The WWE made a slew of roster cuts this morning (Sun. October 29, 2017), and it turns out that the creator of the Women's Revolution, Emma, was sadly one of them.
Emma has been in the professional wrestling business since 2003 when she began training. After spending four years learning how to wrestle and working small shows Emma began working the independent circuit for promotions such as Shimmer Women Athletes, Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling, and Melbourne City Wrestling.
In 2011 Emma got her big break when she was discovered and signed by WWE to a developmental deal. She was sent to Tampa, Florida to work in the WWE's developmental territory known as Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).
She was also part of the rebranding of FCW which later became known as NXT. Despite having a rather goofy and bubbly character on WWE TV, Emma has proven to be a solid worker inside the ring and has put on some solid matches in her day. She is also very reliable to cut a good promo on the microphone as well.
Emma was bumped up to the main roster in January of 2014 where she was paired up with Santino Marella. After a year on the main roster as a singles competitor, however, WWE wasn't getting what they wanted out of Emma and sent her back to developmental.
Her run on NXT was actually very good as she won a couple of key matches and feuded over the NXT Women's Title with Asuka for some time. She returned to the main roster in March of 2016 but never really connected with the WWE Universe with her gimmick.
She seemed to be doing fine on WWE TV as of late, however, constantly taking credit for the ongoing Women's Revolution and welcoming Asuka to the main roster at Tables Ladders and Chairs (TLC) in an great back-and-forth contest which she unfortunately lost.
Today news broke that Emma had been released of her WWE contract, along with Darren Young and Summer Rae. The WWE Universe was not happy with WWE's release of Emma, and Emma sympathized with them on Twitter.
Emma got emotional on Twitter in response to her release by posting only a broken heart:
