Moon last competed on the October 5 episode of NXT 2.0 in a match against Mandy Rose.

Signed by WWE in 2015, Ember made her NXT debut that October under the name of Adrienne Reese. She debuted her new ring name in June of 2016. Just over one year later, Moon would win the vacant NXT Women’s Championship. She would hold the title from November 2017 all the way until her main roster call up following NXT TakeOver: New Orleans in April 2018.

Though her nearly two years on Raw and SmackDown didn’t see any championship victories, Moon was a staple of the women’s division, doing everything from the Royal Rumble to an analyst role on WWE Backstage.

She returned to NXT in October 2020 and a mere five months later was a Tag Team Champion alongside Shotzi Blackheart. Their reign lasted 55 days and their pairing was also cut short when Shotzi moved to WWE main roster.

Moon was among multiple releases made by WWE on Thursday. You can view the full list by clicking here.
