Ember Moon was recently fired from WWE after returning to NXT following an injury that kept her out for a long time, but sadly her commitment to the development brand has not served to keep her further in the company. Now she has taken the name of Athena, she has made some appearances in the Indies, recently for example she challenged another former WWE, Mia Yim, at WrestleCon, but she could also be very close to an agreement with All Elite Wrestling as reported recently by Fightful.
The wrestler, however, does not stop for now and she too managed to do some matches in the Warrior Wrestling promotion, where until a few days ago the champion was the luchadora, Thunder Rosa. During the same live stream, Ember Moon revealed that she felt sorry for her friends who didn’t get the same chances as her to prove themselves, the same way the former NXT Women's Champion did.
Ember Moon is a former WWE superstar
Former WWE Superstar Ember Moon recently commented on her recent release from the company. Moon, a former NXT Women’s Champion, is now competing under the name of Athena on the independent circuit.
During the last event organized by Warrior Wrestling last Saturday, named Warrior Wrestling XXI, Athena managed to defeat two opponents, namely Skye Blue, who also works in All Elite Wrestling and Shazza McKenzie, taking home the Warrior Wrestling Women's Championship, made vacant by Thunder Rosa, who after becoming the main champion of Khan's company, could not keep the title for the full calendar.
In fact, usually the champions in professional wrestling have many more work commitments than those who do not wear the belt, so they are always on tour, always giving interviews, participating in more storylines then in more shows, and so on.
Athena has therefore become the fourth Warrior Wrestling Women's Champion after Tessa Blanchard, the former champion also of IMPACT, Kylie Rae and of course the aforementioned Thunder Rosa, who during the event also made a very moving gesture in the center of the ring kneeling with her head down with the belt in hand.
