WWE started cleaning house today with the release of Emma and now the company is parting ways with Summer Rae.

WWE released this statement about the situation:

“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.”

Summer Rae has been out of action since sustaining an injury in the summer of 2016.

Her last televised wrestling appearance was on Superstars on July 22nd, 2016. Fortunately Rae managed to overcome Alicia Fox in their single bout.

Summer was spotted training alongside Emma in recent months, and was also allegedly cleared to wrestle, despite not appearing on WWE television since 2016.

Despite not appearing on television, Summer took things in her own hands, appearing on multiple different magazine covers and on Maxim‘s hot 100 list.

Summer and Emma, along with Paige, originally kicked off a renewed focus on the women’s division when they were both in NXT. As the First Lady of NXT, she created the BFFs, recruiting both Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks, leading them to numerous victories over other women in the division in 2014.

Everyone at Diva Dirt will miss Summer Rae and we wish you all the best in the future!

What do you think of this news? Sound off in the comments below.

  • Darryl lee

    Although I’m not as upset as Emma getting her release, summer Rae was clearly underutilized. I thought she was a good wrestler and had the potential to be a good heel like Emma. Oh Well, hope she does well.

  • Shady Won ?

    Welp it was coming sooner or later, I’m not mad. Emma deserved better

  • Aye Mate

    Not that it isn’t a fair waste, the writing has been on the wall for some time now here.

  • Laquane Anderson
  • HOLLA

    These releases are making my stomach hurt. Ugh

  • It

    FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She had no skills in the ring. She looked like she had 1 month of in ring experience…. Go back to where you came from… goodbye

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Before her hiatus from that movie Summer could go in that ring and she definetly didn’t look like she had 1 month of in ring experience

      • It

        LOOOOOL

  • Well she’s been out of action for so long that it isn’t that much of a loss anymore.

  • I’ll miss her mic work. She really had me shook with her promos majority of the time.

  • Asa “Fck Fck” Von Erich

    Not surprised, but she seems to be doing well, so she’ll be fine.

  • Mandoceleb
    • Parasite
      • John Finnie

        Well that youtube video said Emma Summer & Alexa will be gone by 2018 so……. may happen
        If they took the belt of Mickiee in 010 then fired her & Maria then Alexa isnt safe just cause shes champ

        • A?.

          You have to be very naive if you think they’re going to let Alexa go. The girl is not amazing in the ring but she’s over, can work with the mic and sells a lot of merch, plus she’s everything Vince likes. But keep dreaming, I guess.

          • John Finnie

            Oh i know they wont let Alexa go….. BUT in 2010 if i said Mickie & Maria are getting fired you.would call me deluded……BUT it happened

          • A?.

            Maria was being used as a jobber at that point, Alexa is a big deal. Leave the crack behind sweetheart.

          • John Finnie

            & whats your excuse for mickie?? Who had just won the title in less than 30 secs 3 weeks before??
            Alexa is as big a wwe lets her be,
            Just like sasha Bayley & Becky who ars all taking back seats
            Trust me when i say their is space for Alexa in the back of the bus soon enought…… do u think fora minute they will keep pushing her hard after Askua or Mickie take the title away from her!!! Dont answer u & i both know Sasah Bayley Mickie Nia will all be pushed against Askua once she has destroyed Lil miss piss

            One more thing do u remember they were going to give stacey the title from Golden girl Trish Stratus?? NOT Everyone stays on top

          • John Finnie

            & mickie was a champ sweetpea. Leave the crack alone dearie

      • Mandoceleb
    • KatyaMenelli

      That would make my month!!!

  • https://twitter.com/WWENetwork/status/919684446491590657

    It was her dream. Just because she didn’t do indies, don’t mean she gets no sympathy.

    • Darryl lee

      Actually Aries, Neville and Emma all came from wrestling in the Indies. All Of their potentials were wasted.

      • Rosanna

        We’re talking about Summer Rae so there’s no actually.

      • Mark?

        Actually, no one cares. This is about QUEEN SUMMER.

    • IconicTrio

      Course it doesn’t! many of us didn’t know that :)

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      After being hired by WWE this is everyone’s dream.

      • Your everyday nightmare.

        LOG OUT
        WE DON’T NEED U HERE.
        WE DON’T NEED HATERS.

      • KatyaMenelli

        before she was hired by WWE, It was her dream. You can even see interviews where prior to being signed, she talked about WWE in quite a bit of them.

    • Kelly_Killer

      Preach !!!

