Backstage News On Why WWE Ultimately Released Emma, When She Found Out About Her Departure

Bill Pritchard

Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated is reporting WWE ultimately released Emma this week due to ‘considerable’ heat she had with the company.

Emma reportedly made enemies with some of the members of the writing staff over time, and this was made worse due to her being so vocal about her WWE status on Twitter. It was noted that some viewed her exit as “addition by subtraction” in the locker room.

Barrasso noted Emma’s release was said to send a message to the WWE locker room, citing recent departures by Jimmy Jacobs and Neville, and Nia Jax’s leave of absence that talent will take note about this moving forward.

WWE reportedly informed Emma (and Summer Rae and Darren Young) they would be released on Sunday, after the decision to cut them was made during Friday’s budget meeting with Vince McMahon.
