Ember Moon To Challenge Asuka for the NXT Womens Championship at NXT Takeover: Orlando (March, 9th 2017)
The Streak of the Continually Dominant NXT Women’s Champion Asuka is On the Line Again on April 1st, as per this weeks episode of WWE NXT, General Manager William Regal has certified fellow dominant performer Ember Moon’s Status as the Contender to the NXT Women’s Championship, following a victory over one of Asuka’s former contenders, Billie Kay.
While Asuka has defended against multiple opponents on Pay Per View while also defeating imposing, powerful challengers such as Nia Jax and gone over some of NXTs most well rounded stars such as Emma and Bayley, one thing strikes different about Asuka’s upcoming challenger, the Branded “War Goddess” Ember Moon, who, like her fellow SHIMMER Alumni, has come into NXT with no pinfall losses. Moon has overcome every challenger possible since arriving on the scene at NXT Takeover Brooklyn II, including fellow NXT Stars Liv Morgan and Daria Berenato, and the continual victories for Ember has clearly impressed NXTs GM, thus, in agreement with Asuka, has given Ember Moon her one title shot against the Longest Reigning NXT Women’s Champion who failed to acknowledge her first challenge made at NXT Takeover San Antonio until now.
Whose Streak Will Be Closed and Will a New Era Arise for the NXT Womens Division? All that will be answered as NXT brings its expanding roster to the Home Base of Orlando for NXT Takeover Orlando, Airing April 1st Live on the WWE Network at 1am UK Time.
