WWE has released Emma just over 48 hours after her arrest for shoplifting at a Walmart in Hartford, Connecticut, Emma has been released from WWE. The company issued the following statement Wednesday afternoon on dot com:
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.
News broke on Tuesday morning that Emma (whose real name is Tenille Dashwood) was arrested on Monday afternoon at a Walmart in Hartford and charged with sixth degree larceny. She was released one hour and thirteen minutes after her arrest and was backstage at this week’s show, which emanated from Hartford.
WWE issued a statement, explaining that Emma was “ultimately responsible for her personal actions” but confirmed they were aware of the arrest. Emma’s lawyer said on Tuesday afternoon the arrest was a mistake and that his client would complete community service.
As it turns out, Emma walked out of the Walmart having not paid for a red iHome ‘Slim Swivel’ iPad Mini case that was on sale for $21.14. Her mug shot was attached to a release issued by local police.
We knew the arrest could spell disaster for Emma as we reported on June 25, 2014 here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com that the Australian Diva was rarely discussed and her future was “questionable” at best.