  • I’m pissed. The LEAST they could’ve done is just bring her back and see where it goes. She would’ve freshened up any brand she went to. So much potential wasted. This is not how I imagined the First Lady of NXT to end up :(

    • ssilva872

      I was never a big fan but I agree that they should have at least gave her one last storyline.

      • Yeah like a manager role would’ve been good at least. They wasted her time

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      They didn’t even give her a chance. If they just tried and booked her well, she could have been successful.

  • ???

    I’m in SHOCK , I click DD and saw Emma AND Summer Rae released !! WTF is wrong with them ??

    I knew Summer Rae will be released sooner or later, BUT EMMA ????

    This is horrible news .. so they are keeping Tamina and they release Emma and Summer Rae ?? I just can’t with WWE .

    • John Finnie

      Tamina has kids she will retire. Emma will do the indies

    • PeppermintButler

      Emma asked to be release, I would too if I’m continuesly booked horribly. I bet Summer feels the same so she didn’t bother coming back. Damn it WWE!!!

      • Dylan Gutierrez

        No she didn’t. She was let go.

        • PeppermintButler

          What the hell!? That’s more messed up then! What were they thinking? They’re already lacking female talent on RAW are we gonna see the same girls again and again again?? Ugh!

          • Maddox

            They got lots of talents in NXT

          • PeppermintButler

            F*** they gonna call up the Iconic Duo now, so there’s no chance Peyton winning the NXT women’s title ?

      • ???

        She asked ? Never saw any report saying this in internet at all ..

        • PeppermintButler

          Yeah it seems I was misinformed…

  • OJ Von Erich

    And now Summer Rae has been released…

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ec1961cd4306202a8f4ae7ea0e94b3ff9a64d57d6c531698dc30d943f40793a0.gif

    To be fair, she’s been off TV for over a year while being cleared over the recent months so this isn’t as hard a pill to swallow as Emma’s release.

    Although I know full well Danielle Moinet will walk out of WWE & slide straight into those Guest Star spots on numerous TV shows…

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/524854944fd4336abd656a4e93f19b8e36286337eae6003d374330ce56c55d4e.gif

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Right WWE’s loss not hers she ready to slay these movie TV and modeling roles

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Messy! They had all these Summer fans hoping for a Summer return only for them to crush their dreams with this Summer release. This is so sad. Summer really wanted to return.

    • Mandoceleb

      Lol WWE don’t give a fuck about the fans girl! ?? GET ?? USED ?? TO ?? IT ??

      • jbrizzy

        Lol

  • Instead of coming at other girls, work the magic we did for #GiveSDWomenAChance, and get our hunties rehired.

  • StraightFire

    Welp bye.

    • Mandoceleb

      Becky next

      • Ollie Roche

        Becky won’t be going anywhere lol.

      • StraightFire

        In your dreams maybe.

  • Allyn

    Ugh not summer too!! She was probably over all the fuck shit though I knew something was up when it was rumored that she was told to stay home till wwe called her. Hopefully she finds something else cuz summer has amazing charisma!

  • GEO
    • BC

      this part of the segment saved her career or else she woulda been released too tbh JK

      • MyleneCruz

        They wouldn’t have gotten rid of her cause Vince is still a fan of Dana and her bf just passed that would be bad for business. They’d at least keep her for another year then release her.

    • Kelly_Killer

      I was checking the hastags for Summer and Emma And this good sis got me dead!!!
      https://twitter.com/TheSummerSlay/status/924747812180553730

  • conan_kun

    Her last appearance is on Mae Young Classic final
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DKHj1BKXkAAwkKM.jpg

    • Parasite

      Love how this queen outshines everybody

    • A?.

      Some fan, another fan, a legend, and three other fans.

  • StraightUpBitch

    15 months they kept her on the side. What a waste. Fuck this company

  • BC

    I’m sad because I enjoyed her. She had a lot of personality and charisma IMO. :( She would have been a great heel champion too, eventually.

    Can we all get Summer rehired pls lol

  • Omar Zaal

    She was great at first during NXT.

  • ???

    It’s fucking annoying because today I was thinking “Raw doing good lately but their only flaw is that they didn’t show Summer Rae since MAY ! ”

    And now I read about her release , seriously why they never at least brought her back and see how things will go ?

    WWE will never be great until HHH take over the MR and Vince McMahon retired/leave or whatever.

