Athena Says She Has No Idea What WWE Wanted Her Ember Moon Character To Be


Former WWE Superstar Athena (Ember Moon) recently did a virtual meet & greet for the Asylum Wrestling Store and commented on her character in WWE.

According to Athena, WWE had several ideas for her character but they never came to fruition. She said,


“I don’t know what Ember was supposed to be. I think a lot of the times they were like, ‘Oh, she’s a witch, she’s a vampire, she’s a werewolf, she’s an assassin in the dark.’ There were so many different ideas being thrown out but I remember actually planning a whole werewolf outfit at one point in time. It was like, ‘Okay, we got the mask, we got this, we had gear to match. We started putting on ratty fur and stuff, and like, something happened and then that got changed to something else.’ I don’t know, but at one point in time, I think Ember was supposed to be a werewolf.”

She continued, “A lot of the masks and stuff that I wore at NXT, they were modeled after wolf skulls and stuff. They’re plastic, don’t get me PETA. But they were modeled after wolf skulls so I wanted to do kind of an ode to that after I got back to NXT. That was kind of my, ‘Alright, I’m going to make this a werewolf today.’”
