Rumors about WWE Release
Rumors were spreading all over the internet about Sara Lee- the winner of the female Tough Enough, being released from the WWE developmental contract because of her initial announcement regarding her pregnancy on Facebook with her husband, Wesley Blake.
But according to PWInsider reports, that the real reason behind her release was simply because she was not progressing in the ring.
It appears as if ‘the curse’ of Tough Enough has affected Lee too because only a few people have been successful in making a career from Tough Enough, for example, John Morrison and now-Former Intercontinental Champion The Miz.
Mandy Rose and Sara Lee Cat Fight
WWE superstar and Tough Enough alum Many Rose, who was a guest on Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia, talked about Lee during her interview about her contentious relationship with Sara Lee.
Rose ended up being a runner-up to Lee based on fan voting, but eventually, she received a developmental deal by WWE. During their season, Rose continually dismissed Lee for her lack of passion for wrestling. She said she was portrayed as a mean girl during her entire time there for the sake of the camera.
According to Rose, Lee is a lovely person, and they got along fine when the cameras were off. Moreover, Rose liked Lee and never had any harsh feelings for her.
And she felt evil at the end of the show. She didn’t know any of that dramas, and it was all scripted to spice up the entire show. They didn’t see each other much, but whenever they met and talked for a bit, Lee never confronted Rose for belittling her during the show.
Her major signature moves are Arm Wrench, Heart Punch, Multiple Shoot Kicks, to a cornered opponent, Russian Leg Sweep, Shoulder Block, and School Girl.
