Ember is patiently waiting on her opportunity.
"The Shenom" Ember Moon has now been on WWE's main roster for eight months. Throughout her time on the red-brand she has been a part of a few feuds, competed in a Women's Money In The Bank Ladder match but has yet to be put in position to challenge for a championship. Ember does feel the hunger she had coming from her NXT Women's Title reign lingering over her shoulders but she is being patient about everything.
Ember guest appeared on the Sky Sports 'Lock Up' podcast and told them that she wants to wrestle Ronda Rousey, Sasha Banks and others but she is waiting on that opportunity to arrive but not in a complacent context.
“But it was such a cool, overwhelming experience when I got to Monday Night RAW, and I feel like that was started all over, and it’s a lot of hurry up and wait, and every opportunity that I’ve been given, or have earned here, I’ve taken advantage of it and knocked it out of the park every single time so is there is a rush? Yes, there’s always a rush. There’s always a want to have more. I want to wrestle Ronda Rousey. I want to wrestle Nia Jax, I want… there’s so many… I wanna wrestle Sasha and Bayley and there’s so many I want, I want, I want but it’s hard to try and grab everything at once so it’s all about being patient and just seizing the right opportunity at the right time." Ember detailed. "So, am I a little more laid back? I have to be. I have to be a lot more on the watchful side of things. But, I always snap, I’m always there. Whenever I need to be I’m there so, waiting? Yes, but it’s very much so a hurry and wait for me.”
During Ember's time in NXT she had a series of highly regarded matches with the once-undefeated Asuka. Moon reflected on her feud with "The Empress Of Tomorrow" and stated that she still wants the chance to beat Asuka via pinfall. Ember did throw Asuka out of the 'Evolution' battle royal two weeks ago but that was not enough for the WWE RAW star.
“So my dream opponent would actually be Beth Phoenix but that is the ultimate dream but as far as Asuka goes she’s my biggest rival - I’ve said it time and time again. She’s on my list." Ember continued, "I’m like Arya from Game Of Thrones - I’m just like, ‘Ooo’, like circling it and engraving it. ‘Asuka’, and then just go to sleep like I’m knocked out. But I’d love another crack at her. I would love to have another match just to prove that I can beat her and to have another great rivalry with my best friend-worst enemy, but you know, it’s… it kind of stinks because we’re on different brands right now but who knows. Hopefully soon, I’ll see her in the Rumble. That would be great, hopefully. Like I said she’s one of my best friends, my worst enemies, but yeah I would love another crack at Asuka. Just throwing her over at the Evolution battle royal wasn’t enough for me." Ember said. "I want those shoulders on the mat like one, two, three. That’s what I want, I need that.”
Ember Moon and Asuka may have the chance to clash once again at Survivor Series. Alexa Bliss is in "charge" of selecting the members of Team RAW's women's Survivor Series team and Ember Moon is on the list of options.
