On Twitter, Ember Moon shared a big prediction regarding the future of her tag team with Shotzi Blackheart. The former NXT Women's Champion claimed that she and Blackheart will not only be winning the Dusty Cup this weekend, but the pair will also be WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.
Ember Moon in WWE
Ember Moon signed an NXT contract in 2015, and in 2016 she began wrestling under her current name. During her first NXT run, Ember Moon was one of the most dominant members of their women's division, and scored wins over popular stars such as Peyton Royce and Nikki Cross, before winning a Fatal Four-Way match for the NXT Women's Championship, after it was vacated by an injured Asuka.
Ember Moon took part in the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match, shortly before she lost the NXT Women's Championship to Shayna Baszler. The star then made the move to the main roster of WWE, and came close to winning the women's battle royal at Evolution in late 2018.
After sustaining an injury in late 2019, Ember Moon began appearing as a an analyst on WWE Backstage, and expressed concern about her in-ring career potentially being over. However, towards the end of 2020, Ember Moon returned to NXT, and took part in the women's WarGames match in Team Shotzi, and is currently a finalist in the Women's Dusty Classic tournament.
