There was a time when you could name every woman wrestler in the WWE pretty easily, but those days have just about gone since the women’s roster is starting to get bigger and bigger as more and more talent is brought in from NXT. Mandy Rose, real name Amanda Rose Saccomann, is one of the newer divas that has come to play in the ring and is also one of the heaviest hitters around despite the fact that she’s been seen as one of the heels and is also someone that tends to lose a lot at this point. Thankfully that doesn’t mean much in the WWE since depending on how a person performs and what kind of reaction they get from the crowd it’s always possible that they might start seeing a bit more success and attention thrown their way. At this point she’s one of the more popular divas, but in the future if she continues with the company it could be that she might start getting more and more opportunities.
Here are a few things about Mandy you might not have known.
10. Her social media following is impressive.
A lot of wrestlers in the WWE have huge followings on their social media accounts since they’re pushed into the public eye quite a bit and it’s where they need to be if they want to continue to increase in their popularity. It doesn’t matter if a person’s character is seen as a heel or a face, it’s all about getting the fans to like them one way or another. Mandy’s following is quite large.
9. She signed to the WWE in 2015.
Compared to a few of the women on the roster she hasn’t been there quite as long, but seeing as how various female performers in the WWE have been retiring in the last several years Mandy and several of her co-workers are rising quickly to take their places.
8. Apparently her childhood nickname was Hamburgers.
Let’s look at it this way, if everyone had to explain their childhood nickname only a certain percentage would find that they had to tell a very short story to get their point across. Obviously her name had something to do with hamburgers but you might have to ask her for the real meaning if you wanted to know.
7. Mandy was on season six of Tough Enough.
It’s funny but a lot of fans probably remember when Tough Enough started if they’ve been watching the WWE long enough, and it’s just about as brutal now as it was back then. The reason behind this of course is that the wrestlers have to know just what to do so they’re not hurting each other in the ring by accident.
6. She’s taken her place in a couple of first ever matches in the WWE.
The Elimination Chamber and Royal Rumble matches used to be for men only until a little while ago when women started having their own matches. To be honest they put on just as good of a show and made it extremely entertaining.
5. Mandy has been a fitness competitor for a good number of years.
Taking a look at her pictures you can tell that she’s been keeping in shape and taking care of herself for years now. Fitness competitions are even more intense than wrestling matches if you’ve ever seen one, so it’s obvious that she’s had to keep herself in great shape in order to compete.
4. As you might have already guessed she has made an appearance on Total Divas.
It would seem that sooner or later every woman on the WWE roster has made their appearance on this show if only for a brief moment or longer. Some might wonder just how the show managed to get the ratings that elevated it to such a degree, but watching the divas roam around on screen should make it pretty obvious.
3. Carmella has accused her of being unsafe in the ring.
Marc Middleton of Wrestling Inc. did indicate that Carmella had deleted her tweet to Mandy, but as we all know at this point there’s nothing that gets permanently deleted off of the internet unless it’s done so by someone that has that kind of clout. Plus, there aren’t a lot of accusations that sting as much as calling another wrestler ‘unsafe’ when they’re in the ring, as it’s a point of pride for many of them that they know how to conduct themselves during a match.
2. Her net worth is around $1 million.
This might sound kind of low considering that she’s a WWE star, but if you look at what they get paid and how their contracts are written up you might not be too surprised. Plus, they don’t get paid the same as movie actors despite the fact that they do need some on screen ability.
1. She is an animal rights activist.
On top of all that she is the type that will go out and educate people on animal rights and how to keep from needlessly harming unwitting animals.
It could be interesting to see how far she goes in the WWE.
