James McKenna of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that the gimmick originally intended for Emma is now being portrayed by current WWE star Mandy Rose, following Rose’s split from Absolution. You can read more details in the following tweet from McKenna down below.
It should be noted that Emma only used the Emmalina gimmick once, and then switched back to being Emma again. No reason was given for this, and Emma was later released that year by WWE.
fun fact : when they figured out emma wasnt going to fit well for the emmalina bit vince was adamant that mandy rose would be a good fit for the gimmick. damned if that entrance doesnt have a feel like what they were going for with the emmalina character. #SDLive pic.twitter.com/DvTCdJhMZk— james mckenna (@chillhartman) May 16, 2018
