During the October 5th installment of NXT 2.0, WWE Superstar Rick Boogs took to social media to compare being squeezed by Mandy Rose’s thighs to a sloth’s death grip, to which Rose responded with her own joking reply.
Rose’s victory over Ember Moon on NXT 2.0 continued her march towards NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez. During the match, Rose wrapped Moon in a leg scissors, which made Boogs wonder how it felt.
The SmackDown Superstar envisioned the situation on social media:
“Mandy Rose squeezing you between her thighs must feel like a sloth decimating your core with its death clutch grip…I’ve seen her squat in the gym…she’s got some POWAAA #WWENXT”
Mandy Rose then gave her reaction to Boogs’ comments.

Rose and the rest of Toxic Attraction continued to make their presence known later in the show. The trio interrupted Raquel Gonzalez’s segment before the champion’s own backup arrived in the form of NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Io Shirai and Zoey Stark.
Bron Breakker also accepted NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa’s challenge for a match at Halloween Havoc on the show.
Parker Boudreaux, now known as Harland, made his anticipated WWE television debut. Joe Gacy defeated Ikemen Jiro in singles action on NXT 2.0, but the biggest news arguably came after the bell. After the match, Gacy assisted Jiro to his feet, embracing his opponent before returning up the ramp.
As Gacy came to a halt in the entranceway, he looked up to see Harland staring back at him. Many fans took a second to recognise the man glaring at Gacy, now sporting a shaved head as Harland.
