In an update on original plans for Emma to return on WWE television as the Emmalina character, the character itself was intended to be a throwback to women’s wrestlers such as Sable and The Kat/Miss Kitty and that after multiple rehearsals, producers realized that Emma could not pull off what they were looking to accomplish, according to a report from Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet.

The report notes that delays were caused after officials felt like Emma was not committing enough to the role and ultimately decided to just let her return to her more-known character and that producers are still big fans of the concept of the character, meaning that it could be used for another female down the line.

The video of Emma premiering as Emmalina before stating that she would be returning to the Emma character is below.
