WWE.com announced today that they have come to terms on the release of Raw Women’s Championship contender, Emma.
This is a bit surprising since Emma had recently received more television time with her “It’s all about me” gimmick focusing on her Twitter personality. Just last week she was picked to be Asuka’s first match on the WWE main roster.
It was a bit of a rocky road for the Aussie after she became a fan favorite in NXT. This isn’t her first release, as she was also let go for less than a day years back after a shoplifting incident.
After a failed initial run on the main roster as the bubbly, clumsy Emma, she went back to NXT and reinvented herself as a villain. Her second main roster run was marred by injuries and a failed repackaging as Emmalina, where rumors were management felt she wasn’t committed to the role.
The wording “come to terms” hints that this could have been a mutual thing, but we’ll have to wait to see if we ever learn the actual reason surrounding this.
IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW
On 4 September episode of Raw, Emma teamed with Nia Jax to defeat both Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks to earn spots for herself and Jax in the Raw Women’s Championship match at No Mercy, her first pay per view match since the 2014 Survivor Series. At the event, she was unsuccessful after Bliss pinned the returning Bayley.
On the October 9 episode of Raw, after confronting General Manager Kurt Angle about who would face the debuting Asuka at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, Emma defeated Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox, Bayley and Dana Brooke to earn the right to face Asuka, where she lost via submission. Frustrated over her loss, Emma challenged Asuka to rematch. On the 23 October episode of Raw, Emma was defeated by Asuka in what would be her final match in WWE.
