“The more and more I sit back and look at everything I’ve done and what I would redo, I think more about my injury currently and realizing that I may have a career-ending injury,” Moon said. 

“I’m coming back from the hardest injury and I might not have a chance to redeem myself of all the things I wanted to do and all the things I want to do in my future. It’s so hard to think back in regret when I try to look forward.”

The injury occurred in September 2019, during a segment with R-Truth (Ron Killings), Carmella (Leah Van Dale). In pursuit of the 24/7 championship belt, Carmella won the night before. Moon says the injury occurred backstage when she had to stop suddenly to keep from colliding with the duo.

Moon appeared on Booker T’s podcast “Hall of Fame” the following January to detail the incident.

“We do the run through and I told Truth, I was like, ‘Truth, you better run, I’m gonna catch you, Truth. If I catch you, I’m tackling you and you’re going down.’ And so when we actually did it, I literally caught them right before we went through the curtain,” she said. “So they go through the curtain and they didn’t realize how close I was behind them. As I’m coming through, the curtain shuts, I open it, go through. Truth is dropping Carmella and I’m going full speed and I had to hit the brakes. I was just like, ‘whoah,’ BOOM, and I felt a pop.”

We wish Ember Moon the best of luck in her recovery. In the meantime, stay with The Illuminerdi for all manner of WWE news and features.
