It wasn’t Bo Dallas who was the mystery person that had been featured in vignettes hyped by WWE, but rather Ember Moon.
A video aired during WWE NXT TakeOver 31 and then a woman was shown entering the arena. It was the former NXT Women’s Champion who came out to have a staredown with current Women’s Champion Io Shirai.
Shirai successfully retained the title over Candice LeRae at this show. Toni Storm also declared her return to NXT after the match.
Triple H stated during the post-TakeOver 31 conference call that Moon was brought back because she was cleared and healthy.
Moon took to her Twitter account on Monday morning to comment on making a return to NXT after being on the main roster. She wrote the following:
“.@wwenxt. Sometimes to move forward you must go back! Red and blue were good but my heart and soul has always bled black and yellow.”

Moon had been on the shelf as last year she ruptured her Achilles and tore it off the bone when she was chasing Carmella during a segment involving the WWE 24/7 Title.
