Bengaluru, Nov 27: The WWE Universe is quite anticipated with the re-debut of Emma as Emmalina on Monday Night Raw.
The vignette airing on the Raw episodes showed that her gimmick is going to be a model like one which is quite attractive and unusual.
During this era of Women’s wrestling, this is quite unexpected. However, she is supposed to be some sort of fresh air into the Raw Women’s roster.
But, every glowing side must have a darker side, as well and so does the gorgeous Emmalina. In a recent Instagram post, Emma declared that six months ago from now she was in a critical condition.
Her situation was so bad that she could have gone on to a paralysis condition if the surgery was not done in time. It had incurred a critical condition in her neck and back portion afterward.
Emma picked up the injury during a house show in early May. Her back was injured, severely causing her six month of her career. However, at that time, the WWE Doctor advised her to put only ice bags on her back.
Six months ago today I couldn't bend over to put my shoes on. I couldn't lift my arms up to get dressed. I couldn't hold my hand up to do my makeup. I couldn't sit stand or walk without pain. I knew it was bad when I realized all these things weren't going away and when the left side of my spine and neck started to constantly spasm. It was even more scary finding out I needed surgery on my spine right away because the spasms and the weakness in my left arm were from nerve damage from the herniated disc pressing on my spinal cord. But in that instant all I could think was that I was lucky I wasn't paralyzed! Six months ago I had surgery and you can see the removed disc above. Today I stand here happy to say I'm fit and healthy. It was a crazy ride but I stayed positive, focused and determined to be better than before. After all, I didn't move my life across the world and leave everything behind for nothing. I fully believe that everything happens for a reason and maybe I needed to fall back for a while away from the crowd so that I can come back and take that spotlight... And believe me I will!

But, the back pain increased and the scar occurred to be something much deeper. She could not even move her neck and hands, properly. She quoted,
“Six months ago today I couldn't bend over to put my shoes on. I couldn't lift my arms up to get dressed. I couldn't hold my hand up to do my makeup.
"It was even scarier finding out I needed surgery on my spine right away because the spasms and the weakness in my left arm were from nerve damage from the herniated disc pressing on my spinal cord.

Her injury came at a bad time. She was at her top game by allying with Dana Brooke and bringing the A-game.
She was supposed to get a big push since her effort was noticed amongst the WWE creative. Even the fans appreciated her work as a top heel.
WWE has started channeling her new gimmick called Emmalina since October and it is expected that she would pick up her career just where she left off. Also, she might get her long due championship chance upon return.
