Mandy Rose is currently on top of the NXT Women’s roster by becoming the unified champion of the division. She was on a much-deserved break from this past week’s NXT programming. But that didn’t stop her from getting discussed within the WWE Universe as she literally appeared to be a ‘hot’ topic of the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump on YouTube.
WWE Raw Superstars Bayley, IYO SKY, and Dakota Kai of Damage CTRL faction have recently appeared on the weekly show of the WWE and given their thoughts on Mandy Rose’s current NXT Women’s Championship reign. Kai praised her opponent from Worlds Collide 2022, Meiko Satomura, but then also mentioned how the champion’s performance proved people wrong.
“Meiko Satomura is there who’s an insane legend… So, to see someone of that caliber being able to be a part of the women’s division and elevate all of them is crazy. And the fact that Mandy, I think, proved a lot of people wrong with that match, just goes to show that she can hang. I’m excited to see where this goes,” Kai stated.
SKY was then specifically asked about how she feels Mandy Rose is doing as the reigning champion when she mentioned her as the ‘hot champion.’ You can check out the segment as given below:

As noted above, Mandy Rose is having a phenomenal run on the NXT roster since returning to the brand in the summer of 2021. She started by leading Toxic Attraction, along with Jacey Jayne and Gigi Dolin, and the three were pretty quick to take over the women’s division. The latter duo already made main roster appearances and they’ve also been former two-time NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Mandy Rose herself has been the NXT Women’s Champion for 300+ days starting from Halloween Havoc 2021. She’s recently toppled Charlotte Flair in terms of the length of the reign. During last Sunday’s Worlds Collide event, she unified the belt with the NXT UK Women’s Championship to become a dual champion.
