That’s never a good sign. There are a lot of ways for someone to get hurt in wrestling. You never know how bad things are going to be as soon as you see someone go down and that can make things rather scary. With so many wrestlers in the world today, you never know how often someone is going to be injured and put on the shelf. One such injury may be a lot worse than usual.
There have been all kinds of wrestlers who have come up from NXT. The developmental system has gone from an extra show to fill in time to one of the most popular and revered promotions in the world. Titles mean a lot down in NXT as they rarely change hands. If you are a former NXT Champion, odds are you are going to be a big deal on the main roster. One such big deal might not be getting another chance though.
During this week’s edition of WWE Backstage, former NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon discussed her torn Achilles injury. Moon said that she may be dealing with a career ending injury and does not know when or if she will be back in the ring. She also talked about matches and moments where she wished she had done better as she does not know when she will be able to do anything again. The injury took place in September 2019 during a backstage segment where Moon was chasing the 24/7 Title. Moon last wrestled on the September 23 Monday Night Raw in a loss to Lacey Evans.
This was a hard thing to watch. Check out what Moon had to say:
Opinion: That’s a horrible possibility as no one deserves to have their career ended in such a quick way. What makes it worse is that Moon is only thirty one years old and was injured in a comedy segment in the back. I really hope that Moon gets to come back as she is someone who could go a lot further with some slight tweaks to her presentation. The talent is there, and I really hope that the injury isn’t as bad as it might be.
What do you think of Moon? Will she ever win one of the Women’s Titles? Let us know in the comments below.
