There was speculation last week that Mandy Rose suffered an injury during the six-woman brawl that developed after Asuka and Nia Jax’s match on the Nov. 9 Raw.
Rose got caught up taking a bump through the ropes and landed awkwardly on her shoulder, then was quickly taken to the back by officials.
On Raw last night (Nov. 16), Mandy was written off the women’s Survivor Series team by an attack from Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler. It seemed plausible that could have been done to provide storyline cover for the real injury from the week before. And according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, that’s exactly what it was.
There’s no word yet on the severity of Rose’s injury or how long she may be out. The above spot where she was hurt did involve Nia Jax, who has a reputation among fans for being a “dangerous” worker, but there are no signs Jax was at fault here and it’s not believed she has any heat over the incident.
Dana Brooke was also pulled from this Sunday’s PPV match after she was attacked backstage by RECKONING (Mia Yim), but that injury is reportedly kayfabe. WWE just wanted two tag partners on the team with Jax, Baszler & Lana, so Lacey Evans & Peyton Royce were subbed in for Brooke & Rose.
We’ll keep you posted with news on Mandy’s health.
