Ember Moon Fighting Against Second Surgery, May Have Wrestled Two Months On Torn Achilles

Ember Moon has already come out and said that her career might be over due to an Achilles injury suffered in September 2019. The injury occurred on Raw during a chase for the 24/7 Title.

The extent of the injury isn't just an Achilles tear or rupture, her Achilles was split in half and torn off the bone, which has led to complications as she works towards a return.

"So I actually ruptured my Achilles in two places, and the surgeon thinks that I may have been wrestling on it for probably about two months already torn to some extent, and I just didn't feel the pain because I have kind of a high pain tolerance," Ember told Comic Book.

Moon went on to say that there was a return date in mind, but that has been delayed due to complications with strength building.

"It's just a very, very long process and I would love, love, love to have a date back on the board but it's up in the air. I'm sitting here and I'm fighting a second surgery. I'm fighting against the second surgery. That's how bad it is," she said. When I went on Backstage and I said, 'I don't know if I'm ever going to wrestle again,' I meant what I said and I, I stand by that."

It was on WWE Backstage where she discussed the possibility that her career might be over due to the injury.

"I was so in my feelings [on WWE Backstage] 'cause I just found out about the complications like, the day before," she said. "I was still very much so in my feelings about it to the point where I cried on international television and I'm so ashamed, but sometimes you need that outlet sometimes to say those things, because like people like Mark [Henry], people like Booker, even the boss man, Triple H has been checking up on me. Another person from the company that is a legend reached out and was trying to help me out with rehab options and stuff like that. Honestly like what has made the biggest difference thus far because everything that they've said has been helping so much more than me just doing the normal situation because of that complication. So yeah, like there is a light, it is getting better. I just don't have a timeframe and I don't know when."

Ember did sound optimistic at the end of the interview, saying 2019 was not her year but she trusts her work athletic and believes this setback will be a stepping stone on her path to greatness.
