The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced earlier today that they have released former NXT superstar Tenille Averil Dashwood better known by her in ring name Emma.
The world’s leading parent company of professional wrestling announced on wwe.com that they have reached a mutual agreement for releasing the superstar from her present WWE contract.
“WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae. WWE wishes Emma the best in all of her future endeavours,” the statement from WWE read on their official website.
Emma has been pretty vocal on social media with her recent booking where she was clearly denied opportunities while others enjoyed them repeatedly. She started an online campaign with her fans queueing up behind her, to get notice and be booked properly.
Emma was recently booked for a TLC match against debuting Asuka at TLC. Interestingly enough this was her first ever singles match in a pay per view in the main roaster. What was worse, was that since Asuka had been undefeated since her debut days at the company it was more than certain that she was to again lose and be only fed as a jobber to the Japanese superstar.
Emma has been one of the pioneers of the NXT women’s division and was the part of the first ever NXT Women’s Championship match against Paige in 2012 on the 24 July episode. She has even claimed and has been supported by many fans and pundits alike, that the duo were the actual women who started the famed “Women’s Revolution” in WWE.
But unlike the other Superstars like Paige, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss, her career in the main roaster has gone nowhere and after a failed initial face run, she had to go back to the Yellow brand and re-brand as a heel.
Her second run was no better, and even her much awaited character change to the lusty and glamorous Emmalina was short lived as it ended even before it started.
Trained by the great Lance Storm, the 28-year old has been a pretty well known name in the Independent Circuit. The Australian star has wrestled for several well known wrestling companies like Shimmer Women Athletes, Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling, Melbourne City Wrestling etc.
We can only hope the immensely talented wrestler will be making it big again in the independent circuit in the years to come.
Adding to this was former tag team champions and one half of the Prime Time Players Darren Young. He wasn’t seen much on television either and his release was coming just around the corner. Former Diva Summer Rae was also not featured on live TV since his angle with Rusev.
All the best to all the released wrestlers.
