Emma, Summer Rae And Darren Young Released From WWE

WWE announced the Releases of Emma, Summer Rae and Darren Young today. The official statement on wwe.com reads: WWE has come to terms on the releases of WWE Superstars Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae.

WWE wishes them the best in all of their future endeavors.

Authors Take: Summer Rae and Darren Young being let go is no surprise (They haven’t been used for months) But Emma’s release is honestly shocking! After the debarcle that was “Emmalina” WWE was actually making good use of her and was seemingly poised for bigger things given the more high profile angles she had been working in recent months.



  • That sucks! (About Emma not the other two) She’s a great wrestler and unless she’s requested her release I don’t get why she’s gone.

  • Asukalanchian

    Wooooooooooooooow. That is a bunch of crud that Emma got released. Now if she requested her release I understand and feel she can excel on the Indie scene.
    Even more crazy is that Paige still has a job.


      Emma has been really good lately. WWE releases her but keeps foxy.come on.

  • Simon Veitch

    This is nuts, if it was 6 months ago and they released Emma it wouldn’t be so shocking, but they were finally utilising her properly and gave her her first singles PPV match the other week with Asuka. What the heck happened?

  • S.A.M.

    Summer and Darren don’t surprise me at all but Emma?! C’mon man she has been killing it when she was given any sort of chance. This is such a missed opportunity and I hope Emma can do great things on the Indies

  • “Top Heel” Myrtle Jacobs

    Honestly, I was not a fan of Emma, but I still find her release surprising. She held her own against Asuka. I still feel like her ring work was sloppy and her personality was bland, but it seems like they had plans for her.

  • How Darren kept the gig as long as he did amazes me. He was decent in the ring but terrible on the mic. WWE did what they could to get him over and no one cared. Summer Rae was better in both respects but she just wasn’t being used. Emma is the only real shock, though after the Emmalina thing, I knew this wasn’t gonna end well.

  • Vomkrieg

    New theme, PPV match, Put over half the division in order to fight Asuka first, then let go.

    I don’t get it at all. Why not have Asuka squash her if you were just going to release her.
