Ember Moon has the freedom to look for a new organization, and AEW seems to be one of the options for her “It was literally up until maybe August or September that they were still trying,” Athena said for Insight with Chris Van Vliet, as quoted by wrestlinginc.
“I remember saying that I would love to take the money, but you have given me no reason to stay. I remember that being my point of dispute with them. I wanted them to make me stay, but I was seeing everything going on in AEW and I’m like that looks fun!
For a while we couldn’t talk about it, but how else do you expect us to outshine them. But I wasn’t watching them for film, I was watching them because I was envious. I remember I would text Dustin from time to time to see how he was and he would say ‘we are sure having fun over here.’ ‘I see that Dustin!
But how are you?’ Dustin was great and he always gave me great advice on my character. I’m there like ‘this is f*cking Goldust taking an interest in my character.' ”
Ember Moon was rejected by WWE several times, but in the end, she signed a contract.
“I got told ‘you’re not pretty enough, you need to lose weight, you’re not what we are looking for, you’re too buff,'” Athena said. “All of these comments have been said in my previous try-outs, and then I finally got the yes.
It meant so much more to me that I wasn’t going to be a Diva. I’m not a Diva. “Do I like putting on makeup and looking pretty? Who doesn’t? But when it comes to my aesthetic and the fans that I cater to, I don’t promote se*uality like that.
I never have and I don’t think I ever will. I’ve never been that type of person. I am a nerd, so it meant so much more to be merited on my performance instead of my appearance”.
