In the latest episode of NXT that aired on Wednesday evening on USA Network and which as usual collided with AEW's Dynamite, WWE wanted to give its fans several surprises, such as the announcement of a new championship dedicated entirely to the female tag teams of the yellow show, which will now also have their own titles.
After seeing William Regal crown the very first NXT tag team champions, however, the first challenge titled on that of the WWE Wednesday night show took place, with Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon who left WWE Universe fans amazed, going to win the titles only a few minutes after seeing their opponents, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez, crowned.
In her latest post on her Instagram page, where Ember Moon wanted to celebrate the victory of the titles together with her friend Shotzi, the former NXT absolute champion also wanted to talk about retirement, because only a year ago, the couple champion of the yellow show was in fact struggling with a very bad injury, which could, apparently, also put an end to her career.
Ember Moon is 1/2 of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions
"It took me a few days to process it all. Last year at this time I was thinking that I would not be able to get into the ring anymore and I was therefore considering retiring.
And now I can instead define myself as champion, once again. 2 years and 11 months since I last held a title. And now I do it with a person I literally consider to be a sister, Shotzi Blackheart. She was always there to hold me up, to make me laugh, to watch my back and she always stopped me when I was wrong.
Shotzi has always pushed me to be a better person and performer. We are two peas in a smoke-filled tub. I love you. For the first time in a long time, I'm having fun and my passion has returned to a totally different level.
Thanks, Triple H! This is just the beginning... and I am truly grateful to be HOME, at NXT," said Ember Moon. Last week, Raquel González and Dakota Kai received a WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, and Adam Pearce screwed them out of a victory.
As a result, the writing was on the wall; it seemed obvious that William Regal would establish NXT's own set of tag team titles. Naturally, Kai and González deserved to be the first champions. After Kai and González lost the titles, Io Shirai chose Big Mami Cool as the next contender for her NXT Women's Championship. As of this writing, this development is the only logical explanation for the immediate title change.
