WWE Diva/Shoplifter Emma

Rehired

2 HOURS After Getting Fired!!!

7/2/2014 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0702-emma-wwe-03
Maybe the WWE realized ... if stealing a $21.14 iPad case is a fireable offense ... there wouldn't be enough wrestlers left for a tag team match -- so they REHIRED Diva Emma 2 hours after canning her.

The wrestling org gave Emma the boot 2 days after she copped a plea to stealing the iPad case from a Connecticut Walmart.  

The WWE just said, "Upon further evaluation, WWE has reinstated [Diva Emma] but will take appropriate punitive action for her violation of the law."

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... WWE officials quickly realized they overreacted, because their action would open the floodgates to fire a gaggle of wrestlers for fighting outside the ring, DUI and all sorts of other misdeeds.

It's unclear how Emma will be punished.

iPad case closed.

Too bad... They got it right the first time. Stealing is not the same as fighting outside the ring, or other offenses. It indicates a major character flaw, and a person you can't trust. I'm sure this was a decision made by a lawyer. Most of them have no character either.

It's a sham dame.

Uggg. Enough already. Nobody cared with the first "exclusive" report. We certainly care less about the follow ups.

I never watch WWE, so I've never seen her before, but she is a cutie in that white trashy/stoner sort of way.

Well, if they wouldn't fire Bo Dallas after a DWI due to Alcohol or Jack Swagger after a DWI due to Marijuana, seems inappropriate to fire Emma after stealing a $20 iPad case.
