Ember Moon to sit down for exclusive interview on NXT
Ember Moon was cut short in her first address since returning, but the NXT Universe will get to hear more from her this week in an exclusive sit-down interview.
Moon made it clear last week that she’s targeting Io Shirai and the NXT Women’s Championship. However, Rhea Ripley emerged to make it clear she wouldn’t stand idly by if Moon plans on budging her way to the front of the line.
The two former NXT Women’s Champions were able to co-exist for a victory over Dakota Kai & Raquel González, but tensions figure to persist.
Hear more from Moon on her shocking return and what’s next on NXT!
Ember Moon to collide with Charlotte Flair
Ember Moon received the biggest opportunity of her WWE career thus far last week, when SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley challenged her to a title match at SummerSlam. However, The Shenom will have no time to rest on her laurels, as she now has to prepare to challenge The Queen.
Moon will look to make a definitive statement by besting Charlotte Flair, the most decorated Superstar in the Women’s division. Will The War Goddess pick up invaluable momentum as SummerSlam approaches or will The Queen stay Queen and knock Ember down a significant notch?
SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley vs. Ember Moon
Week in and week out, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley has established herself as a truly inspirational titleholder, most recently with a successful title defense in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross at WWE Extreme Rules. Up next, she will look to stop an absolute force of nature when she battles Ember Moon at SummerSlam. Could a championship Eclipse be on the horizon?
After Moon was challenged by Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville to find a partner to face the outspoken duo in a tag team contest on SmackDown LIVE, Bayley answered the call and helped The Shenom secure the victory in convincing fashion.
As the smoke cleared on the hard-hitting tag team bout, Kayla Braxton asked Bayley who her next challenger might be in the wake of her pay-per-view triumph. Responding to the calls of the WWE Universe, the gusty titleholder wasted little time offering The War Goddess an opportunity, which Moon accepted with a joyous “Hell yeah!”
Don’t miss what is sure to be a classic showdown at The Biggest Event of the Summer, Sunday Aug. 11, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on WWE Network.
