Developmental territories (2006–2008)[edit]

In the summer of 2006, Roucka competed in the WWE Diva Search and reached the final eight. She won the first round, a dance competition.[7][9] After she was eliminated on August 24, WWE then signed her to a developmental contract.[7][10]

Roucka was assigned to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), WWE's developmental territory. She debuted as a heel, under the ring name Roucka, and was the valet for the Bad Kompany stable (Mike Kruel, Shawn Osborne and Eddie Craven). In early 2007, she participated in the 'Miss OVW Contest'.[11] She was in Kruel's corner when he defeated Boris Alexiev for the OVW Heavyweight Championship in February.[11] She made her in-ring debut on March 24, losing to Jennifer Mae.[11] Later that night, she teamed with Beth Phoenix, Katie Lea and Melody, to lose to ODB, Serena, Victoria Crawford and Maryse.[11] In mid-2007, her opponents included Crawford, Phoenix, Lea and ODB.[11] In June, Roucka unsuccessfully challenged ODB for the OVW Women's Championship.[11] On September 19, she won a six-way match to capture the OVW Women's Championship.[11][12] She then feuded with Lea, winning several non-title matches.[11] In November, she and Kruel lost a mixed tag team match to Lea and Atlas DaBone.[11] On December 12, she defeated Lea in a "Kiss my Foot" title match.[11] In January 2008, Lea defeated Roucka in a non-title match.[13] In early February 2008, WWE and OVW ended their developmental relationship.[13] After holding the OVW Women's Championship for five months, Roucka dropped it to Katie Lea on February 20.[12][13] On February 29, she had her last OVW match, teaming with Josie to lose to Melody and Reggie.[13]

In March 2008, Roucka debuted for Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), WWE's new developmental territory.

In July, they defeated Bella and Johnny Curtis.[5] This led to Roucka managing Allen.[5] In August, she allied with Alicia Fox and Daisy to continue feuding with The Bellas, who had joined forces with Tiffany.[5] In the rest of the year, she wrestled Fox, Daisy, and Miss Angela.[5] In January 2009, Roucka became Rosa Mendes, and debuted on Raw.[14] In February, Mendes began feuding with Miss Angela over her Queen of FCW crown, attacking her on several occasions and trying to steal it.[14] On the April 19 FCW Television, they had a match for the crown.

The next week, she jumped the guardrail and attacked the new number one contender, Melina, who was attacking Phoenix.[18] The next week, Stephanie McMahon said Mendes had been banned from WWE events after attacking Melina again.[19] Mendes evaded the ban by disguising herself as a paparazzo in Melina's entrance and attacked her again.[20]
