The former SHIMMER wrestler wrote on Twitter: “You may now call me…. EMMA!! New ring name – check! Let’s get this show on the road ;) Ready or not here I come #WWE #NXT #DIVA”

Thoughts: Did someone in WWE watch the Spice Girls at the Olympics closing ceremony last night? There is a resemblance between Tenille and Baby Spice, Emma Bunton.

    That’s really a nice name! I hope she has a last name.

  • Dave Muscarella

    Oh man, wait til Sara Del Rey gets there. She would LOVE getting a Spice Girl name. Just call her Posh.

  • TehKardashianKing

    Emma? REALLY? Who in the freaking hell comes up with these ring names?

    Skyler Moon > Emma > Charlotte

    ‘Nuff said.

    Let’s just hope that Tenille… I mean… ahem… Emma gets a chance on NXT.

      They come up with their own ring names. Unless WWE/FCW don’t like the name you’ve came up with.

      • WhalenX12

        I think Buggy should have kept it. Buggy is such a nice name. For a diva like her xD

        • Kayfabe!

          fun fact Buggy used the ring name “Donna Dead” once how do y’all like that name? Lol

    They really need to start picking last names.

  • redsandman99

    I don’t mind it though I wish they would start handing out some last names. Beth Phoenix is the only diva that’s had a consistantly used last name through her whole career.

    • shokko22

      Michelle McCool?
      Mickie James?
      Stacy Keibler?
      Torrie Wilson?
      The list goes on

      • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

        Don’t forget Trish Stratus and Stephanie McMahon!

    • http://cruelartist.tumblr.com Shannel

      Alicia Fox, Christy Hemme, Gail Kim, Tamina Snuka, Aj Lee… so on..

      • Kayfabe!

        Kelly Kelly, Ece Torres, Jillian Hall, Lena Yada, Candice Michelle

        • Kayfabe!

          Meant Eve lol

        • redsandman99

          I meant current divas roster. AJ lost hers and got hers back for the time being. Has Eve’s been used lately? I don’t even remember. Alicia’s is I forgot about that though she’s been AWOL lately for the most part. Natalya and Tamina have theirs referenced though generally they get billed as just their first names.

        • Like Mike

          AWOL? The entire division has been AWOL lol

        • redsandman99

          Too true. Though I felt like I haven’t seen her even longer than I’ve seen everyone else.

  • Dave Muscarella

    The name doesn’t mean anything. The talent of the person using the name will overcome anything. Who thought “Lita” would become a classic name. I bet at the time a lot of people said it was a dumb name too.

    If the woman is good enough, it doesn’t matter WHAT they call her.

    • Kayfabe!

      Lita doesn’t sounds different to me, but I get what you are saying. People hated the name Kharma, Tara, Winter and Paige, but now it just fits, personality has a lot to do with it

      • Kayfabe!

        meant does dang phone lol

    • redsandman99

      Good point. There’s always a period of adjustment when it comes to the names. By the time she starts wrestling on like NXT or whatever most of us will be over the name thing.

  • Kayfabe!

    Sounds bland “Making her way to the ring, please welcome… Emma!” “From Charlotte North Carolina, Charlotte!?” “and her opponent from the moon, Skylar Moon!” lol

    • WWFoverWWE

      LOL wow

  • WWFoverWWE

    At least give her a last name -_-

  • Rhawk

    Sounds a bit bland, but I’m sure she’ll make it into something. Maybe a last name would help though, possibly Frost? Oh wait-

    • Kayfabe!


      • Kayfabe!

        they will probably give her the last name Kangaroo or something like that lol

        • Addy

          Making her way from the Austrailian Outbacks, please welcome EMMA KANGAROOOOOO!

        • redsandman99

          The sad thing is, I wouldn’t really put it past them. I mean, they once wanted to call Steve Austin Chilly McFreeze.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          LAWLS emma kangaroo for the win…

        • jamie1

          No that sounds aweful.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/dsanchez96?feature=mhum sanchezdiego96

    I hope they give her a last name. Its hard to google people with just a first name. And I hate having to google “wwe _____” cause I just get a bunch of random pictures.

  • iLUVValets

    There is a reason why we call them the uncreative, how are supposed to care about these girls when their names make them out to be a basic b*tch

  • http://twitter.com/jeremysalvatico jeremycanrana

    most of the girls receive really generic names … maybe they could give her a cool last name … I don’t have anything in my right now but I don’t know

  • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

    I’m hoping that they give these girls better names somewhere down the line like really hoping they do that.

  • redsandman99

    Maybe WWE exhausted their creative names when they turned Buggy Nova into Skyler Moon?

  • LoveIt

    Tenille Tayla was much better,
    but Emma is ok…

  • Marlon Eric

    Jesus Christ. They really aren’t trying to make stars are they? Can they atleast give her a cooler last name? Emma Winter? Emma Crabtree? Something else?

    Think of the majority of the stars. Cher is fucking Cher, not Jane. Beyonce wasn’t named Caryn. Geez Louise. – I hope to God they don’t pick Louise either..

    • Kessuki

      urgh no thanks to ‘crabtree’, reminds me of my nose picking primary school teacher. ha!!


    wow fcw must be going on a naming spree!

    anyways i dont like the name emma. never have. if they were going to have her first name emma, they could atleast give her a last name so it wouldn’t be so plain.

  • DarknessRuler

    They should have gone Bryan Danielson on her and just given her Tayla Tenille

    • WWFoverWWE

      The women don’t get the same treatment as the men.

      • redsandman99

        A lot of the men get just as generic and random names as the women do. There’s just a less of a last name issue these days.

    • Kayfabe!

      i actually Tayla Tenille Or just Tenille!

  • shokko22

    It’s not the name that makes the diva. It’s the diva that makes the name.

  • AfroJack

    I prefer Tenille but ok.

  • AfroJack

    Why are people complaining about last names?

    Lita, Tori, Sable, Terri, Jacqueline, Ivory, Jazz, Francine, Trinity, Ariel, Victoria, Melina, Aksana, Kaitlyn, Cherry, Maria, Maryse, Chyna and Layla never had billed last names. Don’t see why everyone needs a last name, if all Divas had a last name you’d still complain. No pleasing.

    If TNA did it I’m sure people would be fine with that, as usual

  • mckenzie

    I prefer something more exotic. Like Heidi or Anabella

  • shameronstar

    First Paige now Emma! Who ever is giving out these diva names must be a fan of Degrassi!
