How Much Money Is Emma Asking To Take Independent Bookings?


As noted, Emma, Darren Young, and Summer Rae are all under 90-day non-compete clauses after being released by the WWE. They are being paid their downside guarantees through January 27th, 2018, and will be free to work for any promotion after that.

Emma will be using her real name, Tenille Dashwood, on the indie scene. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that she was in talks with the World Wonder Ring Stardom promotion in Japan. Talks with that promotion fell through as she was asking $2,000 per match, plus first-class airline tickets and full creative control.

She confirmed on Twitter that she would be able to start working indie dates after February 1st, 2018. The feeling from Stardom officials was that granting those demands wouldn’t be a good business or economic move for the company.
