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.
