"WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Diva Emma as of today, July 2, 2014. WWE wishes Emma the best in all her future endeavors."
Obviously, this is fallout of her arrest for shoplifting on Monday at a Hartford, CT Wal-Mart.
Emma, real name Tenile Dashwood, was the company's first-ever Australian-born Diva. Trained by Lance Storm, she was signed to a developmental deal in 2011 and became one of the more popular female performers in NXT. She was brought up to the main roster earlier this year in a comedy role, teaming with Santino Marella. She made her lone Wrestlemania appearance in a multi-Diva match at Wrestlemania 30.
Her release comes five weeks before she would have made her WWE debut in her home country of Australia as she was booked for live events in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth the weekend of 8/7-8/9.
