Ember Moon Reveals How Her WWE NXT Return Happened

She returned to the black-and-gold brand at NXT TakeOver 31

Ember Moon has revealed that Triple H organised her return to NXT after she asked him if she could be back on the black-and-gold brand. 

Moon returned to NXT at TakeOver 31 after 14-month absence due to injury, having previously been a part of the Smackdown roster. 

Time away from the ring gave Moon a chance to think about what she wanted and asked Triple H for a meeting, who was only too happy to have her back on NXT. 

Speaking to GiveMeSport, she said: "I started just looking and I was like, I don't know if I fit in on RAW, I don't know if I fit in on SmackDown - but NXT that's someplace I fit in.

“So I went and I had a meeting and I just told him [Triple H] how I felt. And he was just like, 'Okay, if this is something you really want to do, F-yeah, I would love to have you back. But we got to see, because we all know that they really love you up there’.

“Honestly, the first phone call I made, it wasn't to my husband, it wasn't to any of my friends - It was to Triple H.”

Having spoken to the NXT executive producer, Moon had to wait while Triple H sought permission to bring Moon back to his division. Once they had it, she set about producing her new character with the NXT creative team.

She added: "I got a text from Triple H saying 'Welcome home. We got you back'. And I was like, 'Yes, I'm coming back baby,' and so I ended up staying an extra week filming all these vignettes because they asked what do you want to do?

“I really want to do this Mad Max thing. Make some video game stuff and let's just kind of rebrand Ember Moon as me outside of the crazy red eyes and the werewolf vampire screams and everything like that, let's just make me, me.

“I poured my heart into it, because I thought about it for so long. And the creative team just made it work."
