The WWE universe waited for 17 weeks to see the transformation of Emma to Emmalina but the character was dropped this Monday on her debut. The latest WWE rumors have revealed the reason why the Emmalina gimmick was dropped and Emma is back to her old heel character.

During her two-minute appearance this past week on Raw, Emmalina said that her transformation is complete, per WWE.com. She then announced that she will now be going back as Emma, which confused the fans in attendance and at home.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, the WWE nixed the Emmalina character on Monday morning during the rehearsals for Raw. There were big plans for her, but Emma could not pull off what they wanted from the character.

The decision was to drop the character and Emma goes back to his heel character. The Emmalina gimmick was supposedly a throwback character in the mold of Sable and The Kat. However, Emma reportedly did not commit to the role and produces just let her revert back to her original gimmick.

Emma re-invented herself after getting demoted to NXT. She repackaged herself as an evil character and aligned herself with Dana Brooke. She returned to the main roster in March last year for the 10-Diva Tag Team Match between Team B.A.D. & Blonde and Team Total Divas.

The Australian superstar then feuded with Becky Lynch and she started getting some momentum. There were even talks of pushing her to become a women's champion later that year. However, she suffered a back injury in a live event on May 16, 2016.

Emma underwent surgery to correct the herniated disc on her back. She was out until late September and she was cleared to return. The WWE then started showing vignettes of Emmalina at the start of October and teased her debut for 17 weeks.

The vignettes were a total waste of time, but Emma will benefit from just being her old, evil character. The Raw women's division needs a fresh face and Emma is just the superstar who can provide it.
