Tonight on NXT (Dec 6th), it was announced that newly crowned NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon will be back in action on next week’s NXT when she takes on Peyton Royce.

The match came about in the midst of an Ember Moon interview with the press to discuss winning the NXT Women’s Championship. Moon said winning the title at TakeOver: War Games was a dream come true and that her goal was to be the greatest NXT Women’s Champion in history.

She was then interrupted by the Iconic Duo Billie Kay and Peyton Royce who had a question of their own: Who did Ember Moon pin at TakeOver: War Games? Royce reminded Moon that she pinned Nikki Cross and thus, Royce deserves a chance to get her hands on Moon again.

The NXT Women’s Champion then posed a question of her own: Who will she face at next week’s episode of NXT? Despite some initial disagreement, the Iconic Duo agreed that Royce would take on Moon next week.

Elsewhere on the show, Sonya Deville and Ruby Riott returned to NXT to settle the score in their on-going NXT feud in a No Holds Barred match.

The Superstars wasted little time getting started, Deville tossing Riott across the ring and landing a gut wrench suplex early on. Riott responding with striking kicks and a snap suplex. When Riott went for the Riot Kick, Deville caught it to lock in the ankle lock. Riott escaped the hold by climbing and utilizing the ring ropes.

Following a commercial break, Deville was able to escape a sleeper submission by raking Riotts’ eyes and landing two sliding knees to Riott’s back. Deville then began to wear Riott down with a head in arm triangle. Riott managed to break the from Deville’s grip through elbow shots to the midsection and then bringing Deville down with an STO.

After getting hit with a springboard face crusher from Riott, Deville slipped to the outside but was taken down by a suicide dive. Riott tossed Deville back in the ring but as she was heading back in the ring, Deville caught Riott in a triangle hold through the ropes. The submission eventually caused Riott to pass out, thus declaring the win to Deville.

What did you think of this week’s episode of NXT? Are you excited for next week’s match between Ember Moon and Peyton Royce? Have you enjoyed the Ruby Riott/Sonya Deville NXT feud? Let us know in the comments beloW

    Why are Ruby and Sonya still compete in NXT, especially Ruby is babyface in NXT but heel on Smackdown. If NXT still can use them in a meaningful way on NXT, they should have stay longer.

    Iconic Problem may lead them to Iconic Feud

      Ugh SD is full of heels right now, really don’t know why couldn’t they have the Riott Squad debuted as faces and not do what Paige’s team is doing. I hope they don’t split Peyton and Billie up before they get to the MR ?

        Have you been watching Raw or Smackdown?

    • Wicked Emma

      You know sometimes when an NXT wrestler is bought up. Sometimes they STILL COMPETE in NXT?

    • Summer_Slay

      The match was pre taped at takeover lets not act like idiots k?

      • MiguelAngl

        The match was taped 1 week after takeover…

      • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

        It was still idiotic though why knowing that you had tapings with them as faces that didn’t air yet debut them as heels on the MR no thinking it wouldn’t make sense

  • Geo14

    Ember is the most boring NXT champion.

    • Edwards1992

      How can you say that? She hasn’t been champion for that long to delcare that…relax

    • I think you’re being sarcastic right? She literally won it like 2 weeks ago haha…

    • Wicked Emma

      No she isn’t. She just WON the championship! How in the hell she’s boring?

    • RadicallyRadic

      She hasn’t even had the belt for more than a month, calm your tits.

    • Bad and Bossy

      Your comment was one of the most stupid comments I’ve ever read

  • PeppermintButler

    Billie was the first woman Ember faced when she debut, I think she should also be the one to have a title shot or feud with Ember. LOVE Peyton but It’s Billie’s time to shine

    • ???

      She’s so underrated , plus she really needs to change her gear . It was cool at first but it getting stale right now .. I prefer her gears in 2015 !

      • Wicked Emma

        Nothing wrong with Billies ring gear.

        • ???

          Girl , she’s wearing this since over a year ! Yes it looks cool and all but it getting stale and change is must.

