Speculation has run rampant for weeks, but Ember Moon has now confirmed that her shoulder is hurt — and WWE reports that she’ll no longer be wrestling at NXT Takeover: Chicago.
“There’s no Takeover: Chicago for me. I’m out,” Moon said in a video posted by WWE Monday afternoon. WWE also reports that she sustained a grade one shoulder sprain.
Rumors of Moon’s injury began after the last set of NXT tapings when images of Moon in a sling emerged after she landed hard on the floor during an ambush from Asuka. However, this has been the first confirmation that she will be off of the show and out four to five weeks.
No official word as to whether she’ll be replaced in the upcoming match or if it’s now a triple threat. As for Moon, she remains hopeful. “When I get back, I’m going to be better than ever.”
