Emma seemed to be doing better in WWE and experiencing a resurgence in her character. Her heel persona was getting more attention on television and she was chosen to be Asuka’s first opponent on the main roster But then she was released seemingly out of nowhere.
The woman currently taking on the indie wrestling scene under her real name Tenille Dashwood recently spoke to Sporting News where she revealed her emotional and logical reaction when she discovered she was wished the best in her future endeavors.
“I was definitely surprised. I really enjoyed my match with Asuka at the pay-per-view, and that was the first singles match [on pay-per-view] that I had there. So I was definitely surprised when I found out, but it gave me almost like a launching pad to go out and wrestle for all these companies elsewhere. It was almost a reminder for the fans that I can wrestle. So it really helped me moving forward and I’m glad that I can wrestle everywhere now and the demand is there.”
Sometimes it doesn’t make much sense when WWE releases someone and on the other hand, there are times it makes perfect sense. Emma’s WWE release was a mixture of the two. But never say never about Emma coming back to WWE because anything is possible.
