Last year Emma was sidelined due to an injury, and while she was out of action WWE developed a new gimmick for her to use upon her return. In the fall of 2016, WWE began airing vignettes for the debut of Emmalina, which was supposed to be a new version of Emma who seemed to be much more focused on her looks than her in ring ability.

The debut became one of the biggest running jokes in all of professional wrestling, as the “coming soon” vignettes aired for months and months and months. Every once in a while one of the vignettes would advertise Emmalina’s debut on Raw for the following week, and then she wouldn’t show up.

It was like a running joke that fans grew tired of because the company kept teasing the debut for so long, and just when people couldn’t have cared any less Emmalina finally arrived on Raw.

After months of anticipation, Emmalina made her way to the stage and cut a promo declaring that she had trolled us all, and she planned to transform back into Emma.

It was a whole lot of waiting for a whole lot of nothing, and although we’ve seen quite a few Emma matches over the years, we never did get to see Emmalina in the ring.

Luckily a photo of Emmalina’s ring gear has surfaced online, and now we know what the character would have looked like when she was in action.


Although things didn’t work out the first time around, it seems that company officials are trying to recreate the gimmick with Lana who is set to join the SmackDown women’s division at some point in the future, so it should be interesting to see how that works out.


  1. Look at that woman. When i came back to the states, i tried so hard to explain how sexy and free spirited, Australian women are. Only my Navy brothers understand.

      • Hmm. All that I have met in Queensland seemed to be pretty easy and/or loved Americans. (Not that they all had sex with me, but they were very open and flirty) Maybe because I was there as a Black, American, Sailor. That might have had something to do with it lol. I didnt meet any frigid women. Very friendly, and they love to hear your accent. Which was weird to me at the time.

        • Haha well I’m very happy you had such a high success rate, maybe the fact that I’m a white, English guy worked against me! To be honest though, the majority of people in general were pretty friendly, I’ve found that in most of the countries I’ve visited to be honest, apart from France and certain parts of Spain!

          • Hey bro, they were loving the white guys too. If you’re American period, you can get laid. You should hear them talk about how much they are tired of their local men.

          • Yeah man you’re definitely right about the last bit, ‘alcoholic morons’ is a description I heard once or twice!
