Ember Moon had a good run in NXT, became NXT Women’s Champion, and was called up to the WWE main roster. She had some success, but then found her way to catering. After an Achilles injury, Moon was out of commission and feared that she might never wrestle again.

GiveMeSport recently spoke to Ember Moon where she revealed that it was her call to make an NXT return. She actually called Triple H with the idea and he obviously approved.

“I started just looking and I was like, I don’t know if I fit in on RAW, I don’t know if I fit in on SmackDown – but NXT that’s someplace I fit in. So I went and I had a meeting and I just told him (Triple H) how I felt. And he was just like, ‘Okay, if this is something you really want to do, F-yeah, I would love to have you back. But we got to see, because we all know that they really love you up there.’

“Honestly, the first phone call I made, it wasn’t to my husband, it wasn’t to any of my friends – It was to Triple H. I got a text from Triple H saying welcome home, we got you back. And I was like, ‘Yes, I’m coming back baby,’ and so I ended up staying an extra week filming all these vignettes because they asked what do you want to do?”


Ember Moon’s call to make an NXT return obviously paid off. Now she is 1/2 of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. We’ll have to see what she does next, but the former NXT Women’s Champion is not done with the black and gold brand at all.
