Former WWE superstar Emma, real name Tenille Dashwood, 29, Australian wrestler who joined WWE in 2011 to 2017 shared her life after WWE and how she is doing in her wrestling career with Illawarra Mercury.
“Q: Did Emma enjoy her time in the WWE?
A: Awesome … I’ve probably been busier than I was before. It’s been a really fun journey so far, and I feel energized and alive again for my career with wrestling.
Q: What was it like working for WWE from 2011 to 2017?
A: Wrestling for WWE has definitely helped me a lot to get me to this platform where I’m able to do that, to be as busy as I am and travel the world. I’m very lucky to have that, and lucky to have the fan-base I have. But wrestling is very popular again right now. The talent that’s out there, and the production that the independent companies are putting into their shows is just bringing more and more fans in worldwide. So I think as a whole we’re all putting in that effort, and bringing a better product for the fans worldwide.”
Emma left WWE after WWE promoted Emma’s new character on the main roster RAW for weeks, then they dropped the idea. I never thought that Emma would leave WWE after facing Asuka on 23 October episode of Raw, and it was her final match in the WWE.
“Q: How she feels about being involved in modern women wrestling?
A: It’s taken a long time to get there, but women’s wrestling is really having a boom right now. It’s everything – it’s the production of the shows, it’s having opportunities for the women, and the women delivering on those opportunities.
I’ve been fortunate enough to main event a number of the shows that I’ve been on since I started the independents at the beginning of this year.
That’s a huge opportunity for me, and somewhere I can showcase just how much I love wrestling, and how fortunate I am to be in this position.”
