Ember Moon recently appeared on the Sky Sports Lock Up podcast to talk about a wide range of topics. The former NXT Women’s Champion talked about being called up after a successful run in NXT to make her debut on their flagship show, Monday Night RAW, on the April 9, 2018 episode, which was the night after WrestleMania 34.
“I’m still getting there and I’m still looking for that highest high. When I got moved to Raw I felt like there was still a lot for me to do on NXT. It was a very overwhelming surprise when I got drafted. Triple H told me after my match at Takeover how well I’d done and I thought I was about to get fired but I got sent to Raw.”
Moon continued by stating that it felt like she was starting over and that every chance she got, she took advantage of it despite it being rushed as it’s hard to grab everything at once and it’s about being patient and seizing the right opportunity.
Moon was also asked about how fans reacted to her run in the WWE Evolution Battle Royal, which she responded by stating that she never expected the fans to react the way that they did by chanting her name. She brought up how she has always gone out there and done her own jam whether they like her or not.
“So that was the most overwhelming feeling I’ve had since I’ve been on Raw. I had that with Asuka at Takeover that people loved me but it’s been starting all over and baby steps on Raw.”
