On Sunday morning, WWE announced that Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae are no longer with the company.
NXT newcomer Lio Rush mocked Emma on what has to be a very tough day for her, joking that she ‘wasn’t ready for Asuka’ after losing to her twice over the past week.
I guess these are the things that happen when you’re not TRULY ready for @WWEAsuka ?

Fans on Twitter are giving him strong negative feedback for the tweet, noting that he’s not really in a position to be talking trash about a veteran performer.
WWE legend Sean Waltman and NXT star Payton Royce expressed disappointment and gave him some words of advice:
Sad to see this from you. https://t.co/7cmtITuaQa

Wow, kid. Didn’t you just get here? Professionalism goes a long way.

Former WWE Superstar Rosa Mendes also chimed in, telling Lio Rush to have some respect and class.
@itsLioRush SHOW SOME RESPECT!! Have some class. You work for the same company. I’m so disgusted.
