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

* 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. That she's the only Australian on the WWE roster and the company toured there just over a month later (with Emma being featured prominently) probably helped too.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Arguably after she debuted on the main roster. Apparently the idea behind her being teamed up with Santino was that since he's a ditzy comedic face and she's a ditzy comedic face, they'd make a good team... except that hardly any of the fans agreed, because on the one hand, Emma by herself is a fan favourite who is quite capable of getting over without assistance; and on the other hand, while it ''might'' have been possible to pair her up with a male superstar in a team that would actually work, Santino is ''definitely'' not that superstar. Nobody liked the resulting team, which resulted in the two of them getting progressively less screen time, which just led to fans getting angrier. In the end, it took Emma getting punished for accidentally shoplifting and Santino retiring from in-ring work for her to finally get to go solo.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Emma again. Jane Austen wrote before she started that, "I am going to take a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like."

* ComedyGhetto: Avoided it on NXT as, although she had a comedy gimmick, she was still pushed as a (somewhat) serious wrestler and title contender. But she ended up falling into it on the main roster, mainly due to {{Flanderisation}} so that she became a one-note punchline and was not taken seriously at all.

* 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.]]
* EarWorm: That entrance theme...

]] 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).
