One of the most popular stars of the WWE has been released.
In a bit of a shock move, NXT Champion Mandy Rose has been cut from the WWE roster.
According to reports, Rose was let go because of racy content on her subscription service.
Rose had just celebrated being one of the longest title holders on the women’s circuit when her title was taken away from her in a regularly televised event.

Normally, a title transfer would happen during a PPV event, but it just looked like the WWE wanted to get away from her as quickly as possible.
The WWE does not like when its entertainers make money outside its channels, having previously stated, “Much like Disney and Warner Bros., WWE creates, promotes and invests in its intellectual property, i.e. the stage names of performers like The Fiend Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Big E and Braun Strowman.
“It is the control and exploitation of these characters that allows WWE to drive revenue, which in turn enables the company to compensate performers at the highest levels in the sports entertainment industry.
“Notwithstanding the contractual language, it is imperative for the success of our company to protect our greatest assets and establish partnerships with third parties on a companywide basis, rather than at the individual level, which as a result will provide more value for all involved.”
Rose had created a subscription service on an OnlyFans-like platform called FanTime.
Be it the racy content or the fact that the WWE was not getting it’s kickback, Rose is no longer part of the company.
She has not posted to her Instagram accounts since the separation, but her Twitter account is loaded with tributes from fans and other entertainers showing the disbelief that she was removed as the title holder and let go.
