What's the story?

Even though WWE still holds the monopoly in terms of being the supreme name in sports entertainment, it's still not the end-all, be-all company in the business. There are options aplenty for those in independent wrestling today.

Recently released WWE Superstar Emma sent out a Tweet, saying that she will start taking independent bookings from 1st February 2017. A huge wrestling fan herself, she's far from done in the business.

In case you didn't know...

Emma and two of her co-workers, Darren Young and Summer Rae, were released from their WWE contracts last week. We later found out via Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer, that they were being paid until early next year, so they had a non-compete clause in their contract.

Through Emma's Tweet, we found out when their contract would allow them to start competing once more.

The heart of the matter

Much has been written about Emma's dismissal and the waste of her potential, so we will not dwell on that. Instead let's analyse her Tweet and look ahead, at her future. According to Emma, she's been receiving numerous booking enquiries from across the world.

This is not surprising because not only is Emma the perfect blend of looks and in-ring work, she's also a known name because of her WWE tag. It's great to see that fans can see her elsewhere, and that she's kept her chin up high.

What's next?

The RAW Women's Division moves along without Emma in their ranks, right now. Emma certainly will find work elsewhere. Both parties involved will definitely persevere.

Author's take

I was a huge fan of Emma and was sad to see her go when she got released from the company.

But we saw two great pay-per-views (Power Struggle and Bound for Glory) this weekend and neither was a WWE event, right? In my opinion, Emma will do just fine outside WWE.
