Mandy Rose traded to RAW
Mandy Rose has been traded to WWE Raw as part of her partner Otis' ongoing storyline with The Miz and John Morrison, the promotion has confirmed.
Miz broke the news during this past weekend's episode of Talking Smack. Citing his sway with network executives at USA and FOX, 'The A-Lister' called in a favour, saying that Otis' Money in the Bank contract was extremely important and that Rose was an unnecessary distraction for somebody looking to become Universal Champion.
Rose has issued the following in-character response:-
Absent from SmackDown since beating rival Sonya Deville in a Loser Leaves WWE match at SummerSlam 2020, it looks like Mandy shall now be plying her trade on Monday nights. There's no word on whether or not this is a permanent switch.
Miz has already doubled down on the move:-
This makes sense from a storyline standpoint, given Miz and Morrison's recent attempts to part Otis and his MITB contract, and it's plausible that the heel duo could use reinstating Rose on SmackDown to blackmail the Heavy Machinery man. From a behind-the-scenes perspective, it reeks of a hot-shotted cover-up explanation for the promotion's inability to capitalise on Rose's SummerSlam win.
