WWE came to terms on the release of Summer and Emma as of the end of October. I’m always sad to see any of the ladies leave. I get to know them and their style and watch them grow and it feels like my sister is leaving for college. I can always keep in touch, but it’s not the same. Summer’s release is the less surprising of the two, as she has not been on tv for nearly a year, due to injury. I loved her classy Instagram comment following the event:
“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.”
Like many people, I tend to assume that every girl’s goal is hold the title, but when you think about what it takes to even make it on to the roster –all the years of training, the travel, the stress on your body, the discipline, maintaining the fitness level – it becomes clear that just becoming a Diva is a significant achievement. Summer’s thoughts put it in perspective beautifully and I’m so happy that she reached her goal. I will, however, miss her fashion muchly. Her NY Fashion Week looks in particular stand out for me as complete killage. So, I fervently hope something fashion-related is in her future!
Emma (Tenille Dashwood) was also upbeat after initially posting a broken heart emoji, saying
“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!”
Her release was very unexpected, as she had recently begun a feud with Asuka. Her various fashion evolutions – from bouncy Aussie to dark attitude to Emmalina – were always intriguing and a sign that reinventing herself is something that she’s quite comfortable with, which should stand her in good stead for the future. We wish both her and Summer the very best for whatever direction the future takes them in!