          • Wicked Emma

            If Billie doesn’t have problem with it. Nobody else should either.

          • ???

            Did I say I have a problem ? I’m just saying my opinion like everyone here no more nor less ??

          • Wicked Emma

            I can’t have an opinion either?

          • Duncan

            Your freedom ends where my begins.

    • Yesss

    • RadicallyRadic

      I agree. People are even saying that Billie is a terrible wrestler which, is they have never seen her work as Jessie McKay from SHIMMER, is flat out wrong.

    • RadicallyRadic

      Also I think it would also be poetic storytelling for Ember’s first WWE opponent to be the one to win the title from her if her & Peyton don’t get called up.

  • I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Billie and Peyton NEED to break up. Otherwise, they won’t survive long on the Main Roster (assuming they even make it to the main roster). They need to feud with one another with Billie being the heel and a COMPLETELY revamped “Femme Fatal” gimmick (and better ring gear/moveset/finisher; preferably her “Sitout Uranage” from her Indy days). Of the two, Peyton has more potential; but her character, finisher, ring gear, and possibly entrance theme needs a SERIOUS overhaul. Hopefully Ember gets better with her character/promo work (character development/work more so than promo work since neither Pam nor Asuka were never anything special on the mic during their respective title reigns). She literally has everything else (although I’d like to see a secondary finisher; preferably her “Hussy Lock” from her Indy days).

    • conan_kun
    • wysna

      To be fair, Peyton’s ring gear has been improving lately. And she is starting to look more and more like a star. But I agree. She needs a better finisher. I like aspects of her ring work though. I like her attitude, her vibe as a comedic heel. I’m just concerned that it might permanently fix her into Jillian Hall, enhancement talent territory. I think she deserves more than that. And since her gear has improved (thank God we know longer have to see that cough syrup colored body suit she used to wear) having a good finisher should be the next step.

    • Wicked Emma

      The Iconic Duo don’t need to break up. They are good as a team. Ember doesn’t need a gimmick change.

    • Super Mateo

      As unpopular as the idea is here, I think breaking up Billie and Peyton is best for both ladies. Peyton is a star waiting to happen. She’s got all of the skills she needs. She can go in the ring, she can talk, she can build characters, and she has the look. Having Billie always around may be holding her back and preventing Peyton from breaking out as a star. I do like your idea of turning Peyton face.

      Meanwhile, Billie is getting hidden behind her. This pairing isn’t doing anything for Billie. Most of the attention is on Peyton. I don’t feel I know as much as I should about Billie and I’ve barely seen her recently in the ring. Without Peyton around, Billie has a chance to be a much better version of what she is now.

  • wysna

    Peyton is getting prettier by the minute. Good for her since she does have so much potential. I just wish she’d get a better finisher than that basic ass Bridging Fisherman Suplex of hers. Maybe something unique that makes use of her flexible legs and her venus flytrap gimmick. Something that snatches at people by surprise.

    • Koji Clutch (one of her Indy finishers) would be perfect.

    • RadicallyRadic

      Even the Widow’s Peak she occassionally uses is a MUCH BETTER finisher that the BFS. LIke it worked so well with Victoria for reason.
      But even then that should only be a special attraction move I think. She needs something different that’s her and not Curtis Axel.

    • L.S #PushBillieKay

      It’s your lucky day, Peyton did a 619 in the tapings and got new gear too!

      • MiguelAngl

        Awful move

  • conan_kun

    The Iconic Times need to be the official talking segment. When they move to main roster, make this as their in-ring talking segment like MizTV or part of the Network show

  • Michael Burmy

    Peyton, Peyton, Peyton is ALWAYS getting the singles matches…is Billie injured or something?

  • Almarpar

    I just love the Iconic duo. So funny..
    i agree she needs a better finisher. Liked her version of widows peak. Think that should be it. I really dont want them to split. There so different to everyone else.
    I still think Peyton should of been champ.

    SvR wasnt all so good. But like looking fwd to them but on MR.

    • Wicked Emma

      Ember Moon as Champion is what’s best for business.

      • Almarpar

        Why?

