The dancing gimmick was fine in my opinion, it just wasn't used right in WWE. She should dance but still be booked as a competent wrestler. And let her show a serious side at times like they've done with Bayley in NXT.

Matches like the one recently against Summer Rae on Superstars are fine. Dancing during her entrance and a quick dance before she executes a move is entertaining to me.

They just made her look like an incompetent dancing buffoon on the main roster sometimes. I think in one of her matches with Paige on superstars she was dancing during the match and then just gets kicked in the face. That's not how it should be done. I'm pretty sure something like that never happened in their competitive NXT matches.

Another problem is the lack of promos/backstage segments which hasn't happened since she was with Santino. This is a problem with the rest of the division as well. To get her character more over with casuals you have to let her show her personality and how she interacts with other divas. On NXT she had backstage segments with Summer Rae, Paige, and Renee and they were fucking hilarious.

If she changes her gimmick then fine, since they weren't doing anything with her anyway, but they never used it to its full potential. An odd-couple tag team with Emma and Paige was the most wasted opportunity. Those Instagram videos they made last year were gold.

The saddest part about the gimmick change is that the GOAT entrance theme will be no more :mj2

A redemption storyline in NXT could be good though. With Charlotte expected to be called up soon this leaves a spot in the title scene. Alexa and Carmella are still too green to get involved so hopefully this is why she's back in NXT.

Lets hope this wasn`t "one night only" appearance. Returning in NXT is best for Emma, she isn`t doing anything on the main roster. This can only help her career, damn, NXT return made wonders for the forgotten Tyson Kidd.

I have an idea in my mind. If Bayley gets the title at the next live special they can easily make her feud with Emma. Emma is jelaous by the success of her former friend, Bayley, and after showing more and more agressive side week by week, she finally attacks Bayley and beats her down. Than it`s easy, she is a heel and the storyline writes itself. Let them have a match at the next Takeover, where Bayley retains the Chmpionship after great 15 minut match. This scenario will help both of them.

I feel my first post in this forum should be something good, so here is my favourite pic of Emma...

Great find. (Y) She looks amazing here.

Excellent post, and I agree with all of it.

I'm a huge fan of Emma but that hasn't blinded me from the truth. Her gimmick bombed on the main roster, and she was doomed from the start with the way she was brought up. To casual fans who only watch Raw she was probably just some blonde diva who may not have been all there, waving her arms around. She had literally no character development at all. No backstory, no introduction or any of that. Like, she started as a heel in NXT and her gimmick was just a mean heel diva who thought she was a great dancer, right? That was maybe mentioned once on Raw by Cole in between burying the match and making outdated pop culture references. One of the first times she was shown in the crowd they said she was from Rhode Island or some shit. That right there was the first sign they didn't give a fuck about her lol. Unfortunately she was one of the people called up in a disastrous wave of call-ups (has it even ended yet?)

Anyway, I genuinenly hope she goes back to NXT. If she stays on the main roster she'll be jobbing for the rest of her WWE career which would've probably lasted until the end of this year. I love her gimmick and everything about her, but it was clear it wasn't working. So I'd be in favor of her getting a different gimmick. As said earlier in this thread, there were some heel vibes from Emma after her match with Carmella. It'd be good for her to turn heel, get a more physical style/gimmick and leave the cute/bubbly personality behind because it's only holding her back right now.

I'm glad they acknowledged on commentary that Emma hasn't had the success she wanted. They're not taking the route where they pretend her main roster stint never happened, or that it was a success but she wanted to return to NXT. A redemption storyline sounds good. If Charlotte indeed gets called up soon that would definitely open up a spot for Emma. I'm excited to see where she goes from here. I have a lot more faith in Triple H and co. to use her correctly than I do with Vince. Hopefully she won't just be used to elevate Carmella and Sasha Banks, she needs a genuine run in NXT to re-establish her and to get her ready to get called up again. To be honest I would have no problem seeing her in NXT for the rest of 2015.

I will miss her entrance and entrance music too though. :mj2 And I'll have to change my sig and avi. :mj2

Just checked out this shoot. Amazing. :banderas She looks a little different lately, not sure what it is (maybe the hair idk), all's I know is that's she's even hotter now. :D

I agree! I hope it's part of the beginning of her being taken seriously.

And maybe... a heel turn :)

Definitely one of the most beautiful underrated and utilized divas on the roster

It's really hard to not to like Emma

Plus after seeing her on the wwe network commenting on shows such as countdown great personality , great sense of humor , and an extremely adorable accent

Overall a great diva

It might be good though if she loses her dancing gimmick , we all saw what happened to Jillian with her singing gimmick

And like they say history repeats itself

Thanks for posting, she has way too much make up on in that picture though haha.

Anyway, I completely forgot about this thread. Here's a couple pics from one of the best WWE shoots. It happens to have my 2 favorite WWE Divas together in the same pics, and they both look stunning. :lenny





Not sure if I posted those here already, but who cares. :p

I personally think that as long as the people on the main roster want to really give her a chance, her gimmick won't be a problem. Her NXT character is so much more complex than just the dancing.

Just sucks how seriously underrated she is, she's someone I need to see at the top of the division.

And to keep up
