Mandy Rose talks pitching Otis story to Vince McMahon and taking Becky Lynch’s spot

WWE Superstar Mandy Rose recently appeared on the Gorilla Position podcast. The SmackDown Superstar would discuss a number of topics from her recent WWE career on the show, including her ongoing storyline with Otis and Becky Lynch leaving the company due to her pregnancy.

“It’s been awesome and it’s been such a fun ride” Rose began discussing her and Otis’ storyline. “I’m really grateful and happy. I never thought that this story would resonate this well with the fans and be so exciting. I’m just really was a group effort, we all [performers and writers] kind of came up with this.”

Mandy then discussed how she plucked up the courage to pitch the story to Vince McMahon himself. “I got the courage to go into Vince’s [McMahon] office and show him this pitch, and then with the help of everyone? It’s been so much fun and it involves so many different people too. We’ve taken it slow, little by little, and not had the fans get tired of seeing it. They want to see more and it’s just done really well.”

Rose would then move on to discussing the former RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, who recently announced that she was pregnant. “Becky, I’m really happy for her that she’s going to go and be a mom now. But, I think for a lot of the women? It’s time to step up and it motivates a lot of people to get that spot. I’m always looking to take that spot, no matter what it is, even if the person still there. But now that there is that opening? That’s definitely motivating for sure.”

Is Mandy Rose the sort of performer who would be able to take the top spot on Monday Night RAW? She seems to be in favour with Vince McMahon due to the Otis storyline so it is definitely a posibility.
