WWE Releases Then Reinstates Diva Following Shoplifting Arrest At Walmart

Not sure what would make an employee of the WWE do this, but it happened.

WWE Diva Emma was released from the company. That’s not out of the ordinary despite her being recently brought up to the main roster after a stint on the company’s development show NXT. But she wasn’t dropped because her character had grown stale (even though it has), Emma — born Tenille Dashwood of Australia — got her walking papers after she was caught shoplifting.

Oh, and she wasn’t shoplifting at Barney’s. It wasn’t even Nordstrom’s. Emma was arrested for shoplifting at Walmart.


The 25-year-old was caught by a security guard in a Hartford, CT Walmart attempting to walk out with a red iHome ‘Slim Swivel’ iPad. Meanwhile, WWE Raw was taking place at the XL Center not too far from where the crime took place. She was charged with misdemeanor larceny in the 6th degree and was sentenced to one day of community service.

TMZ reports that Emma’s lawyer said that it was “a simple mistake” and she simply forgot to pay while trying to navigate the self-checkout. Right…

Once the WWE caught wind, they wasted no time in “future endeavoring” her. However, the company doubled back and decided to hire her back. Obviously, the change of heart will likely come with some kind of punishment for the ridiculousness of the crime.
