NXT Superstar Ember Moon recently spoke with ESPN UK about her career and more. Here are the highlights.
On her character being close to her true self:
“I definitely feel that I am as mysterious as [my character]. At the end of the day, if [my choices are] to go shopping or stay in the house in a secluded corner, I would much rather stay in the house and play some video games. [NXT] made me larger than life and I love that they incorporated who I am and my passions as far as medieval times and mysterious things of that matter. That’s pretty much who I am as a person. [Ember Moon] is me dialed up to like a billion.”
On watching wrestlers like Chyna, Ivory, Victoria, Lita and Trish Stratus when she was growing up:
“I was like, ‘I can do this. I want to do this.’ What they believed in and how they showed they were physically able to do this. All these fantastic superstars that showed all this passion and emotion but they stood up for themselves. That’s the one thing that I wanted to do as someone who was constantly getting beaten down. I thought, ‘Man, I just have to stand up one time,’ and that was me taking my step into the wrestling world.”
