As noted earlier today, NXT newcomer Lio Rush took to Twitter to crack joke about Emma being released from the WWE. This didn’t sit well with other and Rush issued a statement claiming that his tweet was “blown out of proportion.” You can see the statement below:

“At the end of the day, there’s o certain level of respect within professional wrestlers in the sports & ENTERTAINMENT industry that is noted within peers. With that being said, Emma I respect you and everything that you’ve done for our business. It saddens me that the controversial tweet “got completely blown out of proportion and looked at in a very insensitive way. As a family man with a 4 year of son and expecting on other, I would never laugh or mock the fact of someone loosing there job because of how it can affect self person and there families. Whatever the situation may be regarding the release. You’re an amazing performer and respected athlete by yours truly and I’m sure you will excel beyond exceptions. To my fans who may have seen this as inappropriate as well as Emma’s fans, I apologize and I love you ALL regardless of the responses. On Behalf of myself and the WWE GoodLuck!”