  • Ollie Roche

    Never liked Emma so i’m more than fine with tht and I forgot Summer even existed lol.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    The way I just hollard and screamed!!! My life is over! They got my boo Emma and my bae Darren wtf! I hate you Vince!

  • Huntrry94

    Well now I’m hungover and sad as hell. Both Emma & Summer are gone. I really did have hope Emma was going somewhere with this feud. It still pisses me off they didn’t just send them BOTH to Smackdown to really refresh their characters.

  • Wow mess on the wwe’s part how do keep her in the sideline for so long and then release her without giving her a push or another chance to wrestle again and improve.

  • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

    Saw this coming… but why Emma too?? Darren young… yes he was boring but this is sad ?

  • Parasite

    I’m not going to cry.. :( ok this hurts me deeply

  • Donny Donny ?

    I’m not surprised, but I wish Summer Rae the best in her future endeavors.

  • Randall

    This isn’t surprising, but my thing is if they didn’t have s wrestling role for her they could have least paired her with someone to manage. I’m sure she will do well with modeling!

  • jbrizzy

    I personally Blame Lana for the downfall of her career. Smh,hopefully her Modeling career goes into overdrive!

  • IconicTrio

    Sucky news, but in a way I’m not sad. Though Summer hasn’t stated herself (don’t shoot me, I don’t have much online presence!) she seems like she’s at peace with not being a WWE girl. And I’m happy for her if she isn’t.

    She had bundles to give though, so I am sad even if she isn’t.

    • Parasite

      Her dream was to be in WWE..
      She really wanted this

      • IconicTrio

        That isn’t fair, I didn’t know that.

  • Dysfunctional

    Summer was part of the original nxt trio of women.Not the best in ring but she had charisma and was really comedic..I low key hoped for a comeback but whatever..

  • Troy Rochester

    Inevitable this was happening she’s not been on TV for quite a while even when she recovered from injury . Again like Emma I think she was wasted potential. I just don’t think they knew how to utilise Summer .

  • The Wicked Bitch

    Dana better not answer her phone

    • Aye Mate

      Howling ?????

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      She better show up on Raw and be like I would like to lower the money for my contract

      • The Wicked Bitch

        Scream let her live. Her salary is already low, if they cut it any shorter it will reach the TNA paycheck level

        • ???

          How much is her salary? I always ask how much..

          • The Wicked Bitch

            U don’t remember the exact number but hers is the lowest out of the Raw women

          • ???

            Say at least something close, not necessary to be the exact number

          • The Wicked Bitch

            90.000 $ I think

  • Summer BAE

    I am so sad – Summer deserved so much better. I hope her and Emma both go on to show WWE how bad they messed up…

  • Kiana Taylor

    What the fuck wwe!!!!! I was waiting on my sis to return and slay my egdes and she gone, i mean i knew it but i was hoping yall had some since to not do it sigh guess not, omg i cannot right now!!!lets not forget emma and darren, 3 TALENTED people wasted for no reason might as well add neville to the list as well, lord i pray liv and aliyah are safe in this bullshit.. im ready to beat vince’s old ass right now https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0fad647e32b6fbb63ab3c0db6ed3fe05ba3201787b9bc917b71d9ea9331fb3f5.gif

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Girl get the guns and rocket launchers ready we bout to go they damn headquarters and they homes and fuck shit up

  • SkilledDeathArtist#1

    My heart hurts. Emma and Summer deserved much more than given. But Summer was in such a weird position to begin with. She was constantly being featured on tv at one point to never being used at all. But both definitely deserved to stay more than Shayna.

  • Victoria&Melina19

    I really thought she would return.

  • MK126

    Damn… well at least they did her justice by giving her new shit for 2k18

  • tstumo

    They knew DAMN well they could’ve given something for Summer to do. She actually cared about the business and was so underutilized. The First Lady Of NXT they could’ve had her do something and treated her much better than how they did. Just really annoyed. She championed for Naomi who finally got her due and she deserved better. Can we please try and make something trend. We need to send a message to them I. Regards to this. It may not cause them to be rehired but they need to know how to treat the talent better

    • jabril

      Wait … u cute lol

    • PeppermintButler

      That’s why they have no problem giving Lacey Evans the title “First Lady” because they were planning to release Summer! F***! I would’ve love to see Summer with Breezango atleast!

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      I’m trying to get #ThankYouSummer to trend right now. WWE did her dirty.

      • Kelly_Killer

        #RehireSummerRae & #RehireEmma dont do the thank you # it means we gave up on them.

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      They gave her several opportunities and she was never able to work it.

