Report: WWE Nixed Emmalina Because Emma Wasn't Committed To Role

After 17 weeks of vignettes, we saw the re-debut of Emmalina on Raw....who apparently is going right back to being simply "Emma."

According to a report from Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, WWE had plans for Emmalina to draw comparisons to Sable, The Kat and Sunny, but kept pushing the debut back because officials thought she wasn't committed enough for the gimmick. The decision was apparently made to simply allow Emma to resume her previous gimmick.
