Ember Moon and Ruby Riot jockey for position in NXT’s Women’s division
Now that Ember Moon has fully recovered from a shoulder injury caused by The Empress of Tomorrow, she's wasted no time picking up where she left off, earning an impressive victory over Peyton Royce in Moon’s first match back on the June 21 episode of NXT. Meanwhile, Ruby Riot has been wreaking havoc in the thick of the Women’s division for months now, but has yet to challenge the titleholder in a one-on-one contest.
While Moon was talking about her NXT Women’s Title aspirations with reporters two weeks ago, Riot overhead and took exception, interrupting the media scrum to remind Moon and everyone listening that she hasn’t gotten her turn yet at the coveted title.
Tonight at 8/7C on WWE Network, Moon and Riot will battle to see who is, in fact, more deserving of a NXT Women’s Title opportunity. The result clearly could go a long way in helping decide who challenges the undefeated titleholder next.
