Ember Moon signed a deal with WWE in September 2015 and made her television debut on NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II, before having some physical problems that forced her to stay out for quite some time after her main roster run, only to return to NXT and be fired on November 4th along with other superstars.
During a live on her Twitch channel, she talked about her release from WWE: "Without WWE, I wouldn't be where I am now. I've traveled the world, met great people. and I've made amazing friends that will stay with me for life.
At the end of the day, I don't think it's all bad. Whenever I look at the negatives, and there were a lot of them, believe me, the positives prevail over this. It is useless to be angry."
The latest news on Ember Moon
Ember Moon was another unfortunate victim of the WWE chopping block season that saw a number of superstars released.
The former NXT Women's Champion and other superstars that were released were informed beforehand by WWE's head of talent relations, John Laurinaitis, via email. The wrestler continued, explaining that she doesn't think it's right for her to complain when so many of her friends, who haven't had the same opportunities as her, were released: "I'm very sorry for friends who were let go too soon.
What I mean is for the men and women who have never had the opportunity to show off to the level that I know they can show off. This is one of the reasons I feel it's not fair for me to come here. Complaining. It's not fair. Where I've had the opportunity to fight on Raw, SmackDown, and NXT and become a champion and have done a lot with my career, it's not fair when my friends' are barely even started." On February 2nd, her 90-day non-competition clause officially ended, so she can now go and fight elsewhere and in fact she will do it against Pink Thunder at Warrior Wrestling 19 on February 12th.
On the match, she said: “It's an opportunity to prove that I'm not a failure. For a while, I've felt this way and I know in my heart and soul that I'm better than that." Ember Moon, who was a member of the main roster at one point, returned to WWE NXT after suffering a severe Achilles injury that put her out of action.
She however overcame a career-threatening injury and made her way back into the ring again. Her last appearance in WWE was over on October 5 in NXT 2.0, where she lost to the newly crowned NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose.
