NXT Star Considered Retirement Last Year

A WWE NXT star has opened up about a recent big championship win and how they almost retired from wrestling last year.

This past Wednesday saw Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez crowned the first ever NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, but they lost the title later in the night to Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart.

Moon took to Instagram with an emotional post recalling the win, writing:

It’s taken me a few days to process this. Last year around this time I was thinking I would never enter ring again and was considering retiring. And now I can call myself champion again. 2 years 11months since the last time I held gold. And I am doing it with someone I truly consider a sister, @shotziblackheart . She has been there to lift me up , to make me laugh, have my back, and even hold me back when I was wrong. Shotzi makes me want to be soo much better as a person and a performer. We are 2 peas in a smoke filled tank. I love ya ttp. For the first time in a long time I am having fun and my passion has been reignited on entirely different level. Thank you @tripleh! This is only the beginning… and I am soo thankful to be HOME at NXT! #WelcomeToTheFirePit #andnew #NXTTagTeamChampions #TCBWEL #EmberIsNXT

The win makes Moon the first woman to ever hold the NXT Women’s Championship as well as the tag team title.
