10 WWE Stars Who Desperately Need New Gimmicks

9. Mandy Rose

Fans might be able to understand when WWE fails to capitalise on certain superstars. Samoa Joe never seemed to fit the WWE mould, no matter how elite his promos and performances were. The same can be said for many stars throughout the company's history, as Vince McMahon and his chosen yes-men continue to strive for that perfect aesthetic for HD TV.

Mandy Rose is just about as perfect aesthetic for HD TV as it gets, yet she still finds herself treading water doing a whole lot of nothing. She's also immensely talented, one of the most improved performers of the last few years. Rewind to the period following WrestleMania 36 and it seemed as though God's Greatest Creation was primed to become a major star on WWE TV. Then, nothing followed by Dana Brooke-partnering purgatory.

As with many names on this list, Mandy Rose doesn't need a dramatic change. She doesn't need to be repackaged as a baker, a bramble picker or a firewoman. She needs something, however, as 'generic blonde female number 5' is currently making a waste of her immense talents and potential.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
