Ember Moon History
Reese began her training in wrestling with two big names: Skandor Akbar and Booker T. She joined and made her debut for Booker T’s Pro Wrestling Alliance (now named Reality of Wrestling) in 2007. She went on to move to the Professional Championship Wrestling the same year, where she had an unsuccessful attempt at winning the PCW Tag Team title.
Adrienne joined the Austin-based wrestling promotion Anarchy Championship Wrestling in 2010. She managed to have a successful run at the company as she won the ACW American Joshi Championship title thrice in consecutive years (2010, 2011, 2012). Between 2010 and 2015, she also made several appearances for the Illinois-based Shimmer Women Athletes. She also turned out for the Women Superstars Uncensored, where she unsuccessfully challenged for the WSU Championship. She had to take a hiatus due to injury in 2013 and made a comeback at WSU with a victory over Hania the Howling Huntress in February 2014.
She signed a deal with WWE in September 2015, and it was reported that she would be assigned to the developmental territory of WWE, NXT. She made her live televised debut for the company on October 10 in a tag team match. Initially she wrestled for the WWE under the name of Adrien Reese or Adrienne Reese, however from June 2016, she took on the ring name of Ember Moon.
Ember Moon happened to have been wrestling in the NXT at the same time, when Asuka was having her unstoppable run at the brand, having held the NXT Women’s title for a record 510 days. Ember was denied several chances at the title thanks to Asuka, who went on defeating anyone and everyone in a juggernaut fashion. Eventually Asuka suffered an injury and had to vacate her title, which was won by Ember Moon in a fatal four way match. Asuka made a surprise appearance to hand the title to Moon herself.
She made her main roster debut after WrestleMania 34, teaming up with Raw Women's Champion Nia Jax to defeat Alexa Bliss and Mickie James. At the 2019 Royal Rumble, Ember Moon suffered an elbow injury which required a surgery. She made a comeback at the WrestleMania 35, where she was eliminated by Lana.
