It was the most talked about news of this week and the reason is simple: the firing of Mandy Rose, NXT Women's Champion for over a year, was a bolt from the blue. The latest rumors report that Mandy was fired due to a breach of contract due to her site and the sale of "red light" material on various sites.
In this regard, the former WWE Manager Jim Cornette wanted to speak and tried to understand why WWE immediately made this decision.
Jim Cornette on Mandy Rose
During his personal podcast, or Experience Podcast, Jim Cornette explained how WWE found itself with its back to the wall because of this news, also given the TV-PG product proposed by the federation itself: "In all honesty, and by the way, I'm completely pro-porn.
But if they were to be PG Era, they can't get commercials with Playboy anymore, right? Because they are a PG company, the sponsors don't want that. Because of this, WWE no longer had Playboy stuff. I haven't seen the material, so I don't know if it's mild to wild or something in between.
But if the executives at the company she works for say she's a big name in NXT, and she's the champion and all that stuff but holy f ***** a, if anyone sees and finds out, you're done. You know, we are absolutely not saints but if you have a contract and then when you don't appear on TV to do wrestling, you sell h*t videos and photos on the internet, it's not good.
Whether it's a private or personal arrangement or not, or whatever. If it's going to show up on the internet in any way, that's probably something you shouldn't have done while you were representing us, and we're trying to make deals with Disney, so I understand." Cornette then spoke of Mandy Rose's own earnings via the sale of this content: “The question becomes in which effort was she making a bigger profit? Was she making more money by traveling all over the place, getting in a ring with people who were going to land on her and get hit and punch her opponents? Or was she making more money in a less violent environment which shows, as Aunt Lola would say, what God has given her? So if she's close to something, maybe that's the direction she prefers." In 2015, Mandy Rose participated in WWE's reality show Tough Enough.
Sonya Deville was also a competitor on the show. "I think it's obviously just rumors. Everyone can get different vibes from the way we are portrayed on TV. I feel like for my character too, it's a little bit more h*t bombshell, a little more s*xual too, so I think some of the things I do can be portrayed as that. But as of now, we are just going to have to wait and see..." Rose said.
