the more money she would have been able to demand going forward in life. Out of sight, out of mind. Being on TV is so important to being relevant.

These days, they say, ‘We don’t need TV, we can do our own thing,’ of course you can, but your star is not going to shine as bright”. - he said, as quoted by

Booker T believes Mandy Rose has a chance to make a comeback.

“I’ve been around a long time. I’m going to throw an analogy out there that is the stupidest analogy in the world right now. I used to love Gilligan’s Island just so I could watch Ginger Grant. She was the hottest, biscottiest you’ve ever seen back in the day and as sexual as you wanted to see a woman.

If she was doing porn or exposing herself, do you think they would have had her on Gilligan’s Island playing that role? It’s a corporate thing. It has nothing to do with anything other than that. It’s a corporate thing.

Hopefully, Mandy Rose can find her way back to WWE. Something like this can blow over, it’s up to Mandy in order to make something like this right, more than anything. She’s very sexual, but working for WWE, they go together in aspects, but in certain aspects, certain things you’re not going to get away with”.
