Vince McMahon Wants to Push Mandy Rose; More on Natalya/Rousey Match


-- Vince McMahon is said to be "very high" on the idea of pushing Mandy Rose as a star, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. It's said to be a similar strategy that the company had with Lana when she split from Rusev before she gradually faded into being just another woman on the roster.

-- The reason that the Natalya vs. Ronda Rousey match on this past week's Raw was not practiced ahead of time and instead "called in the ring" is because of WWE running two shows in one night (the live Raw on 12/17 and then the taping immediately after). As per theObserver, due to the women's gauntlet match being so extensive and long on the live Raw, it took a lot of preparation and as a result, there was no time for anyone to plan out the Rousey/Natalya match.
