During last Tuesday’s  NXT episode, Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon defeated Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez to become the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.

A few days ago, Ember Moon took to Instagram to reveal that last year around this time she was considering retiring from the ring.

Moon posted, “It’s taken me a few days to process this. Last year around this time I was thinking I would never enter ring again and was considering retiring. And now I can call myself champion again. 2 years 11months since the last time I held gold. And I am doing it with someone I truly consider a sister, @shotziblackheart . She has been there to lift me up , to make me laugh, have my back, and even hold me back when I was wrong. Shotzi makes me want to be soo much better as a person and a performer. We are 2 peas in a smoke filled tank. I love ya ttp. For the first time in a long time I am having fun and my passion has been reignited on entirely different level. Thank you @tripleh! This is only the beginning… and I am soo thankful to be HOME at NXT!”

It was in September 2019 when she tore her Achilles tendon during a WWE 24/7 Title chase segment. Ember Moon wouldn’t make her return until WWE NXT at TakeOver 31 on  October 4, 2020.
