Recently, former WWE NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon was interviewed on “Busted Open Radio” to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Moon discussed Ruby Riott and Sonya Deville, Deville’s growth in the wrestling business, Riott’s path to WWE, and more. Here are the highlights:
If Ruby Riott and Sonya Deville have the biggest potential in WWE’s Women’s Division: “Oh yeah, 100 percent,” said Moon. “Other than myself of course [laughter]. I’ve shared a locker room with both of those girls in NXT. I was there for Sonya’s first day when she came in knowing nothing about what we did, even from Tough Enough.
Deville’s growing in professional wrestling: “To see how much she’s grown from where she started and how she’s come into her own…she hasn’t changed who she is depending on who’s around her,” Moon said. “She is who she is and that’s what you’re gonna get. A whole bunch of intensity, hard hits – I love her to death. I love watching her because something about her look just draws me in. I just wanna watch her.”
Riott’s path to WWE: “Ruby Riott – I’ve spent way too much time with,” said Moon. “I love her more than life itself. We’ve had a similar journey to being on the independent scene and being told that because of the way we looked, we weren’t going to get hired. Then going from that swing to this Women’s Evolution… It’s really cool – we have a very personal relationship because we tagged and wrestled on the indies. I love Ruby Riott to death and she deserves the world. I 100 percent agree with that [she has limitless potential].”
