Paige was sad when Emma was released by WWE.
On October 29, Emma was let go by WWE along with Summer Rae and Darren Young. Her release came as a surprise since she was on Raw most weeks and had wrestled Asuka the week before on Raw and at the TLC pay-per-view.
On Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia, Paige discussed how disappointed she was to see Emma leave WWE.
“I was so sad for her because I know how much her life revolves around WWE,” Paige said. “She’s fine. she’s good. She’s like, ‘I get it…I wish I could be there.'”
Paige continued, “She’s traveling the world, experiencing life. She’s inspirational,” she continued.
Paige returned to WWE a few weeks later with Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville as part of her group Absolution. She told Garcia even though she is confused by Emma’s release, she does not want to ruffle any feathers by asking questions.
“I still don’t know. I still don’t get it. A lot of people don’t understand,” Paige said. “You know what, I’m not even going to pry when it comes to it.”
Paige said she expects Emma to make a big name for herself on the independent wrestling scene and that she left WWE on good terms.
Emma has not wrestled since leaving WWE but has several independent dates lined up beginning in February.
