Mandy Rose moved to NXT in exchange for an unexpected superstar. The WWE Star was seen on this week’s episode of WWE NXT.
NXT Superstars Sarray and Gigi Dolin took on each other on this week’s episode of WWE NXT in a bid to prove their mettle to the fans in the arena and at home. To the surprise of both the wrestlers and fans, there was one more person interested in the proceedings inside the squared circle; Mandy Rose.
The WWE Star was at ringside watching both women go at each other. While she did not get physical, her presence created quite the buzz with fans. Many wondered the purpose for her being there. It appears that not only has Rose joined NXT permanently but she was in fact traded for an NXT star.

Could have at least finished the angle with Dana Brooke against Nattie and Tamina 🤷♂️

Wrestling insider Twitter account WrestleVotes went on to add that the move was actually an exchange involving RAW and NXT. Mandy went to NXT and in return, Aliyah moves up to RAW.
“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.”

This is a bizarre move for quite a few reasons. Just as the NXT stars who have or will debut on SmackDown, Rose’s move has been done so despite her already being involved in a storyline with the Women’s Tag Team Champions. It is more than likely that the WWE will simply discard it and move on to newer stories.
Also, with Rose down at NXT, the main roster now only has three tag teams in the women’s division and one of them just recently arrived on the SmackDown this week.
