Former WWE Superstar
Rosa Mendes is living proof that, in WWE, dreams come true all the time. For weeks, Rosa was seen at ringside, wildly waving signs that proclaimed her devotion to Beth Phoenix and vehemently cheering on the dominant Glamazon. Mendes' support eventually turned problematic for WWE security personnel. Leaping barricades, the future Diva found herself physically involved in Beth's bouts, as a way to sustain her idol's supremacy.
Amazingly, her tenacity was rewarded, and Rosa was offered an internship position with “Glamarella.” While most interns spend their days slogging through a host of increasingly menial tasks, Rosa's gig led her directly to the ring. After learning at the knee of The Glamazon (and to a lesser extent, Beth's former beau, Santino Marella), Rosa was ready to fly on her own.
Mixing it up with Alicia Fox, Eve and others, the stunning Latina made good use of the on-the-job training from Beth, a former Women’s and Divas Champion. She also led the team of Primo & Epico to a long reign with the WWE Tag Team Championship.
While netting the butterfly-emblazoned Divas Title is at the top of her priorities, the Slammy Award winning femme fatale’s latest goal is to keep her eye on E!’s "Total Divas" and SmackDown as the blue brand’s backstage interviewer. Once an intern and manager, Rosa is now a full-fledged competitor and reality television star. How about that for upward mobility?
