Answer: The shock of root loss due to transplanting can be severe for any plant. Since you've transplanted it in early spring, I am betting that it will recover. (This is the best time to move a rose.) I would suggest you prune it back by 1/2 and make sure the soil is kept moist but not soggy. The rose should bounce back and be off to a good start by March or April.
