Social media posts from Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae give clues on WWE releases


So much for a quiet pro wrestling Sunday. Seemingly out of nowhere today (Oct. 29), the WWE took pro wrestling’s proverbial snow globe and gave it a good shake.

With longtime WWE wrestlers Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae all being released on the same random Sunday, the question becomes were any of the departures connected?

Also, did any of the three WWE veterans expect to be released anytime soon?

Some of the latest social media posts from Emma, Rae and Young give a little more context into why they are longer employed by the WWE.

From October 27th on Friday morning, Emma had this to say about the upcoming weekend.

Shoot name Tenille Dashwood, the 28-year-old Australian born wrestler has always been into modeling outside of the ring. The photo above could mean Emma is simply excited for the weekend or ready for a fresh start in her wrestling career, depending on how you read the tea leaves.

Over the past 72 hours, Rae was a little more cryptic or philosophical with her latest social media posts.

From Thursday October 26th, Rae had this to say about life or flowers.

"You need to understand that life isn't what you're given; it's what you create, what you overcome, and what you achieve that makes it beautiful."

Real name Danielle Moinet would follow-up on her overcoming struggles theme with a post from late Saturday night.

Never trippin' off the past, I would rather never mind 'em. Cuz only fools trip over somethin' that be behind them

Here is why Darren Young leaving the WWE on Sunday morning is the most surprising of the three; he spent Saturday night promoting WWE events with Becky Lynch, The Miz and Enzo at a LA Clippers NBA game.

From Saturday night, Young’s most recent post around 11:00 PM PST.

If Young had any idea he was going to no longer with the WWE on Sunday morning, he sure didn’t provide any clues on Saturday night.

Of the three wrestlers no longer on the WWE roster page, who is the most surprising departure? Emma? Summer Rae? Darren Young?
