Update On Rosa Mendes’ Status With WWE After Being Sent Home From European Tour

News surfaced this week that Milena Roucka, known as Rosa Mendes, was sent home from WWE’s ongoing European tour. The sports-entertainment organization issued a statement to online news outlets stating, “Milena Roucka (Rosa Mendes) left the international tour for personal reasons.”

According to this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer, the 33-year-old had been “partying too much on the tour,” with one company source describing her as “a mess.” Talent and other employees were under the belief that she would probably not rejoin the company on the road for a while, but that she has not been suspended.

PWInsider.com noted that the WWE Diva has a history of similar issues, which prompted company officials to send her back home.

Mendes addressed the matter Monday afternoon via Twitter, writing, “Just wanted to let all my #Mendesluverz that I’m ok. I had to take care of some personal matters. Thank you for all your support. Love you.”

Mendes manages the real-life cousin tandem of Primo and Epico, and is considered the star of the group due to her appearance and charisma. Though Primo and Epico are well-liked within the company and considered good workers, the general feeling is that they lack charisma and therefore aren’t heavily promoted.

    I like Primo and Epico. Sure, neither of them have the charisma as Carlito had when he was in WWE, but I feel it is more of the focus away from the tag division that has ruined their stride more than anything.

    Ok, so they lack charisma. That doesn’t mean you still can’t use them to rebuild the tag team division. Just give them a chance. Having them get squashed by Khali and Hornswoggle certainly isn’t helping.

    I’d prefer Primo and Epico over the likes of Khali and Hornswaggle. WWE’s tag team roster now is a lot of B.S. because there’s no real passion for their division.

    Yes they aren’t charismatic as Carlito (they have charisma especially Primo) but they are talented in the ring, so why don’t you try to bring him back and pair the 3 of them? That could help the tag team division and the lack of stars they have in the roster. Or put another manager with them, someone who isn’t just an eye candy. Just give them a opportunity. Getting squashed by Khali and Hornswagle isn’t doing anything for them.
