She spoke about how she came up with the idea when she was told that she would be headed back to NXT once medically clear in an interview with Sports Illustrated.

“When learned I was headed to NXT, the whole motorcycle package was an idea I had after watching an action movie called Hardcore Henry,” Moon said. “The NXT creative team is absolutely amazing, and they got this massive set for me. I wanted elements of The Masked Singer so we could have clues to keep people guessing. And they were like, ‘Let’s do it!’

There is a video game I play, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, where there are these two dueling voices and you have to listen closely, and we did something similar for the surprise, which was absolutely amazing."

Moon also talked about not knowing Toni Storm would appear before her return, the injury, and more. Check out the full interview here.
