• Mandy Rose Comments On WWE Teasing A Lesbian Storyline With Sonya Deville
WWE recently teased a lesbian storyline between Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville on SmackDown.
You can watch it below:
During a recent interview with Uproxx, Mandy was asked about this storyline and below is what she said:
“I don’t have many insights to offer on that. I think there’s definitely rumors and stuff like that. But it’s also hard to say because my character is pretty $exual and pretty sassy, the way I am.
So anything I do, it doesn’t really matter if it’s to Sonya or to anyone else. It’s just who my character is, so it’s hard to judge. But I guess you’re just going to have to stay tuned, right? You never know.”
