Ember Moon is reportedly not injured.
As noted, Moon was set to face Sarray in last Tuesday’s WWE NXT opener but it was announced earlier that afternoon that she was unable to compete. WWE did not provide many details as their announcement stated that Moon was “declared unable to compete by the NXT Medical Staff” earlier in the day. Moon was replaced by Dakota Kai, who won the match. It was reported later in the week that Moon was out with an issue that was “not too serious.”
In an update, Moon has been recovering from a dental procedure, according to Fightful Select. This procedure is what kept her from getting cleared for last week’s match.
It was noted that Moon was willing to work, despite the dental procedure and not being cleared for action. Moon was backstage for last week’s NXT TV taping.
There is no word on when Moon will be cleared to compete, but we will keep you updated.
Moon last wrestled during the July 13 NXT episode, when she took a loss to Kai.
Stay tuned for more.
.@wwenxt This has been an extremely rough month, I am angry and gutted! I was really looking forward to this match and getting back on track but just got another pothole in the road. I'm sorry! https://t.co/ZcX0hPqII2
