On Sunday, WWE released the following WWE Superstars; Emma, Summer Rae, and Darren Young.
NXT Superstar Lio Rush, reacted to the news of Emma’s release in a joking way on Twitter and immediately regretted it. The Tweet has been deleted but with how powerful social media is, there is a screenshot of this tweet.
Lio Rush’s tweet got plenty of people’s attention from the wrestling world.
Wow, kid. Didn’t you just get here? Professionalism goes a long way.

Former WWE Superstar Rosa Mendes even gave her thoughts on Twitter of Lio Rush’s insensitive tweet:
@itsLioRush SHOW SOME RESPECT!! Have some class. You work for the same company. I’m so disgusted.

A few hours following the tweet and undergoing a lot of criticism from peers, Rush tweeted an apology to Emma.
Lio Rush can expect some sort of punishment following his tweet. Hopefully Rush can take it as a learning experience.
