AEW star Brian Pillman Jr. recently admitted to the world that he has a crush on the reigning NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose. After finding a thread on Twitter which asked what everyone’s wrestling crush was, Pillman Jr. took the opportunity to admit his admiration for Rose. He seemed a bit shy about it, however, stating that he hoped Rose doesn’t see the tweet:
“@WWE_MandyRose Hope she doesn’t see this”

Mandy Rose has been on a dominant title run
Rose has been a top star of the female division on NXT 2.0 after her return in last year. She won the NXT Women’s Championship from Raquel Gonzalez at Halloween Havoc and has been leading the dominant Toxic Attraction stable. While the reigning NXT Women’s Champion has her fair share of male fans among the WWE Universe, she’s also attracted the attention of several fellow wrestlers over the years. AEW’s Brian Pillman Jr. has become the latest to take his shot. It is to be noted that Mandy has been in a relationship with former WWE star Tino Sabbatelli since 2018.
‘The Goddess’ recently successfully retained her NXT Championship against Wendy Choo at NXT: In Your House. Recently, Sonya Deville spoke about Mandy Rose. Rose and Deville are best friends, former tag team partners, and rivals in WWE, and the former authority figure told the “Under The Ring” podcast that Rose “looks like a star” right now. Deville thinks that Rose being tha champ is leading to her “getting more and more confident every week.”
“I love just seeing someone come into their prime and come into their own … She went down there and she took an opportunity and made the absolute most out of it. She’s a star, she looks like a star. She’s getting the reps down there and she’s just killing it,” Deville said.
