Tommy Dreamer reveals who can replace Mandy Rose
According to ex-WWE wrestler Tommy Dreamer, Mandy Rose, the recently fired NXT star, can be replaced by either Natalya or Dana Brooke. Dreamer stated on the Busted Open podcast that Nattie and Brooke would both make excellent replacements for Mandy Rose in Toxic Attraction.
“I’m thinking literally Dana Brooke or Nattie. And it’s this veteran, ‘Listen, I’m talking to you. Talents that have been in this company, in NXT for a while. I could get you to the main roster. I could be doing all these things for you because look what happened for me in my career.’ She’s basically using these women who’re younger,” he said.
Dreamer added that Nattie might return to her heel gimmick, which would be advantageous for the stable Toxic Attraction, run by Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne.
“If Nattie did something dramatic or different, it’s a new spot for her. Nattie should either do that or Nattie should become like a frickin’ exactly what everyone hates, a Diva – a social media Diva. She posts so much pictures and if she was harkening back to the days of the Divas division, oh my God! She’d have so much heat,” he added.
