Ember Moon recently spoke with WWE.com about her NXT debut at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II. Before she made it to NXT, Moon competed in Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling promotion in Texas. Moon commented on her time in the promotion.
After training with Vance [Archer, and General Skandor Akbar], I drove five hours for a tryout and made the cuts to be part of Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling promotion in Houston. In addition to being able to work his shows, I received full access to his training facility. Booker was the one who helped me hone in on the high-flying aspect of my move set. Even though I was really comfortable in the ring, Booker gave me the confidence and motivation that I really needed to succeed in the wrestling world. Booker even suggested that I try to broaden my training by traveling around the world.
Now that she has made it to NXT, Moon was asked about her goals. Moon wants to raise the bar that was set by the Four Horsewomen (Charlotte, Bayley, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch).
I look forward to raising the bar set by the Four Horsewomen of NXT. They changed the way people view the Women’s division, and I want to continue that. I am not a porcelain princess; I am here to break barriers. I not only want to change women’s wrestling, but I also want to change the industry as a whole. This is the path they choose and the war I will take up arms for. It is a new beginning and I am ready for it.
