Last month, Emma (aka Tenille Dashwood) made a surprise return to the company along with several other stars who were fired under the old regime. Recently, she talked about working with her real-life boyfriend, Madcap Moss, on WWE television.
Earlier this year, Emma was working for Impact Wrestling, where she won the Knockouts Tag Team Championship. A few months earlier, she made her return to WWE, where she challenged Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in a losing effort.
She was recently seen on Blue Brand with real life boyfriend Madcap Moss. Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, the 33-year-old Superstar discussed working with the former Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner in WWE:
“I still twitch myself sometimes because I really enjoy what I do. Even Madcap and I, we joked about it many times, ‘Imagine if we worked together ‘ and all these stories we joke about and what we’ll do, and then I actually come back to the same show he was in, and then to a story together that we never discussed We joked, but we never really thought it would happen and we didn’t discuss it with other people.” (h/t Fightful)
It will be interesting to see the pairing of these two for the WWE Mixed Match Challenge. However, at the live event, the two were in a mixed tag team match against Karrion Cross and Scarlett.
Emma reveals WWE lined up the couple to work together on weekly television
Couples in WWE often dream of working together on weekly programming. Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins were the most common occurrences when they defended their Raw Women’s and Universal Championships, respectively, at WWE Extreme Rules against Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin.
More recently, real-life couples have been allowed to speak freely about their relationship without any implication from the company. Speaking in the same interview, Emma revealed that the company had pitched the idea to the couple to have an on-screen relationship and not the other way around:
“It wasn’t us. It might seem like it was, but they have their own thoughts and I have mine. I just thought, ‘Well, they’re bringing me back,’ and I had this and that in my head, and After a week or two they said, ‘We’re going to put you guys together.’ ‘It’s cool, we’re together and an on-screen couple, what a nice thing.’ We’re definitely making the most of it.” (h/t Fightful)
It will be interesting to see if the new regime introduces intergender or mixed tag team titles in the near future.
