WWE's Ember Moon Considered Retirement Last Year
She returned last October
Ember Moon has revealed she was considering retiring from professional wrestling around this time last year as a result of her injuries.
Moon sustained a torn Achilles tendon in September 2019 during a 24/7 Championship segment, and did not return to television until she made her NXT comeback at NXT TakeOver 31 in October 2020.
The superstar has since returned to win the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships with Shotzi Blackheart and taken to social media to reveal how much she is currently enjoying herself in WWE.
With her post on Instagram, Moon also admitted there was a time when she was thinking about retiring.
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!"
