Emma’s WWE release came with a 90-day no-compete clause but that means she’ll be free to take bookings in February 2018. Therefore it might be possible to catch Emma in a town near you on the amazing modern-day indie wrestling circuit soon enough.
But The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports one deal Emma was negotiating with Stardom in Japan has already fallen through. Apparently, Emma’s demands were just too much for them to give her.
Apparently, Emma’s demands of $2,000 per match plus first-class airfare and creative control were too much for Stardom to shell out for the founder of WWE’s Women’s Revolution.
Stardom hosts some of the top female wrestling talents in Japan and they’re always looking for new stars to bring in. Someone like Emma might do very well in Stardom of course, wherever she goes Emma won’t be allowed to use her WWE name. She’ll go back to her real name Tenille Dashwood when she sets off on her own. But that is if she can find a place willing to pay her what he’s asking.
Emma’s participation would be a big shot in the arm for any promotion because she has a considerable following in spite of how little of a chance WWE gave her. After all, #HireEmma didn’t become a thing for no reason.
