Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterMonday's Raw saw the return of Rosa Mendes, who appeared as the dancing partner of The Miz as part of his storyline ridiculing Fandango. It marked as the 33-year-old's first television appearance since April after being sent home early from that month's European tour for was cited by WWE to online wrestling news outlets as "personal reasons."
According to the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the WWE Diva was in a rehabilitation center during her time away from the road. The publication added that many people within WWE believe that she fabricated a story last year where her then-fiancé, former WWE talent Steven Slocum (a/k/a Jackson Andrews), had physically abused her, and compounded with her latest ordeal, her employment status was considered on thin ice.
After arriving at San Antonio International Airport on August 5, 2012, an intoxicated Mendes, whose real name is Milena Roucka, contacted the San Antonio Police department to file battery charges against Slocum for a domestic issue that took place at their home in Las Vegas, Nevada, prior to her flight. Roucka told officers "that she was afraid her fiancé would try and kill her" and "the abuse had been an on-going thing." Police on the scene took photos of Roucka's body, which showed scratches and bruising from the incident.
Regarding April's issue, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Roucka had been "partying too much on the tour," with one company source describing her as "a mess." PWInsider.com noted that the WWE Diva has a history of similar issues, which prompted company officials to send her home.
Roucka subsequently addressed the matter on 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."
