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.

I'm glad they rehired her, because firing her was a little overboard, but only if the theft was truly accidental like she claimed. If she knowingly stole it, then she definitely should of been canned. I normally watch RAW on Mondays, but haven't watched in 6 months, so idk if she's popular at all. Anyway, she'd better count her blessings, because normally WWE is a RUTHLESS company. They don't care how loyal or dedicated a person you are, you break a rule and/or embarass them in any way, and they'll can you and not think twice. Unless you're banging Vince's daughter. In which case, you're safe no matter what you do.

The ONLY "shocking" thing here, is that TMZ posts that like it WASN'T going to happen!! You Don't fire cash cows for $2.00. Just ask the STILL owner of the Clippers!
