While answering questions on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez was asked about Ember Moon dropping the NXT Women’s Championship to Shayna Baszler at Saturday’s NXT Takeover: New Orleans event and then moving Ember up to the main roster. Alvarez speculated a title change will take place in the women’s match, but mentioned that he doesn’t know if Ember would be called up immediately to the main roster.

“I think that Shayna is winning at Takeover. I don’t know if Ember is being called up.”

Alvarez explained in-depth how Ember has had a pretty flat run as the NXT Women’s Champion and they didn’t do her any favors with her booking.

‘I don’t want to be that guy but I am all the time, so I will again. I told everyone about this Ember Moon thing. They messed it up from day one and they have been messing it up since. Like, she could never beat Asuka. Asuka leaves, she wins. They even had a deal where Asuka showed up and stole her spotlight when handing her the belt. I thought, “they got to be doing something with this.” They pushed her as a weak champion for her entire reign. She barely squeaked out of a flash pin over Shayna after getting man-handled in the ring. They have done her zero favors, in like a year now. So yeah, her reign has been flat and now they’re probably going to beat her at Takeover and then, you got to re-build her or something or send her up and start over.”

Do you think Ember Moon needs more time in NXT or should they bring her up to the main roster after WrestleMania? Sound off in the comment section below…
