WWE just announced that Emma has been released from her contract.
The company put out a statement saying, “WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Emma. WWE wishes Emma the best in all of her future endeavors.”
The 28-year-old, whose real name is Tenille Dashwood, had a rough stint in WWE. After a successful run in NXT, she was brought to the main roster and paired with Santino Marella. A year later she was sent back to NXT and debuted her Evil version of the character.
Emma returned to the main roster in 2016 but failed to get much of a push. She was supposed to debut a new character earlier this year named Emmalina, but plans were scrapped.
Last Sunday, Emma lost to Asuka in her main roster debut at WWE TLC. She then demanded a rematch and lost the following night to Asuka on Raw, which was her last TV appearance. Emma has yet to comment on any of her social media accounts on the release.
It’s unclear what led to her release.

WWE just announced that Darren Young has been released from his contract.
The company released a statement saying they’ve come to terms on his release and wish him “the best” in all his future endeavors.”
Young made his WWE debut in 2010 during the first season of NXT, with CM Punk as his mentor, and went on to be part of the Nexus stable.
After splitting from the group, Darren and Titus O’Neil formed the Primetime Players. The tag team were on-again, off-again for the next few years.
When that ran its course, Young was paired with Bob Backlund and the duo attempted to “Make Darren Young Great Again.” The 33-year-old wrestler got injured in January though and things were halted. He was cleared for action in August, but hasn’t been used on TV since.

WWE just announced that Summer Rae has been released from her contract.
The company put out a statement saying they’ve come to terms on her release and wish Summer “the best” in all her future endeavors.”
The 33-year-old made her debut in 2013 as Fandango‘s dance partner. After splitting with the wrestler, she eventually landed a role in the Marine 4 in 2015.
That same year she got involved with Rusev on TV and formed an on-screen relationship. When Lana and Rusev’s real-life engagement was announced by TMZ though, the storyline fell apart.
She wasn’t used much afterward and eventually got injured in 2016.
No word on the reason for her release at this point.