      • Kelly_Killer

        When? When Lana’s green a** injured herself and they didnt even got a match for that whole storyline with Ziggler and Rusev or When Layla ghosted and they dropped the Slayers.

        • Slayers were done before Layla took her time off. WWE completely buried them against AJ and Paige just to progress that stupid feud only smarks were into.

          • Kelly_Killer

            Well not necessarily they still couldve done something with them. If i remember corectly they were gunning for Natalya and Rosa.

          • They had potential to be the top girls, they were over with their homoerotic act. But they killed off the edge they had and made them job one too many times to even girls like Emma and Naomi who had nothing going on at the time.

        • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

          She worked as manager for Fandango during his feud with Jericho at a time when both were over with the crowd. Even so, no one ever cared for her. The story with Rusev and Ziggler was rubbish, but even then they were still getting plenty of time. Summer can’t connect with the crowd.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Summer was definitely over when she was with Fandango, even when he wasn’t there and it was just her. And that mixed tag feud was her best performance, especially when she beat the shit out of Ziggler.

          • Kelly_Killer

            KYS

          • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

            U Can’t Deal with the True lol

          • Kelly_Killer

            truth*

  • MyleneCruz

    What’s crazy is I got the news and made a post with said gif on twitter and as many times as I seen it I never caught on that summer rolled her eyes a heel Cameron after their snooches. She truly could have been an iconic heel. WWE continue to waste immense female talent in their division. Sad.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/852efc04519b6afba95e3ec14c094c34faf665c73174e68976176748066ba2f9.gif Sidebar: I’d love if Cameron, Emma, and Summer went to a different show and made a heel faction and destroy the othere’s females. Become a female shield of some sorts.

  • Danny?

    First Emma and now Summer! Summer could have been something special if they had just gave her a chance. They both deserved better in that company yet they keep some women who aren’t half as talented & I ain’t naming no names.

    • MK126

      NAME THOSE NAMES! ???

      • Danny?

        We all know who they are and this post ain’t about that. Before all y’all jump on me I ain’t talking about Alexa Bliss cause I do know she has something to give.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    She obviously done somthing to piss someone off backstage

  • Gato_wiska

    Summer should go to Glow.

  • ???

    I really wanted to see Summer hold a belt , ever since the divas era !

    I wish for her the very best luck ! I wonder what her next job will be ? Will she stick to dancing? I don’t see her continuing to wrestle.

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      Probably modeling or something related to fashion. She’s quite well known in the fashion world and attends a lot of fashion shows.

  • OJ Von Erich

    Dana Brooke saw Mark Carano coming over with those papers, she knew…

    • this made me chuckle

  • IceBaby7

    yet somehow Dana and Lana still are employed :(

    • ZelinaAlmas (CM)

      well they do more than vacation everywhere so..

      • IceBaby7

        Lana popping up on Smackdown for a cameo and nothing else doesnt constitute as a vacation?

    • Dylan Gutierrez

      I doubt Dana will be there much longer unless it is to job or be filler in a match. END was their saving grace and they worked great together.

  • DivaLicious?

    I wasn’t shocked about summer release. I kinda knew they wasn’t planning on using her with the likes of Alexa bliss. In Vince eyes you can only have one blonde on raw that is over in his eyes. Plus with asuka now on raw. She push all away in the back of the line. It’s a shame summer Rae could have been a good mouth piece for an upcoming wrestler. She has great mic skills. Just her ring ability is on kelly Kelly & Maria level. I wish her the best though.

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      She was better than Kelly and Maria in the ring honestly!

  • Number One

    Good riddance to bad rubbish!

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Not shocked. I bet she was ready for it and let’s be real, she wasn’t all that. She could have been a solid manager but that’s about it tbh. Her release isn’t a travesty unlike in Emma’s case (UGH!!!)…

    Either ways, she seems to be doing good on her own so I wish her the best in all her future endeavors.

  • Womensor

    Only Paige left from the original NXT Divas. I hope WWE don’t realese her too. I think there are a lot of girls, they need a new tv show for women or something or many more women will be out. You have a lot of women from the MYC, some women in NXT that will soon make their MR debuts… They should do something, more tv time for women or a new show like 205 live.

    • Dylan Gutierrez

      I never understood the whole thing about a separate show for the women. The Cruiserweight division has a tough time being taken seriously due to being its own thing and their matches on RAW are similar to the dark days of Divas Division where no one cared and were a bathroom break.

