Mandy Rose had a solid run in NXT, where she held the NXT Women’s Championship for 413 days, cementing herself as one of the greatest champions on the brand. That did not matter anymore as she was released last week. Following that, it was revealed that Mandy Rose made $500K from her premium content service, just a week after her release. Now it seems Booker T commented on her earnings and decided to give her a warning about the path she has chosen.
Mandy Rose was released from her WWE contract due to content she posted behind her premium content paywall. It was reported that Mandy Rose was not even given a chance to take down her premium content before her WWE release.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T addressed Mandy Rose’s agent’s recent comments that she made $500K from her premium content service. He then warned Mandy Rose about earning ‘fast money.’
“You really must have the dumbest agent in the world for him to be reporting how much money you make. That is nonsensical to me. Why don’t he put how much Uncle Sam talking out of it as well, you know what I mean. As well as what’s his cut, you know what I mean. There’s a lot involved there as far as that pop. It’s like a boxer getting paid $500,000 for his fight. You think he’s getting all of it?
Let me tell you right now, they’re talking about she’s gonna be a millionaire by Christmas, she’s gonna have to do a whole lot of naked photos, okay. I’m just being right straight up, okay. And I’m gonna tell you right now, my sister told me a long time ago man and this is the God’s honest truth, fast money go fast. I’m serious. Fast money go fast.”
Even Kevin Nash has an issue with the way WWE released Mandy Rose. WWE also isn’t closing the door on Mandy Rose’s return to the company in the future. Mandy Rose will certainly have no dearth of options once she decides to return to pro wrestling, so we’ll have to see which company she ends up competing in next.
