Byrons Interviews

Mysterious, intriguing and ultra talented would be accurate descriptors for NXT’s Ember Moon, who created a well-deserved buzz for her successful debut against Billie Kay at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II. She opens up to WWE.com about joining the NXT Women’s division and the incredibly long road it took to finally make it to WWE.

WWE.COM: First off, happy birthday! Tell us what was it like for you to make your debut inside Barclays Center at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II?

EMBER MOON: Thank you! It was absolutely incredible and surreal. TakeOver: Brooklyn was a justification that everything I went through on the independents wasn’t for nothing. There were fun times and great times, but there were just as many bad ones. I had to fight my way for recognition and respect out there. Now, I’m starting all over again and I’m ready rise to the challenge.

WWE.COM: Although you made your TakeOver debut in Brooklyn, you actually signed with WWE in August 2015. What has it been like to hone your skills at the WWE Performance Center in preparation for your debut?

MOON: I was doing two to three times the amount of training just to burn off extra energy. I would get up at 5 a.m. and do a cardio session before going to the Performance Center. After our normal training session, I’d stay late just to get extra ring training. Then after I’d leave the Performance Center, I’d go back to the gym for another workout. I was determined to prove I belonged here in NXT.

WWE.COM: I understand you had a number of high-profile trainers prior to joining NXT?

MOON: My first trainer was General Skandor Akbar from World Class Championship Wrestling. I started to train with him in April 2007. I trained with Akbar Monday through Friday for about four to five hours each day. I learned the old-school way. I didn’t even touch a ring until a month and a half later, when he felt I earned my way into it. Before that, I would have to run down the side of the freeway in 100-degree weather, hoping that it would be the day I was able to get into the ring.

WWE.COM: How did it feel to finally step into the squared circle?

MOON: When that day finally came, I was ecstatic, but before I could leap for joy, I had to learn to endure the brute force of landing and being thrown around on concrete. Akbar made me appreciate everything I did in the ring. Right before Akbar’s school shut down, I actually ended up getting invited to train with former WWE Superstar Vance Archer. That’s where I learned a lot about power moves and strikes. I only trained with Vance once a week, but I used to go to the ring by myself for extra training two to three times each week. I loved the alone time. That’s when the ring became a home away from home.

WWE.COM: What led you to Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling?

MOON: After training with Vance, I drove five hours for a tryout and made the cuts to be part of Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling promotion in Houston. In addition to being able to work his shows, I received full access to his training facility. Booker was the one who helped me hone in on the high-flying aspect of my move set. Even though I was really comfortable in the ring, Booker gave me the confidence and motivation that I really needed to succeed in the wrestling world. Booker even suggested that I try to broaden my training by traveling around the world.

WWE.COM: And you followed his advice?

MOON: Yes, I traveled and I ended up meeting former WWE Superstars Rodney Mack and Jazz. They were phenomenal people. Jazz mostly taught me to not be afraid to break barriers and be different. After that, I drifted on my own, learning whenever and wherever I could. I traveled across the United States, Canada and Mexico to wrestle.

How will he truly feel when as good as he is and with as many sacrifices he made when he finds out that Sheamus is truly . . . better.
