With that being said, Rose is grateful for the WWE, but admitted and explained why she is disappointed.
“Losing the title was obviously a gut punch. I was so disappointed,” she continued to tell Hall. “But at the end of the day my purpose was gone and that’s where I felt lost and confused, because of all the hard work that I put into it. Driving home from that, there’s a lot of things going through my mind. But at the end of the day, like I said, I love what I’ve done in WWE and I love the platform it presented me with. So I am forever grateful to them.”
