If NXT Women’s Champion Asuka wasn’t yet taking the challenge of Ember Moon seriously, she should be now.

Three weeks away from their title match at TakeOver: Brooklyn III, Moon confronted The Empress of Tomorrow after Asuka reiterated nobody is ready for her — including Moon. Asuka faked out Moon with a handshake before slapping her, roundhouse-kicking her in the cranium and throwing her to the floor. Moon sprang back into the fight, however, scaling the ropes and nailing Asuka with the Eclipse to leave the champion down and out for the first time in her storied NXT career.

With the NXT Women’s Title within reach, Moon appeared tempted to pick up the prize, but ultimately resisted, telling NXT fans that she would hold the championship when she earns it. Will Aug. 19 be the day?
