Ember Moon opens up about her position in WWE.
It is coming up on a full year since "The Shenom" and former NXT Women's Champion Ember Moon debuted on the main roster. Moon has been a part of both Women's Royal Rumble matches, a Women's Money In The Bank Ladder match and worked the majority of WWE live events to date since she's been on the main roster.
Although Ember is regularly featured on WWE TV, she does feel that she is lost in the shuffle because of the ever-growing women's division and with Ronda Rousey leading the charge, Women's Tag Team Titles and history making matches, it is easy for her to get caught in the middle of all that and she spoke more detail about this while guest appearing on Busted Open Radio with David LaGreca and Bully Ray. Bully asked Ember if she feels WWE is utilizing her to the best of her potential and she responded with the following:
“I think right now with everyone… I guess with Tag Titles coming up and Ronda Rousey and, maybe I’m getting lost in the shuffle a little bit, but every time I step in the ring it’s an opportunity that I try to take to enhance myself that, if I’m in a match with twelve other people, the last [thing] they’ll [fans] remember is, ‘Oh man, did you see what Ember Moon did?’ So, I take that opportunity amongst myself and I rise to every challenge.” She said.
Ember Moon further elaborated by adding that with the additions of Nikki Cross and Lacey Evans, the women's roster gets bigger which cuts down the number of people that can peak their heads through the window of opportunity all at once. Ember spoke to that and added that it is easy to get lost in the shuffle but it is on her to stand out from the rest.
“Definitely, definitely [It is easy to get lost in the shuffle]. You have so many superstars that have been here I guess way longer than I have and you have a lot more coming in with Lacey Evans and Nikki Cross -- not knowing which brand that they’re going to. Of course it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle." Ember said. "It’s my goal not to be content and to keep pushing forward and keep pushing through and feeling every match… like I said, if you look at an Ember Moon match, regardless of who’s in, my goal [is for people to] say, ‘Aw man, did you see what Ember did’?”
