WWE's Mandy Rose Shares Swimsuit Photo of "Yacht Tings"
WWE star Mandy Rose (real name Amanda Rose Saccomanno) trains like an athlete—and knows when it's time to relax and recover. Rose, 33, is enjoying a summer vacation on a luxurious yacht, soaking up the sunshine in a pink bikini that perfectly shows off her incredibly strong physique. "Yacht tings 😎🛥️," she captioned a social media post highlighting her trip. So how exactly does she get those muscles? Here are 5 ways Rose stays fit and ready to fight.
Rose started her career as a fitness model, so being in front of the camera doesn't faze her. "When I was crowned the 2014 WBFF Bikini World Champion, that helped in getting some attention," she says. "I had a small supplement sponsorship and a decent social media following, which I ran all myself. It was soon after that I received a call from a WWE recruiter, who asked if I would be interested in trying out for their reality show, Tough Enough. At that moment, I knew I could become a WWE superstar."
Trained By the Best
Rose credits WWE Performance Center Assistant Head Coach Sara Amato with training her to be a superstar. "She's always been amazing and she really 'gets' me when it comes to the ring work," she says. "In fact, Sara's the one who taught me that bicycle knee — my finisher. She just had this vision. She came up to me and she said, 'You know, I feel like you could throw a really good bicycle knee.' And this was like years ago during my first run in NXT. And I remember saying, 'Oh, you think so?' So I practiced it and I just started nailing it. Sara was like, 'Yup, I knew it.' She just knows my natural style and skill set and what I'd be good at and what I wouldn't be good at."
Ready For the Next Challenge
Rose makes sure to rest between matches—but never quite switches off. "You know, it's a little bit of both," she says. "I love to celebrate and give myself a little pat on the back and think about what my next challenge is going to be. Obviously, relaxing and taking care of your body is really important — and training the way I do, I always need to relax and recover. But at the end of the day, I have a target on my back and I know that there will be another woman waiting to step up."
Rose considers herself a Renaissance woman when it comes to her interests and passions. "I am not only an athlete and sports entertainer, but also have a huge passion for fitness, beauty and fashion, so I am open to many different types of brands," she says. "When it comes to brands approaching me, I just need them to be very specific, to the point of what they want and need from me. I also look for brands I can have a long-relationship with rather than taking short-term contracts."
Rose always looks flawless in the ring thanks to her own skincare line. "I honestly didn't have a great routine until Amarose," she says. "I was just always trying different things. My mom would bring home so many samples of stuff, I would always try different products. I feel like that was just me experimenting at a young age. Since I developed Amarose I've really focused on such a strict routine and regimen for a few years now, and I've noticed such a difference in my skin because of that consistency and using the same products that I know work for me."
