NXT Surprises

07/14/2021

It is official.  Mandy Rose moved to NXT and is no longer apart of the WWE main roster.  Mandy made an appearance Tuesday night as she walked passed Franky Monet stating that it seems there is new management.  Her demeanor seemed more strict and focus.

Mandy leaves her teammate Dana Brooks as she is now left on her own or presumably quiet for the time being.  

Other surprises is the in-ring action of Samoa Joe.  He was the special guest referee in the NXT Championship.  Karrion Kross defeated Johnny Gargano to retain the title.  However, Kross attacked Joe and applied a guillotine hold until Joe passed out.  

For this reason, expect Karrion Kross to defend his title against Samoa Joe in the next NXT Takeover.
