— Mandy Rose was shockingly released from her WWE contract yesterday after a lengthy reign as NXT women’s champion. The source of the termination was due to the content she was posting to her FanTime page which company officials believed violated the terms of her WWE contract. According to the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE became aware of this content when NXT trainer Matt Bloom met with WWE VP Shawn Michaels and informed him of what Rose was posting.
— When Michaels found out, his immediate thought and action was to get the NXT title off of Rose as soon as possible which is why the match on Tuesday happened with the result seemingly coming out of the blue. Right after Rose dropped the title, WWE moved swiftly to fire her. The FanTime page was a subscription based service where Rose was charging $40/month for photos that seemingly got more and more racy as time went on, gaining in popularity and becoming a lucrative business for her. Some of the videos and photos were reportedly leaked within the last few days and WWE felt that she simply went too far and crossed the line, especially when the company is pushing a cleaner product and cleaner performers to their sponsors.
— Rose posted a brief statement to her FanTime page, thanking her fans for their support after news of the release went public:
“Hey guys, thank you for all the messages. I am overwhelmed with all the love and support from you guys. And don’t worry the page is still up! ;)”
