WWE confirm that Monday Night Raw superstar Emma has been released

Breaking: WWE Has Come To Terms On The Release Of Emma

WWE Release Emma

As noted, WWE announced the releases of Emma, Summer Rae and Darren Young on Sunday.

Of those three, Emma is probably the most surprising. It's sad to see Emma go because they tried re-casting her a bunch of times but could never get the storytelling right for someone who I personally think is a pretty good performer.

If you haven't heard by now, the creator of the Women's Revolution has been released from WWE - as Emma has been handed her walking papers by the company.

Whether it was locking horns with Paige in NXT or playing nuanced characters that always managed to captivate the audience, Emma made her mark in the WWE despite a jarring lack of silverware.

Emma, real name Tenille Dashwood, also faced the same opponent again and suffered another defeat on Raw this week in what was her last match with the promotion.

The news will come as a massive shock to wrestling fans after the 28-year-old's recent push on Monday Night Raw. As a former WWE Tag Team Champion, Young has seen a few glimpses of success on WWE's main roster. She was ordered by the court ordered to perform one day of community service and an online course, after which the charge was dismissed.

Darren Young first broke into WWE in 2010 as one of the eight rookies introduced via the inaugural season of NXT in its "game show"/"rookie search" format.

That same year she got involved with Rusev on TV and formed an on-screen relationship. She has been off recovering from injuries since that time.

There has been no word on exactly what led to Young and Summer Rae's release.
