Mandy Rose has revealed she is doing just fine for herself after World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. released her last December.

Her dismissal was said to have been caused by her having a subscription-based FanTime account, which allegedly breached her contract with the WWE.

In a recent interview, Rose expressed her gratitude for her time with the WWE but said that the contract she signed should not have precluded her from exploring other lucrative opportunities.

The title battle between her and Roxanne Perez, in which she lost the NXT women's championship, was her final appearance in the WWE. Rose recently said that she has yet to close the door on a possible return to the WWE.

Speaking with the New York Post, Rose disclosed that she has had no money issues since her departure from the WWE.

The company released the former NXT women's champion in December following claims that she breached her contract for having a subscription-based FanTime account.

The platform shares many similarities with OnlyFans, a popular subscription-based app where individuals post pictures and videos for their fans.

It was alleged that Rose used her FanTime account in such a manner, often sharing risqué photos and clips of herself, which her fans could have access to after subscribing.

Per the publication, Rose has made more than $1 million on FanTime, primarily due to her increasing her subscription price from $25 to $40.

Rose has since refuted that posting "racy images" was the main reason she was let go from the WWE.

"I wasn't told about racy images," she said, per the New York Post. "I wasn't told about anything else. I was told about the subscription-based platform."

Reflecting on her departure, the content creator expressed her appreciation for her time with the WWE but feels that the contract she signed should not have prevented her from pursuing other lucrative endeavors.

She said, "I am grateful and very humbled with everything I've done and made at the company [WWE], but in today's day and age, there are so many other avenues and so many other marketing opportunities, it's like why can't I do both?"

Rose also pointed out that her desire to safeguard her interests played a huge role in her decision to own a FanTime account.

The former wrestler added.: "At the end of the day, I'm the only one watching out for myself and my career. Everyone's replaceable in our business – it's true."

Rose's last appearance at the WWE was the title match between her and Roxanne Perez. Perez earned the opportunity to face Rose after coming tops at the first Women's Iron Survivor Challenge at Deadline.

The former WWE wrestler was defeated by her opponent after taking a dropkick to the stomach and was finished off with Pop Rocks, a hallmark technique of Perez.

The loss ended Rose's reign as NXT Women's Champion 413 days after winning the title in a Trick or Street Fight over Raquel Rodriguez at NXT Halloween Havoc.

Despite her defeat, which emotionally overwhelmed her, Rose received a standing ovation from fans amid loud chants of her name.

For Rose, how she lost the title did not sit well with her, regardless of her issues with the WWE showrunners at the time.

"For me to lose the title on such a whim on a random Tuesday night with zero storytelling and zero promotion leading up to the match was a shocker. I was very caught off guard," Rose told the  New Your Post.

Rose claimed that she had anticipated the championship bout to happen in January. However, she was informed that it had been shifted forward "without notice," which, according to the former wrestler, was a move that "usually doesn't happen in our company."

Regarding a future return to the WWE, Rose shared during her appearance on the Tamron Hall Show earlier in the month that it was still a possibility.

"I would say obviously, never say never… I don't know what the future holds," said Rose on the show.
