* ArcFatigue: Emmalina has this and she hasn't even redebuted yet. The promos have been going on for months, including several weeks after she was hyped as appearing "next week", leading everyone to just want them to get the hell on with it.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: Emma got arrested for 'stealing' (in reality, she was using a self-scanner and forgot to scan an iPod case, and the store needed to meet a quota, so she got arrested) and ended up being fired. The fans went berserk, with quite a few questioning why Emma got fired when people like Cameron (who got arrested for a DUI, lied about where she worked and tried to bribe a cop) and Jack Swagger (who got busted with marijuana) are still on the roster. She was subsequently rehired within two hours. It probably helped that (A) she's the only Australian on the WWE roster and the company was touring there just over a month later (with Emma being featured prominently), and (B) the questions fans were asking could've gotten into the eyes of TMZ, which would not have looked good for their brand.
* BadassDecay: It's not her fault, though. It's pretty much impossible to find a fan who likes that she's been paired with Santino. A huge number of fans want Emma to go solo ASAP. [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Since Santino retired, she's done a few singles matches on]] ''[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Superstars,]]'' [[DownerEnding but nothing really high-profile.]] Presumably, relegating her to the B-shows is the WWE's way of [[RealLifeWritesThePlot punishing Emma for getting charged with theft]] (which they had announced they would do upon re-hiring her).
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Her new character of Emmalina hasn't even ''debuted'' yet but already has many, many detractors. It doesn't help that the vignettes being played for it make it clear that instead of her old character, she's instead having a modeling gimmick of some sorts. Some people are dreading it, while others point out that heel Emma essentially had no gimmick and the Emmalina thing could give her a boost. It ended up not happening anyway, as within a minute of debuting Emmalina she declared she was going back to Emma; after several rehearsals, WWE finally axed the gimmick, since they felt she couldn't pull it off right.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The newest Austen mash-up ''[[http://www.amazon.com/James-Fairfax-Jane-Austen/dp/1607620383/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1281652588&sr=8-1 James Fairfax]]'' takes place in an AlternateUniverse where same-gender relationships are not the least bit unusual... and simply {{Gender Flip}}s Jane Fairfax into a male instead of making Emma/Harriet the OfficialCouple -- although at least the {{subtext}} between them is openly acknowledged.

* GrowingTheBeard: Crowd responses to her SHIMMER debut were lukewarm compared to tag team partner Rayna Von Tosh's. Yeah, Tenille Tayla was the bland one.

Once she was given a slight makeover (going from brown to blonde, adopting catchier ring gear) and brushing up on her skills, she was held in higher regard.

* NarmCharm: The entire point of the dancing gimmick. It was so silly and yet once it got over, it was lots of fun.
