Championship match for NXT Takeover: Chicago changed due to injury

Ember Moon will not be ready in time for NXT Takeover: Chicago so the Fatal Four-Way match for the NXT Women’s Championship has been changed to a Triple Threat match.

Asuka will defend against Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross. As of this writing, the change has not been made on but Moon injured her shoulder at the last NXT TV tapings. The injury occurred in the battle royal and at the end of this week’s episode, you can see Moon holding her shoulder. She’s been seen wearing a sling at the Performance Center. There’s no word on how long she will be out of action.

The way she was being promoted, it was looking like she would have been the person to eventually beat Asuka for the title. I don’t know if they were planning on doing that in Chicago or at the Takeover show in Brooklyn. It’s still possible if he recovers by August.
