From the WWE Rumor Mill: Ember Moon's injury is part of a storyline and a cover
What’s the story?
According to The Observer, Ember Moon’s shoulder injury may not be legitimate, but instead is merely a part of a WWE storyline.
The aforementioned kayfabe injury may be a cover for another legitimate injury that will apparently keep her out of action for at least another month.
In case you didn’t know...
Ember Moon (Adrienne Reese) is a 10-year veteran of the sport and a former 3-time ACW American Joshi champion.
The 28-year old NXT Superstar was initially scheduled to compete in a Fatal 4-Way match against Ruby Riot, Nikki Cross and Asuka for the latter’s NXT Women’s championship. However, on May 8th, WWE announced via its official website that Moon had suffered a shoulder injury, after being thrown out of the ring by Asuka, thereby removing her from the scheduled championship matchup.
The heart of the matter
The Observer has noted that WWE’s announcement of Ember Moon’s shoulder injury may be a part of the promotion’s storyline.
Rumours are rife that Moon may have sustained another injury that is likely to take a few weeks to heal, and that the aforementioned announcement by WWE may be a cover-up for this minor injury.
Asuka will defend her NXT Women’s championship against Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross at NXT Takeover: Chicago at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois this May 20th.
Ember Moon is likely to be out for at least another month, and fans can expect the Wrestling Goddess to be back in the NXT Women’s title picture on her return.
As a longtime fan of Ember Moon, I’m proud to say that she has been competing as a professional wrestler for a decade now, and in my opinion, the WWE ought to fast-track her to the main roster.
The SmackDown Live Women’s division is in desperate need of a boost, now that Alexa Bliss has been drafted to RAW, and inserting Ember Moon into the WWE’s Tuesday night TV slot, may help provide that much-needed impetus to the blue brand’s female roster. Perhaps, she can be the foil to the Welcoming Committee instead of Charlotte Flair.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 10:44 IST