      Sure a show would guarantee more time and room for the women but to be placed on a PPV card with people having to watch exclusively to know what’s going on and being dumbfounded when they appear on RAW in a throwaway match. It won’t help and as women have always been seen as a side act by the GP sexist men, separating them only furthers that idea and gives the RAW men all three hours. It shouldn’t be that way.

  • Wicked Bliss

    I admit I see these releases coming. With a lot of girls coming, they need to release some.

  • Damn!

    I feel like Summer already knew it was her time cause she was medically cleared months ago but WWE didn’t have any ideas for her and I’m really sad that they didn’t let her show her full potential

    Emma’s release was the one that shocked me the most cause she worked so hard to save what was left of her character after they butchered her serious Evil Emma gimmick and turned it into a delusional social media chick. She had lots of potential that WWE never saw </3
    Goodbye OG NXT girls

    • Mark?

      Saved what? What needed saving about her heel gimmick? She had no gimmick… She just thought she was a heel because she wore dark lipstick and football shoulder pads looking like a mess. Emma is an amazing wrestler but offered nothing else. They gave her so many chances to get over and she never did. Dancing gimmick which didn’t translate well to the main roster, heel gimmick which she didn’t deliver, then they tried to make her the socialite girl which she sucked so bad at apparently they just turned her back heel.

  • Jamal

    What a waste of a talent. She was decent in the ring but always great with character stuff, which many of the women struggle with. Shame to see her go but hopefully she will go where her talents are better utilized

  • Damn!
    • The Wicked Bitch

      Nnnn Dana learning from Rosa

      • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

        She taught Dana that trick she was like girl if you get a call outta nowhere it means they firing yo ass don’t pick up and the next night go in and act like your having a mental breakdown

    • Carolution

      Alicia’s contract is auto-renewed until she wants to leave so i’d say foxy is safe.

  • iloveTorrie

    A damn waste of talent right here! I really am gonna miss my boo summer all they had to do was bring her to SD and I believe she would’ve been fine. Can’t say I’m not too surprised tho since she hadn’t been seen in over a year. Now Emma on the other hand, THAT WAS A SHOCK!

  • Cilla

    Could’ve been utilised well on SmackDown.

  • John Finnie

    More releases coming soon…house cleaning…. i see dana maybe Carmella after her cash in Lana Rusev….. foxy & tamina will leave on their own since they are vets Natalya may have got this title at the eighth hour or she would have been on that list.
    Now im gonna need Nia Jax get released

    • conan_kun

      Why does they gonna release Carmella when WWE officials are very high on her and her man Big Cass.

  • Kvngbalor

    Smfh never complained took every thing they gave her and ran with it she got Fandango over she was the saving grace for that Dolph Lana Rusev storyline which Lana sabotaged she was made to look like a whore and vilian on TD when in reality she’s loved and respected by the girls she was a blonde who wanted to work wanted to bump always had ideas always pitching she’ll be missed

  • Mike

    It really irks me that WWE has such talented performers and for some reason, it’s a challenge for them to use them in any way possible. But yet they’ll throw someone like Brock Lesnar out there “whenever he feels like showing up” – a man who has zero charisma IMO, and who is, for me (and possibly many others) pretty boring to watch in the ring. Character-wise, Summer Rae was always flawless. And she was good enough in the ring to hold a decent match too.

    I’d sooner see Bayley on the hit list if we’re talking about female talents. She’s also exceptionally dull in the ring and character-wise. Summer Rae just had so much potential and talent to offer up to the WWE and they did nothing but squander that time and time again.

    • Super Mateo

      WWE rules don’t apply to Lesnar. He gets caught doping by other agencies, WWE turns a blind eye to it while suspending Reigns, Eva Marie, and Paige. He can work four shows a year, that’s fine. Anyone else would get Summer’s fate. He’s got no charisma. He uses the same move 15 times a match. I have to turn WWE off anytime he shows up. I can’t stand him.

      • ThePeaceVibe.

        I can’t stand him either. If my bf or friends ever watch with me they are confused why he’s treated like such a big deal. His matches are snooze fests imo.

  • Kvngbalor

    Won’t even get started on how they milked Darren Young Coming out and being gay for LGBT support and good press

  • Oh my god! Anpother one? Jesus christ! This bunch of releases scares me, hope Paige isn’t next on the line. WWE have delete their pioneers of the NXT women’s division, shame that them never used Summer Rae well; great talent, mic skills of a godess and perfect hell
    Manerisms.

