After feeling the devastating effects of Ember Moon’s Eclipse, Billie Kay and her co-Breakout Star of the Year Peyton Royce are calling for The War Goddess’ signature move to be banned.
There has been no love lost between Moon and the self-proclaimed “iconic duo” in recent weeks, which led to a battle between The War Goddess and Kay on the March 8 edition of WWE NXT. Moon walked out victorious after connecting with the Eclipse, a diving stunner off the top rope, but the raucous crowd was brought to a hush as The Femme Fatale laid motionless in the squared circle.
Medical staff, officials and Royce checked on Kay, who was clutching her neck before leaving the ring under her own power and giving the NXT Universe an update on her condition on Twitter later that night.

Royce, however, was scathing in her criticism of Moon’s signature move, demanding that NXT General Manager William Regal outlaw the maneuver.

Kay joined in, urging NXT fans to tweet using #BanTheEclipse. Moon has been quiet on the topic, instead turning her focus toward NXT TakeOver: Orlando and her showdown with Asuka for the NXT Women’s Championship. If Kay & Royce’s reaction is any indication of what Ember Moon is capable of doing, The Empress of Tomorrow may need to be extra vigilant to avoid being on the wrong end of the Eclipse.
