Ember Moon Talks About her Shoulder Injury, Returning to Action, More

NXT superstar Ember Moon recently spoke with WWE.com about returning to action on NXT TV against Peyton Royce in a singles match after suffering a shoulder injury at the April 19th NXT TV tapings during the #1 contenders battle royal. Here are the highlights. 

On Returning To Action:
“I feel like I’ve lifted a huge weight off my back. I’ve always known that every time you step into that ring, you run a huge risk of getting seriously injured. I’m just relieved my shoulder is 100 percent and I’m back in the mix.”
On Her Injury:
“When I hit the barricade, I knew that I was hurt. I heard something pop in my shoulder and I initially thought it was my collarbone. The pain didn’t hit until I rolled over onto my back. I remember telling myself that it hurts, but it won’t be too bad. As soon as the medical trainers tried to move me, I realized that it was worse than I thought. I remember literally hitting the floor with my hand, realizing that I was probably going to miss NXT Takeover: Chicago.”
On Rehab:
“The first two weeks after the injury, I was mostly only allowed to rest. Resting was the hardest part because I’m used to being in the game, I’m used to being at the WWE Performance Center six hours a day, training and working on getting better. After two weeks, I was able to get more aggressive with electrotherapy and light weight-training. I would start with two pounds and then bump up to five pounds, then 10 pounds, etc. It got to a point that instead of training six hours of day, I was doing therapy for six hours a day.”
