Mandy Rose Reveals The Influence Paige Had On Her WWE Career, More


During this week’s episode of WWE’s “The Bump”, new WWE NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose commented on the influence Paige had on her career, and more. You can check out some highlights from the show below:

On the influence Paige had on her career; Toxic Attraction compared to Absolution: “Some people out there have made that comparison. Paige was always an amazing leader for Sonya [Deville] and I, especially so early in our careers. She always guided us. She always gave us little tips that, maybe, you don’t think that they’re going to help you in your career, whether it’s not relating to wrestling, too. That’s what I feel like I’m doing now. I have to say, you learn from the best. Paige is one of the best. I’m not doing that just for Toxic Attraction, but with the other women as well. I think when you’re developing in NXT, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming, and it can be stressful because you have a lot of cooks in the kitchen. You’re trying to develop your character and who you are. That’s what I’ve noticed since I’ve been down there is, like, trying to help the girls be in the moment and enjoy the moment, and also, be who you want to be. There’s a lot of people out there that think they know who you are, but you know who you are the most. I’m very motivated by helping them, but it’s also really rewarding for me because I see the girls, and I was there at that moment, and sometimes it’s hard. Having someone like me there who’s been in the business for 5-6 years, which isn’t a long time, but having some of that experience goes a long way, I think.”

On moving away from her Golden Goddess look: “In the moment, it didn’t feel like a blessing in disguise, but it was because I’m tired of it always being about my looks. ‘She’s just a pretty face.’ I’ve heard it since day one. It was about time that I wanted to bring that ruthless aggression. I think last night was a true example of that.”

On winning her first WWE title: “It was really awesome. I’m still getting all of that support. It’s really nice to hear from colleagues, especially like Becky Lynch, for instance. There were so many other women: Nattie, Liv Morgan, Carmella, all the girls. I miss them tremendously. Even people from back home. My dad is my biggest fan. Thank God I won last night because if I were going to lose again, he was probably gonna have another heart attack ’cause every time I’m on TV, he’s like, ‘Call me right afterward.’ He’ll be like, ‘When are you going to start winning?’ I’m like, ‘Dad, relax.’ Anyway, it’s so amazing to get all of that support. I’m really happy, and I’m very grateful.”