  • Exotic

    Probably the worst news this year for me personally. I’m just distressed that they didn’t even allow her to return back. Anyway, I know Summer got shit load of projects, so your loss WWE.

  • Exotic

    FUCK YOU WWE, UGH IM DEPRESSED

  • Exotic
  • HOLLA

    So damn disappointed.

    I PRAY TO GOD THIS IS A STORYLINE AND THEY JUST MOVE THEM TO SDL. WHY IM CRYING AND IM FURIOUS AND IM CONFUSED AF.

  • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

    IF IT WASNT FOR SUMMER THERE WERENT GONNA BE NO HORSE WOMEN, NO REVOLUTION, NO SH!7 SHE WAS THE HEEL THAT MADE ALL 4 OF THEM

  • -V

    Too bad for all the in-ring improvement & slaying outfits she had…

  • A?.

    Summer was very underrated as well, people never took her seriously. She was a STAR down at NXT, she had everything to be a top star in the MR, but they wasted her as a dancer and a jobber. Sure, she wasn’t the best in the ring, but her charisma and mic skills were amazing and she slayed every role she was given. A shame.

  • Super Mateo

    This is sad. Summer just took the fall for the writers’ incompetence. Good writers can take any character they’re given and come up with a story for them. There were plenty of stories they could have used for Summer, and no one came up with anything. The women’s division was already thin to begin with, and never using Summer didn’t help. There are plenty of men wasting money and screen time in WWE…they should have been clearing them out instead.

  • Wow sad news but tbf wwe never used either of them properly

  • Winter Fresh

    What a shame! So much potential for Summer!

    They could’ve gave Summer a ghost gimmick and paired her with Alexa which only Alexa could see, like Winter & Angelina in TNA.

  • Rhys Hawks

    Copy and past from the Emma article.

    I see this being like the whole Neville case. She will be much happier outside of WWE, same with Emma. I’m sure Impact or even ROH will try to pick her up when the time is right, Emma I mean. I don’t see Summer going anywhere else honestly.

  • Tunasha

    Contrary to Emma’s release, this wasn’t as shocking, but still it came out of nowhere! It’s a shame they never used her mic skills in an important storyline or role… Now, I don’t see Summer sticking to wrestling, I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure she will have many open doors, wish her the best.

    With these 2 releases, honestly, no one is safe, It’s been a while since they released a main roster girl out of nowhere. Last one was Cameron I guess.

    • Summer_Slay #Justice4SummerRae

      Eva was after Cam

  • Summer_Slay #Justice4SummerRae

    My day is ruined. This is the biggest BS they couldve done. They keep Paige (scandals, drugs, bad reputation), Nia (walked out from TV) , Tamina (The woman that hasnt done anything in her 7 years career) and Lana (Eva Marie 2.0) over them and keep on hiring new girls for NXT but they do Summer and Emma like that. They are the sole reason (along with Paige) that there was a revolution to begin with. This just shows how fake the entire thing is. A slap to the face for all womens wrestling fans. Probably the 2 most underutilized, underrated and undeserved women to be released. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9cb11a9675da95618d6d1e113dc16edd28883eb2a6492d4e58c4fe465841e745.jpg

    • AngelBlissRae

      Let’s not bring the other girls down. Plus Summer and Emma are great friends with Paige.

      • Summer_Slay #Justice4SummerRae

        I know i just retweeted what both paige and sasha tweeted about them but let this not distract you from the fact that all im saying is truth.

    • Paige has her movie, Tamina and Nia are protected by The Rock and Lana is protected by TD. It is how it is. Emma and Summer didn’t deserve it at all, they should’ve at least sent them to SD.

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        Lana really isn’t all that protected. Look at Nia rn.

        • She’s on Total Divas which means she won’t be released while on it. Doesn’t mean she will be pushed on TV.

    • Exotic

      I agree, but Tamina isn’t a threat to no one, its understandable why Nia walked out (if rumors are true – which I doubt) and Lana does seem passionate about learning how to wrestle.
      Paige on the otherhand, ugh she only NXT OG standing, so release this bitch too before her name is LOCKED on my shitlist.

      • John Finnie

        Nia is crap from facial exp to her 3 moves & 1 big ppv move Tamina is better she has that mean girl expression like she wants to cause pain; Nia smiles; Taminas moves a hard hitting with injurying somone (soz Nikki) Nia where to start Sasah Charlotte Bayley Foxy & Mj

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      ?

