At NXT TakeOver: War Games, Ember Moon became just the sixth woman to win the NXT Women’s Championship when she defeated Kairi Sane, Nikki Cross, and Peyton Royce in a Fatal 4-Way match.

In an interview with WWE.com, Moon reflects back on her big win and reveals her biggest goal as the new champion.

On winning the NXT Women’s Title in her home state of Texas: “It meant the world to me to win the title in Texas. My dad looked like he was going to jump the barricade when I won. Texas is where I got my start. Even though I am I from Dallas, Texas, I originally got the start of my wrestling career notoriety in Austin and Houston, so it was a huge honor to go back and win in front of what I consider to be one of my wrestling hometowns.”

Her relationship with Asuka: “Asuka and I started the exact same day at the WWE Performance Center, and though our paths were different, they always seem to intertwine. We used to travel together and encourage each other to be better in and out of the ring. It was awesome to have her show that much respect by presenting me the NXT Women’s Championship and celebrate our mutual love for wrestling in the middle of the ring.”

Her goal as NXT Women’s Champion: “My goal now is to become the longest-reigning champion in NXT history. I wasn’t able to end Asuka’s undefeated streak, but I can break her record for the longest-reigning Women’s Champion in NXT. I want to prove that my myth is a legend rising and forever solidify my place in WWE history.”

What did you think of the interview? Who would you like to see Ember Moon feud with? Do you think she’ll be able to surpass Asuka’s record setting reign as NXT Women’s Champion? Let us know in the comments below!

  • ???

    Definitely well deserved! I’m really happy that she won the title , I want her to feud with newer girls like Bianca and Dakota Kai !

    But I don’t agree about her breaking Asuka’s title reign , we don’t need another undefeated champion even Ember will not benefit from it because she already lost to Asuka .

    • Danny?

      Ember is pretty much undefeated already in that she has only lost to Asuka. She’s not undefeated but she still looks untouchable & I’m not here for it.

      • Wicked Emma

        Why?

        • Danny?

          Because Asuka was undefeated already & I don’t want Ember to be the same way cause we have literally just had the same story so what is the point… Ember is no Asuka & do we reallly need to see every woman on the roster loosing to Ember now instead of Asuka cause everyone complained enough about Asuka never loosing but Ember? Really?!

    • IconicTrio

      I’ve got high hopes for Binky Blair, VERY high hopes.

      I sound like a sleazy casting couch director but oh well.

    • Wicked Emma

      Bianca Blair needs more in ring work.

  • Issac Gore

    I want her to have a lengthy title run but I dont see it lasting as long as Asuka’s reign, but I’m looking forward to all the various feuds she can have with all the Mae Young Classic ladies debuting. Just dont let her loose it to Shayna.

  • Danny?

    HELL TO THE NO!!! There is no need for Ember to have that long a title run especially after Asuka just held the title that long.

  • Randall

    I don’t want to see another title run that damn long.

  • Organization XIII

    Absolutely Not! Too many talented women to go thru another long reign. That was the problem we had with AJ & Nikki’s reign

  • IconicTrio

    With a girl who’s as good in ring as Ember Moon but so terribly dull, why didn’t they have her debut more sinister instead of having her jump around? And couldn’t they have kept mystique by having her not talk?

    I feel like she’s been done an injustice already, as much as I hate to be negative.

    • Maddox

      Like Aleistar Black?

      • Wicked Emma

        Aliester Black isn’t bad

        • Maddox

          Yea I actually think his character would have fit her

          • Wicked Emma

            I disagree

      • IconicTrio

        Yes actually.

        I was thinking more like a sting character. Like a sinister lady lurking around.

    • Wicked Emma

      Ember isn’t dull.

      • IconicTrio

        To me she is. There’s no depth to her character. Not that its Adrienne’s fault but she is not a good speaker and the creative haven’t adapted well to that.

        Its not rocket science. I genuinely believe any one of us could do a better job of it all.

        • Wicked Emma

          I disagree

          • IconicTrio

            Fair enough.

    • B J

      I think she should have been more of a heel character with a non talking role much like Awesome Kong.

      • IconicTrio

        Perhaps not even heel but like anti face. She really should have been like Ruby only she never spoke? did what was right but never signified allegiance or frienship with the likes of Liv or Aliyah?

        Now they have put mcrophones in front of her she just seems like an athletic chick. Charlotte and Naomi kind of cornered that market already I’m afraid.

    • wysna

      I have to agree as much as I love Ember. I remember her first interview; it was a real mess even though she was talking clearly. She’s not as quick witted as a lot of the other girls but she does make up for her weaknesses with her in ring work so, yes, I agree. She should’ve been given a non-speaking role for now. They should’ve tapped the wolf-like nuances that they had her working with.

  • conan_kun

    I’m afraid they let Ember lose the title to Shayna then Shayna got long ass title run.

    • Gerg

      I see the same happening so they can build Shayna up for the rumor Horsemen tag

    • Wicked Emma

      I hope not.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Girl no just no! I hate those long ass title reigns.

    • Marshy

      It doesn’t give someone else a chance to win and hold the title. There are other women wrestlers who would like to win and hold the NXT Women’s Championship title before they go on the main roster.

  • I was a huge fan of Asuka’s historic title reign, but we don’t need another one so soon. I honestly hope Ember looses it at TakeOver in April or the next one.

    • Wicked Emma

      Why?

  • Jonny

    I’d rather have a healthy, non-hot potato back and forth of title changes between Ember/Iconic Duo and possibly Cross honestly to keep the division surprising and fresh. It’s needed after Asuka’s reign.

  • Ofc we won’t have it and we shouldn’t. Long reigns are never good for the division, they kill the competition.

