Mandy Rose has a huge challenge ahead of her
It was previously noted that Rose would defend the NXT Women’s Championship against Cora Jade at WWE NXT Stand & Deliver. Jade and Rose have been involved in a fiery rivalry but on this week’s episode of NXT 2.0, the duo of Shirai and Ray won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic after they defeated Wendy Choo and Dakota Kai.
However, the winning pair declared that instead of going after the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship, Shirai and Ray wanted to be added to the NXT Women’s Championship match.
Rose also recently sent a message to Cora Jade, Io Shirai, and Kay Lee Ray ahead of her big title match against the three WWE stars at NXT Stand and Deliver 2022.
Shortly afterward, WWE NXT on Twitter confirmed the Fatal Four Way Match for the NXT Women’s Championship. In reaction to this, the reigning NXT Women’s Champion took to Twitter and wrote that everyone wants a piece of her.
“Everyone wants a piece of Mandy,” wrote the NXT Women’s Champion.
NXT Stand & Deliver will take place on Saturday, April 2 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The event will air live on Peacock and the WWE Network, with a special start time of noon ET due to WrestleMania 38 Night One kicking off just a few hours later. The NXT event is reportedly scheduled to run for 2.5 – 3 hours.
During a recent interview with Ring The Belle, current WWE 24/7 champion Dana Brooke would discuss the infamous WWE WrestleMania 37 entrance where while she and Mandy Rose were a part of a tag team turmoil match, Rose would slip while coming to the ring. Dana would state the following. Credit to PostWrestling for the below.
Oh my gosh. That entrance [at WrestleMania 37] was epic. It was the first time that we’ve had [a] live audience in almost two years with WrestleMania and I felt like we were going out there — again, I had no idea she [Mandy Rose] fell so I’m telling you from my vision and my perspective, right? So we make our entrance, we come to the top of the ramp, we strike a pose and we start strutting our stuff, and all of a sudden, I hear the audience roar and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is electrifying’ so I’m like oh, go, Dana, go Dana and I’m strutting extra hard. Like I’m feeling myself. Not even knowing that she had fallen right behind me, right? That’s why the audience erupted and was going crazy was because she had fallen behind me so I keep walking and walking and I hear this and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, they’re feeling us. They’re loving it.’
Dana would continue: “Post-match happens and we’re backstage and she goes, ‘I fell. Dana, I fell, I slipped.’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ She’s like, ‘I fell’ and then it all clicked. I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s why the audience was going crazy.’ I felt like — I thought they were loving us, every moment that we were coming on down but it was unforgettable, right? And we kind of carried it onto Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown where we kind of showed that, hey Mandy, you can’t slip and fall anymore so, we always try to make a negative into a positive.”
