WWE Diva Emma Shoplifts $A23 iPad Case from Wal-Mart

By @AringoYenko on

World Wrestling Entertainment Aussie wrestler, Tenille Dashwood or Diva Emma, had allegedly shoplifted an iPad case worth $A23 from a store in Wal-Mart in Connecticut.

According to Dashwood's lawyer, Hubert Santos, she bought items worth $US 30 but overlooked paying for the red iPad mini case.

Dashwood was tried in a Connecticut Court on Tuesday. She was ordered to take community service.

"WWE is aware that Tenille Dashwood (WWE Diva Emma) was arrested for shoplifting. Ms Dashwood is ultimately responsible for her personal actions," WWE said in a statement obtained by The Australian.

WWE did not elaborate whether the offence will affect Dashwood's employment with them.

Dashwood is decribed as a "diva who dances like no one's watching and can pack a mean punch" and "boasts a wacky attitude and quirky confidence that would make even the boldest men raise an eyebrow," in WWE's web site.

Meanwhile, WWE announced that it is looking for more Australian talents to join Dashwood and Buddy Murphy (Matt Silva).

"We definitely need an Australian star. It's just good for business ... I'm definitely looking for the next superstar. The door is open for the young guys to break in," WWE Hall of Famer Booker T (Booker Huffman) said in an interview with Foxsports.com.au.

Huffman said that in order to break-in in the industry, one has to undergo training the American way.

"For the overseas wrestler such as the guys coming from Australia, I'd say it is getting trained in the American style of showmanship in the ring. It's all Shakespeare. You have to go to the founders who did it well in order to know how to do it well. You have to have a great coach to show you the way. Someone who is going to give you half a chance of going out there and being successful, and that is the key to getting into the business the right way," Huffman said.