        • Wicked Emma

          Ember was the right choice.

          • Almarpar

            …. great explanation.. well done.

          • Wicked Emma

            Truth is the light.

          • Almarpar

            Nope.. the truth is… your a dick. Bye

          • Wicked Emma

            LOL
            The truth is the truth either way.

  • Damn!

    As much as I like Peyton I want to see Billie get some ring action too

  • I’m so tired of Peyton competing all the damn time, Billie deserves the spotlight as well, she’s just as good as her.

    • Wicked Emma

      Agreed.

  • Wicked Emma

    Sonya needs a new gimmick.

  • Wicked Emma

    Peyton vs Ember Im cool with it. And Billie should be featured more.

  • Stratusfaction

    I hope Billie Kay beats gives Ember Moon a beatdown after the match, setting up a match between them next.

  • Glitter Bliss Banks

    So here for Peyton VS Ember, anything to keep the Iconic Duo in the limelight and for Embers reign to properly begin. So many contenders I would love to see….I would adore to see Ember VS Bianca Bel Air at a Takeover and of course Ember VS Kairi!

    I think of the end game for Ember was The Iconic Duo, I think that would be fitting….say even, Ember VS both Peyton and Billie at the Takeover would be great for storyline purposes and still make Ember look strong in defeat as it was a numbers game.

    It’s no secret that Peyton is my Favourite but I do believe that Billie could do with some exposure too, would love to see Billie compete more and also some new gear for Billie too would be fabulous!

  • Gayomi.

    I wonder who will win – the one who never loses to anyone or the one who always loses to everyone? zzzzzz

  • #ROSEARMY

    Iconic has a good thing going on but they need a side feud which establishes them as individually strong competitors and as a cohesive unit. I’d have branched out their rivalry with Ruby Riott (and throw in Dakota Kai) before transitioning into a title feud.

  • #FlairfortheGold

    Hey y’all, this is totally off topic, but please send your prayers to SoCal. It’s pretty horrible because of the intensive fires here and here at Santa Barbara, we are literally breathing all the ashes from the fire next door?

    • RadicallyRadic

      Yeah I heard things aren’t going well in that area of the states. Hope Miss Val is doing alright, and you too!

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Thanks!!

    • Like Mike

      Yeah I’m in Long Beach, but even out here I could smell the smokey air.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Omg you’re from SoCal too!!! Yea here at SB it’s gotten worse from the morning until now. My home as of now is about 15 minutes away from Carpinteria, where the fire reached just yesterday evening. Right now, we are literally covered in dust and petitioning University officials to cancel classes until further notice! It’s horrible rn

        • Like Mike

          That’s awful I’m sorry to hear it :/ I’m from Portland, Or. but I moved to SoCal this year.

      • Typical Heel

        Long Beach? That’s where I’ve been planning on moving to

        • Like Mike

          It’s pretty nice out here I’d recommend it. One of the cheaper to live beach towns in LA.

  • RadicallyRadic

    Odd how this article has got more comments than the actual discussion thread of the episode when people have been asking for discussion posts back for so long…

    • Like Mike

      I think it’s because they don’t have it on the front page headlines anymore.

      • RadicallyRadic

        But it is on the front page. Albeit its incredibly small, so maybe it’s just that. Making it more noticable for people to see who only go on the main front page.

    • Gayomi.

      they don’t promote discussion posts

      • RadicallyRadic

        They post on their social media about them and the Discussion Posts thing-oo on the main page is updated whenever a new discussion is made.

        Saying that though, they could DEFINITELY do a better job of making it more visible on the main page, especially when the shows are about to start,

    • Sofia Griffin

      To be fair, NXT and Impact have never gotten many comments compared to actual live shows but least discussion posts are kinda back?

  • eastcoast cam

    ember looks like she is changing up her look a bit and i’m here for it.

  • eastcoast cam

    i love iconic. but Billie needs to find a way to stand out. Peyton is definitely more over.

  • Randall
    • Gayomi.

      tragic

  • One of the Iconic’s deserve the title, both are championship material together.
