Ember Moon has been out of action since September and it is known that her injury is to her Achilles. She has already announced previously on WWE Backstage that she feels that it may be career-ending. She spoke recently with comicbook to give an update and a more in-depth explanation of her injury.
“It’s been an up and down hill for me. A lot of people don’t know this – they think I just have a very generic Achilles rupture, but I don’t. What actually happened is that [my Achilles tendon] got split in half and then it also got torn off the bone. So I actually ruptured my Achilles in two places, and the surgeon thinks that I may have been wrestling on it for probably about two months already torn to some extent, and I just didn’t feel the pain because I have kind of a high pain tolerance.”
As far as a date for her return, it is still in question and unknown at this time. The severity of the injury is making it hard to have a certain date and with the recent COVID quarantine, it did take some time away from her therapy.
“It’s just a very, very long process and I would love, love, love to have a date back on the board but it’s up in the air.” She continues, “I’m sitting here and I’m fighting a second surgery. I’m fighting against the second surgery. That’s how bad it is. When I went on Backstage and I said, ‘I don’t know if I’m ever going to wrestle again,’ I meant what I said and I, I stand by that.”
Moon says she was very emotional when she talked about her status on WWE Backstage as it does weigh on her mind. She further speaks to comicbook about who has been helping her and how that has made her have hope for the future.
“I was still very much so in my feelings about it to the point where I cried on international television and I’m so ashamed, but sometimes you need that outlet sometimes to say those things, because like people like Mark [Henry], people like Booker, even the boss man, Triple H has been checking up on me. Another person from the company that is a legend reached out and was trying to help me out with rehab options and stuff like that. Honestly like what has made the biggest difference thus far because everything that they’ve said has been helping so much more than me just doing the normal situation because of that complication.”
“So yeah, like there is a light, it is getting better. I just don’t have a timeframe and I don’t know when.”