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      Tamina never did anything because they never gave her anything to do. In fact she was AJ’s bodyguard and this worked very well.

      • Summer_Slay #Justice4SummerRae

        keep dreaming

        • John Finnie

          Keep dreaming if you think Tamina will get let go like…..
          Shes 39 2 kids a inlaw to the rock.
          She was out twice for over a year each, her dad just died ( bad puplicity a single mother of 2 who lost ledgend father gets fired)
          She has a year or 2 left exspe if wwe are trying to say older women can hang with younger women.
          Unless she gets hurt expect 1 title reign b4 she leaves boo?

          • Summer_Slay

            omg the tamina stans so moronic

          • John Finnie

            Summer_slay hunni at least my stan is still around & Her age didnt stop her getting back on tv
            … unlike your favs

          • Summer_Slay

            hunny my fave isnt rocks lap dog and my fave made maxim top 100 good luck with that tina

          • John Finnie

            My fave was was lita & trish who both along with debra & chyna were on FHM cover.
            Both have dvds books etc etc & thats B4 social media
            They took their chance & made it work in the wwe.
            Oh ilike summer i hated the way they treated her so i do like the underdogs…& tina was in 2 ladder matches & was the vip in both…..

      • Kelly_Killer

        Did they let summer and emma do anything ? I think tf not.

        • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

          Yes, they did

          • John Finnie

            He was agreeing with you ?

    • Kelly_Killer

      THIS ^ + TWEET #RehireSummerRae & #RehireEmma. Please we can do it. We did it once for mania.

  • AngelBlissRae

    I took a nap, just to see if this was all just a bad dream, but unfortunately it wasn’t. It’s reality. Emma & Summer Rae are gone and WWE has made an enormous mistake in letting them go.

  • Mark?

    Don’t care about Emma but SUMMER? And my sexy gay Darren Young? Brb I seriously need to cry. And poor Summer. She had so much potential, she was so under-utilized, her mic skills were incredible… I am so sad about this.

  • Nathan

    Summer didn’t even need a wrestling role, she has been a good manager, they could have paired her with someone again, or even made her gm of the women’s devision or something. That would have suited her perfectly! Gutted about all of theese releases!

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      good manager for who?

      • KatyaMenelli

        Fandango, Tyler Breeze

        • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

          She never did nothing for them

          • KatyaMenelli

            I said for herself. Pay attention.

  • Nathan

    R-Truth, Sin Cara, Tamina, just to name a few are people I’d much rather have seen released.

    • Carolution

      tamina is being used while summer hasn’t been seen in like almost 2 years.

      • Nathan

        But I think most people would rather see summer or even Emma over tamina. No charism, struggles to make it through matches, she’s been like it for years…

        • Carolution

          summer can’t even wrestle. emma on the other-hand shouldn’t have been released but shes obviously not liked backstage.

          • Nathan

            I never said she could, she’s not exactly bad in the ring though, and I’m sure the majority of fans would rather see summer over the likes of the people stated above…

          • Carolution

            summer never looked comfortable wrestling though while tamina can at least do it. emma should have never been fired since she has everything needed to succeed

          • Nathan

            Someone who was not comfortable wrestling was Eva. Summer was more so than her. Tamina is very sub par, and it doesn’t change the fact that Summer was more charismatic than her and more enjoyable to watch overall.

      • Robann

        Emma was also being used and got released….so what’s the point?

        • Carolution

          she wasn’t liked by vince though so thats why.

  • Gayomi.

    release Lacey Evans and Ruby Riot sick of looking at them

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      No tf

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      Release urself from this world ?

      • Fuck off tiki torch bearing redneck rat.

  • LaurenYorkStan

    6 years……… all my 2011-2013 fcw/ nxt memories ??

  • Carolution

    well she was never a good wrestler and should have been a manager. i thought she was already released to be honest.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      please shut up to be honest your comment was not needed

      • Carolution

        f**k off out of my replies. you dont own this thread and you dont get to tell me ish.

        • LaurenYorkStan

          BITCH…..You know what….just shut the fuck up

    • Summer_Slay #Justice4SummerRae

      she was never a good wrestler she was an amazing wrestler, full package

      • Carolution

        no

  • LaurenYorkStan
  • I honestly saw this coming which is a shame. She regressed in ring after having been used as a valet her entire career. She definitely had more talent and charisma than alot of the girls on the roster. They should be utilized her better. The original NXT girls are gone now…Paige will likely be released after that biopic. It’s a sad day.

