Ember Moon def. Liv Morgan
ORLANDO, Fla. — While NXT Women’s Champion Asuka has three challengers awaiting her in San Antonio, the rest of the division is jockeying for the chance to be next in line to challenge The Empress of Tomorrow. Last week, good friends Ember Moon and Liv Morgan both expressed their hopes of stepping up and going after the coveted title. This week, they stepped into the ring to square off and show who was truly ready.
Morgan used her unbelievable agility to keep Moon off-balance, but the stiff striking ability of Moon turned the tides of the bout. The feisty New Jersey native tried her best to stay on Moon, but Ember used her strength advantage to toss Morgan over the ropes to the arena floor. NXT’s War Goddess followed up by connecting with a devastating Eclipse to seal the victory and move one step closer toward the NXT Women’s Championship.
