A WWE wrestler was slammed by former world champion Bray Wyatt for joking about Emma dropping her job.
Lio Rush, who has simply joined the roster of NXT, discovered himself in sizzling water together with his colleagues after posting a comment on Twitter.
Wrestling followers have been shocked on Sunday after WWE introduced they’d terminated the contract of Monday Evening Uncooked’s Emma.
The Australian’s axeing got here as much more of a shock contemplating it had been lower than per week since she fought Asuka at Tables, Ladders and Chairs.
Emma, 28, had been having fun with a push in current weeks and final Sunday’s look at TLC was her first-ever PPV singles match.
She reacted to the information by Tweeting a heartbroken emoji following the announcement – however not everybody was feeling sympathetic about her dropping her job.
The 22-year-old Rush, who solely joined the NXT model in August, tweeted: “I assume these are the issues that occur while you’re not TRULY prepared for @WWEAsuka.”
He later deleted the tasteless tweet after a barrage of criticism from a number of of WWE’s prime superstars.

Former WWE world champion Bray Wyatt, at the moment struggling with viral meningitis, responded with: “You ain’t gonna make it right here with the wolves, child.”
Fellow NXT ace Peyton Royce added: “Wow, child. Didn’t you simply get right here? Professionalism goes a great distance.”

Rush later posted a so-called apology that got him in further trouble.
In a long-winded statement, he said: “At the end of the day, there’s a certain level of respect within professional wrestlers in the sports & ENTERTAINMENT industry that is noted within peers.
“With that being said, Emma I respect you and everything you’ve done for our business. It saddens me that the “controversial tweet” got completely blown out of proportion and looked at in a very insensitive way.
“As a family man with a 4-year-old son and expecting another, I would never laugh or mock the fact of someone loosing there job because of how it can affect self-person and their families.
“Whatever the situation may be regarding the release, you’re an amazing performer and respected athlete by yours truly and I’m sure you will excel beyond [expectations].
“To my fans who may have seen this as inappropriate as well as Emma’s fans, I apologise and I love you ALL regardless of the responses. On Behalf of myself and the WWE Goodluck!”
Manchester-born Jack Gallagher, a member of the 205 Live cruiserweight division, was not impressed.
He commented: “Apologising because people didn’t like your joke, not for joking about someone losing their job. Also, try the English classes at the PC.”
