WWE News: Emma had new entrance music on RAW
What’s the story?
Emma’s year of on-again, off-again character changes seemingly continued this past week on Raw. Eagled-eared fans may have noticed that amidst thinking up hashtags and claiming to have started the Women’s Revolution, Emma was given new entrance music on this past Monday’s show.
Not that it was much of an improvement, mind...
In case you didn’t know…
It hasn’t been the most straightforward of years for Emma. After the company spent 17 weeks (yes, 17 weeks) promoting the "makeover of Emma to Emmalina", that idea was promptly canned when the powers that be seemingly suffered a loss of faith.
She’d then return under her original persona in April before a shoulder injury in May saw her miss another month of action. Since then, she’s picked up just one singles victory on Raw—and that only arrived on this week’s show when she beat Mickie James.
Going in depth
Unfortunately for Emma, this new music hardly makes for the most inspiring of entrance themes—within a pro wrestling context, at least. Plus, it’s not like there was anything wrong with her old music in the first place. In fact, her entrance was one of the better things she had going for her, and yet the company has seemingly decided to take that away from her too.
While it’s tempting to see the change of theme music as a step in the wrong direction for Emma, her win over James on Raw would suggest otherwise. Granted it wasn’t the most convincing of wins but all the same, it looks like the company may actually have plans for her, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one pans out in the coming weeks.
Changing Emma’s music is a bit of a confusing one, especially as there was nothing wrong with it, to begin with. Maybe the company just wanted to signal a change of direction for her, or maybe they’re just trying to get her character over as a heel by taking away an entrance song that people actually liked.
Regardless of the company’s reasoning for the change, here’s hoping they have a similar change of heart to the one they had with the Emmalina shtick.