    I’m thinking who’s gonna dethrone her. I think Kairi, and if she does I’mma need Bianca to beat her then.

    • eastcoast cam

      i’m not interested in seeing kairi as a champ for awhile. she is fairly new to the division and lots of other women are deserving. i wouldn’t mind bianca though.

      • Kvngbalor

        And Kairi is a bore im ready for a heel champion who has charisma who can talk we haven’t had that since Sasha in NXT

        • eastcoast cam

          i’m so glad i’m not the only one who thought so. i have no interest in kairi whatsoever. i totally agree! time for a heel champ for sure.

          • Kvngbalor

            Not one bit she bores me i want more Bianca, Rhea Ripley & Dakota

          • Wicked Emma

            I agree about Rhea and Dakota.

        • Wicked Emma

          How is Kairi boring?

      • I agree. I’m interested in watching Kairi wrestle– which btw I’m still surprised Sarah Logan got called up before the actual winner of the MYC– and I’m as excited for Bianca as I was about Sasha when she first got called up to the main roster. Love her!

    • Wicked Emma

      Bianca needs more work.
      Thanks hope Kairi Sane wins the title next.

  • Omar Zaal

    Been a fan of Ember since her Texas days. Might be on of the best female wrestler in the world.

  • The Wicked Bitch

    Oh no girl I love you but I ain’t gonna sit through a whole year long title reign again

  • #FlairfortheGold

    I find her character beyond booorriing so no thank you to longest reigning champ. She better lose it to Peyton, Billie, or Kairi by April at least….If Shayna wins it, I’m out of this bitch…

    • Wicked Emma

      Ember Is not boring
      I agree about Shayna.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        In ring, absolutely not. Character, yes

  • Maddox

    How I have seen every NXT women’s champ

    Paige – Anti diva (Rebel)
    Charlotte – Elegant
    Sasha Banks – Flamboyant
    Bayley – Loveable
    Asuka – Unbeatable
    Ember – Mys….?

    Every NXT women’s champ brought something different. I feel someone like Peyton or Nikki would have been brought something different character wise or atleast they should have built up Embers mystique character more

  • eastcoast cam

    huge ember fan! i really do love her but with that being said. the last thing i want is another long reign. it does nothing for the division. i do predict that she will become the first ever 2 time NXT Women’s champion. you heard it here first! but hard pass on another long reign. i want peyton to have a reign before she goes to the main roster.

  • eastcoast cam

    i’m predicting a heel turn from ember. just to give her character a little more depth.

    • Wicked Emma

      Ember doesn’t need to turn heel.

  • Jo9834

    A super long reign means she won’t be on the MR for at least two years, which I don’t see happening. They will call her up next year or early 2019 at the absolute latest. Asuka’s reign will not be repeated.

  • Kvngbalor

    I hope not … We don’t need another long reign

    • Wicked Emma

      I kinda of see what you’re saying.

  • Buffyrocks

    I don’t want Ember to have a long reign just because I am selfish and want her on the main roster within a year or so. The matches that she will have against any of the 4HW, Paige, Natalya, Naomi, or Mickie, or repeat performances with Asuka and Ruby… it is a good time to be a women’s wrestling fan!

    Also, I don’t find Ember boring at all. She’s mysterious and dresses like a warrior. That’s her schtick. I’m fine with it. Sometimes I think people equate “bitchy heel persona” with “only thing that is entertaining.” Call me crazy, but I actually don’t want the entire women’s division of WWE/NXT to be a watered down version of Housewives of Beverly Hills. ¯_(?)_/¯

    • Wicked Emma

      Lol at the version if housewives of Beverly hills.

  • Juelez

    I hope not. Yes she’s good in ring but that’s all she brings. I’m not to fond of her mic work I really think they fucked Peyton over by not having her win. In my eyes she put in more work than the others currently and I’m not even a big fan of hers. Next to bianca and Vanessa there isn’t anyone in nxt that screams at me. ?????

    • Wicked Emma

      Ember Moon is not bad on the mic.

      • Juelez

        I said what I said

        • Wicked Emma

          And I said what I said. Anything else you would like to say?

  • Wicked Emma

    Ember Moon is awesome.

  • Ember it’s amazing but please don’t, we don’t need another long reign, hope Iconic Duo dethrone her, those two are next in the line.

  • Geo14

    Sasha was the last interesting champion (character wise).

    Bayley, Asuka, Ember and Kairi have awful mic skills. Even the Natalya’s cat has more charisma than them.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    I love her <3

  • brimode

    I can’t think of anything worse.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Please no. I don’t want to see another two year reign. Peyton Royce should win the title!

  • Can’tGetNo…Stratusfaction

    Nope. Why does every NXT women’s champion have to be champion until they leave the brand? Seriously, Bayley and Sasha probably had the best reigns with the title. At least they were consistently featured. NXT needs to go back to storytelling as opposed to just booking title matches.

  • Wicked Bliss

    Asuka killed Ember’s momentum and now being her as a champion is a meh. She should have won the first!/second time she faced Asuka. Now I want Iconic Duo to snatch that title before Bianca or Shaina go after the title.

  • Glitter Bliss Banks

    I don’t mean to sounds harsh but I there is not way in hell I could stomach Ember beating Auska’s record reign and holding the title for that long! It was getting lackluster with Asuka. I’m here however with good, Detailed and strong rivalries for her though with The Iconic Duo, Nikki Cross, Bianca Bel Air and Shayna. Strong and constant contenders that keep Ember on her feet will strengthen her role as champion and build up her credibility!.

    It’s only fair she is the current champion and gets her time, it was coming and it was gonna happen and I’m intrigued for her and happy for her that she got her crowning moment in front of her home turf and family, it doesn’t get much better than that!
