Mandy Rose once dominated NXT with her 413-day reign as the NXT Women’s Champion. Her release from the company came last December, and she has been away from wrestling since then. But as a part of her historic reign, she recently put up her ring gear for sale on eBay. Since Wednesday, the bid for her red ring gear has elevated at every instance and has now reached a massive amount of US $29,500, which will continue until Thursday.
Mandy Rose‘s red ring gear was the one she wore in a last woman standing match against Alba Fyre on NXT. Her title defense came with some help from Fyre’s rival, Isla Dawn, and resulted in Mandy’s win over her opponent. Being one of the special matches for the Golden Goddess, she put up this signed ring gear in an auction to give to any one of her deserving fans. And to her surprise, the price for it will cross the $30K benchmark sooner or later, considering her fanbase.
The details of this ring gear written on eBay by her state that the inspiration for it was Nikki Bella‘s dressings. And when she wore it for the first time, she received a huge amount of praise for it and was showered with love on the internet. Thus, she wants her greatest fan to have this and take good care of it for the sake of her memory of her 413-day title reign. Rose initially contemplated giving it away, but respecting the fans’ love for it, she will be doing the tough task of getting rid of it.
Rose’s release from the company came as a result of her FanTime account. Just a day before her release, she lost her championship against Roxanne Perez on the December 13 episode of NXT. When asked later about joining a different promotion, she denied those chances and said she wanted to keep herself away from the wrestling business for a while.