    • Marshy

      Well after the WWE releases Paige that she will joining her man Alberto Del Rio/Patron in Impact Wrestling.

  • ILoveMelina(Real ILM)Yiorgos

    OMF SYLVIA BOO WHERE YOU AT?? GET BACK ON TWITTA

  • OJ Von Erich

    Summer Rae shoot interview…

    https://youtu.be/dXzBfT2dtX8

  • MinervaCoretex

    I wish my conspiracy theory was correct. HEAR ME OUT HEAUXS!
    What if the releases are work? The true Beginners of the Divas Revolution (plus Paige), attacking the Four Horsewomen in an unexpected beatdown.
    A motha fu**a can dream, right?

    • KingsPromise

      That would be lit af, but I doubt it sadly.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Come on now…. WWE ain’t that smart

  • wwepassion

    Such a talented woman who didn’t get used to her full potential. She had it in her but of course WWE only gives certain people a real chance. Sad.

  • Kyle

    SO they are definitely going to burn Rusev and Lana… Tamina didn’t do the work that Emma did imo, but she gets to stay. I get it with the family thing, but wow.

  • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

    One of the worst talents of all time. Totally overrated because she’s blonde and had a mean girl gimmick.
    She had nothing to offer the product. It never made any difference, it would never do and we will never miss it.

    • Michael Max

      That’s a little harsh lol

      • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

        Sometimes you have to be harsh to make people understand the truth.

        • Michael Max

          But she also lost her job, so her fans are saddened. I’m not agreeing nor disagreeing with you, but I def. saw potential in Summer, but it was never really realized and she didn’t quite transition too well when we left the diva era and the competition got a lot tougher.

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      This is harshly true

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      I swear I can’t with haters who only say she’s one of the worst then can’t explain why and don’t give me no bullshit about she can’t wrestle because she’s average just like Alexa so

    • KatyaMenelli

      Why do you keep saying this we word like you’re GOD or some shit?

  • its a shame summer is now released she could have had a great career but was sadly lost in the shuffle plus i think she was suffering from neck problems

  • ?K . A . T ?

    Even though I saw this coming it’s still such a waste, she had so much potential.

  • FiguredRetro

    Wow what a shame. Terrible shame. Honestly so sad because she was imo for comparison reasons, a modern day Ivory who had incredible potential. Was looking forward to her return

    • MirMik

      Modern day Ivory? What are you smoking? I want some.

      • FiguredRetro

        Mic work. Summer Rae IMO is great on the mic

    • KatyaMenelli

      OMG, You’re right tbh pertaining Mic Work. They delivered promos very similar.

  • Kelly_Killer

    SHE HAD IT ALL THEY NEVER GAVE HER A CHANCE IF ALEXA CAN BE A 4 TIME CHAMPION SO COULD SUMMER. TWEET #RehireSummerRae & #RehireEmma

  • #VindictiveBitch ?
  • LBOneOfKind

    Interesting seen on twitter / dirtsheets Summer Rae teased coming to IMPACT Wrestling soon

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Wow damn that sucks summer was one of my underrated favs. Really thought she would finally get something out of her getting in maxim and on the hot 100.

  • Scorp ian

    Sadly WWE increasingly seems in the business of undermining and squandering their talent, in the wake of the ‘Revolution’ only really Charlotte, Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax have been given any support and even in the case of 2 out of those three it has not been consistent. Very Sad but hopefully Summer and Emma can look forward to being ‘in demand’ for a while – they genuinely deserve it!

  • Scarlet Letter

    To me, Summer didn’t do much in the WWE, and it was really only a matter of time before the released her.

    Now for Emma to be released, I’m disappointment because she had so much potential, especially being on of the first NXT women to come up to the main roster, she had the battle field layed out to her and I think WWE just ruined it. I don’t think WWE should had done any releases at least until after the PPV.

    I don’t feel like WWE is done with releasing talent from WWE, I feel there will be more. I’m still shocked WWE still had Alicia Fox, but with her being the Captain of the Raw Women’s division, this should be interesting where it plays off, and if they play it right they could rebuild her back up to maybe the title picture (I honestly think in the next Superstar Shake-up, she needs to be put on SD, she’d do a lot better there, I could also see her winning the SD Women’s title too.)
    It’s only a matter of time before Paige gets released, even though they’re teasing for a return, I don’t see it being as great as we would like it to be and I feel like they’re gonna miss the window of opportunity to have her return and they’ll just release her cause they can’t fit her in.
