• Reason Behind WWE Dropping The Lesbian Angle Between Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville

As seen on SmackDown back in June, WWE teased a lesbian storyline between Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville. You can watch it below:

According to Brad Shepard, WWE didn’t move forward with their plan due to fear of fan backlash to this angle:

“The idea a couple of months ago with the Mandy Rose/Sonya Deville storyline was Mandy ‘fake’ coming out to Sonya and using her. I’m not sure if that’s the direction still, but I do know they had hesitations on following through due to not wanting to upset people.

One alternative idea they’ve considered to not upset people is Mandy being so self-centered and selfish that she doesn’t even realize Sonya likes her more than as a friend.”
