There was a big surprise on this week's episode of WWE NXT, as Mandy Rose made a shocking appearance to observe a match between Sarray and Gigi Dolin. However, there seems to be more to Rose's appearance than fans initially thought.
Rose didn't physically get involved on the show, but her mere presence at ringside generated a lot of buzz among WWE fans. Everyone wanted to know why she was on the show, due to her status as a WWE RAW Superstar.
PWInsider then reported that Mandy Rose had been permanently moved to NXT, making her the latest main roster Superstar to move from RAW or SmackDown and rejoin the black-and-gold brand. Finn Balor and Breezango had previously made the same move.
Wrestling insider Twitter account WrestleVotes later provided an update by reporting that Mandy Rose isn't simply moving to NXT from RAW. Instead, she has seemingly been traded for NXT Superstar Aliyah.
"While I’m not sure why, source says it seems like a trade went down between rosters: RAW trades Mandy Rose to NXT for Aliyah," wrote WrestleVotes.
Aliyah turned her back on the Robert Stone Brand on Tuesday, seemingly setting up her departure from NXT.
What will happen to Mandy Rose's main roster storyline?
Mandy Rose has been in a tag team with Dana Brooke on WWE RAW. The pair was involved in an ongoing storyline with WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina. But due to Rose's move to NXT, that storyline now looks like it has been dropped.
It also seems that yet another promising women's tag team in Brooke and Rose has been broken up. In that case, the thin division has lost one of its few contenders.
