Since the news both Emma and Summer have taken to social media to thank their fans for the outpouring of love and support and to reflect on what being a Superstar has meant to them.
When the news hit, Emma responded with a broken heart that has since received over seven thousand responses of support:

After the initial heartache, she followed up by thanking everyone for the overwhelming response:
I feel very fortunate to have the most amazing family, friends and fans in the world! I am excited for the future. The best is yet to come!

Unfortunately since then, this week it’s rumored by Sports Illustrated that Emma was released because, “Emma created just enough enemies on the writing staff, which she exacerbated from the way she voiced her opinion on Twitter. The doors remain open for a return, but her exit from the company is viewed by some as addition by subtraction in the locker room.”
Summer took to Instagram to reflect on accomplishing her dream of becoming a WWE Diva and remains optimistic about the future:
They say you'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Well that wasn't true in this situation. I knew the value of this moment, I knew the magnitude of this moment. I hear some of you say "but you didn't become champ", "you didn't get the push you deserved", "you didn't get a title run". But see, I got MY title. I became a WWE Diva. ———- In this picture above, my in ring debut on TV, I knew the value of that moment. In that moment I became a WWE Diva. I could take a small, very small breath of relief because I did it! For so many years I dreamt of stepping onto that main stage of Monday Night Raw & then getting into that ring with these strong, beautiful, smart & courageous women. I wanted to be one of them. I knew I could be one of them! I felt it SO deep down in my heart. Once it happened I of course set more goals for myself within the company & trained harder to reach them. But the people that flood my comments with these things that I 'should have' gotten — you guys are missing the overall dream that I achieved. That I went to Monday Night RAW as a fan & sat in the crowd & watched the girls & wanted that more than anything I had ever felt in my body ever before. Then, I did it. I did it. 😊 I've wrestled in over 15 countries on 4 continents & made friends in fans all over the world. I have had the opportunity to live out my dream! And that is because God blessed me with obtaining my dream through hard work & determination. So please don't fight with one another about me & start boards about Justice for Summer Rae. Know that I DID IT! I am a WWE Diva, a WWE Superstar. And no one will ever be able to take that away from me! ❤️
Everyone at Diva Dirt wishes both women the best of luck and looks forward to seeing what comes next!
