Shoulder injury takes Ember Moon out of TakeOver: Chicago

Ember Moon reveals that an injury will prevent her from competing at NXT TakeOver: Chicago: Exclusive, May 8, 2017

A disappointed Ember Moon discusses her injury that will prevent her from challenging for Asuka's NXT Women's Championship on May 20 at Takeover: Chicago.

Ember Moon’s title opportunity against NXT Women’s Champion Asuka will have to wait.

Moon suffered a grade one shoulder sprain as a result of Asuka’s ambush during last week’s No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal and will not be able to compete at NXT TakeOver: Chicago on May 20, has learned. Doctors estimate that Moon will require four to five weeks to recover from the injury.

Along with Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross, Moon was scheduled to challenge Asuka in an NXT Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way Match in Chicago. NXT General Manager William Regal announced the title bout after Asuka crashed last week's No. 1 Contender's Battle Royal and brutalized the three finalists: Moon, Riot and Cross.

During the turmoil, The Empress of Tomorrow pushed Moon off the top turnbuckle before launching her through the ropes, causing Moon to fall hard on the floor. 

More details are expected to be released this Wednesday on NXT.
