WWE Superstar Mandy Rose is officially off the market. She announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, former WWE Superstar Tino Sabatelli, over the weekend on her Instagram.
Rose, nee Amanda Rose Saccomanno, age 32, wrote on September 17, “My heart is so full.” The Instagram post features several photos of Rose and Sabatelli, nee Sabatino Piscitelli, age 39, posing together, and Rose showing off her lovely, new engagement ring. The couple looks blissfully happy and very much in love.
Mandy Rose Officially Betrothed To Former WWE Wrestler
The couple has been dating since at least 2018 when they attended the WWE Hall of Fame 2018 Induction Ceremony together. Sabbatelli is a former college football and NFL player. He made the transition to professional wrestling when he signed a developmental deal with WWE back in 2014.
Sabbatelli later formed a tag team with Riddick Moss in WWE’s developmental league, NXT. However, he was released in a wave of pandemic-related budget cuts in April 2020.
Interestingly enough, WWE picked Sabbatelli back up again in October 2020. As reported by Fightful, Sabbatelli never appeared again on WWE programming after his latest signing. He was later handed his second release by WWE in June 2021.
A Banner Year For The NXT Women’s Champion
Rose originally joined WWE as a contestant of the 2015 season of the “Tough Enough” reality series, where she was a runner-up. She later signed a multi-year WWE contract and joined the cast of the former WWE reality show, “Total Divas.”
Rose worked at the WWE Performance Center and also the NXT brand for a while. This is likely where she met and started dating Sabbatelli.
Rose, a former fitness model, has been on a roll ever since she returned to WWE’s NXT brand in July 2021. She found herself in the role of the figurehead of a new heel (bad guy) group called Toxic Attraction. She would later go on to beat Raquel González at last year’s Halloween Havoc special to capture the NXT Women’s Champion; the first WWE title of Mandy Rose’s career.
She has remained champion since that time, making her the third longest-reigning NXT Women’s Champion of all time. Rose earned another accolade during Labor Day Weekend. At NXT World’s Collide on September 4, she won a Triple Threat Match with NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura and No. 1 contender Blair Davenport to also win the NXT UK Women’s Championship and become the newly unified, undisputed NXT Women’s Champion.
A Strong Loving Relationship
Mandy Rose has undoubtedly been having a great year. She and her longtime friend and former WWE tag team partner, Sonya Deville (nee Daria Berenato) also recently launched their own donut shop and lifestyle brand, DaMandyz Donuts, after their initial YouTube series where they went around the country sampling the best donuts around.
While Sabbatelli’s WWE career never truly took off, he and Rose appear to be doing great together with their relationship. He wrote on his Instagram on Valentine’s Day earlier this year, “My Valentine, My Ride or Die, My Queen. So proud of this woman. Keep killin the game.”
This will be the first marriage for them both.
