Ember Moon def. Lei’D Tapa
ORLANDO, Fla. — Ember Moon made a statement both physically and verbally, picking up another impressive victory before challenging Asuka to an NXT Women’s Championship Match at TakeOver: Brooklyn III.
Moon faced a substantial challenge in Lei’D Tapa, who possessed a distinct size and strength advantage. The former football player and MMA grappler came out of the gate quickly, plowing through Moon. However, Moon fired back with her highlight-reel offense, punctuated by the spectacular Eclipse for the win.
Following the contest, Moon made her intentions clear, demanding a rematch against Asuka in Brooklyn on Saturday, Aug. 19. Later in the evening General Manager William Regal granted Moon her wish and made the match official. Is The Empress of Tomorrow ready for Ember Moon?
