Ember Moon joins Team Shotzi for NXT TakeOver: WarGames


Ember Moon will officially be on Team Shotzi at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.

WWE posted a video today confirming that Moon will be one of Shotzi Blackheart's partners in this year's women's WarGames match. Blackheart, Moon, and two partners will face Team Candice (Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez & Toni Storm) in WarGames.

Storm turned heel by attacking Moon on last week's episode of NXT. Storm acted like she was coming to Moon's aid, but she then attacked Moon and threw her into the ring so LeRae, Kai, and Gonzalez could beat her down.

It appears that Blackheart and Moon's partners for WarGames will be NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai and Rhea Ripley. Team Candice laid out Shirai and attacked Ripley on last week's NXT.

On NXT this Wednesday, Blackheart is facing Gonzalez to determine which team will get the entrance order advantage in WarGames.

NXT TakeOver: WarGames is taking place next Sunday (December 6). Here's the updated card for the show:

  • WarGames match: Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish) vs. Team McAfee (Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch)
  • WarGames match: Team Shotzi (Shotzi Blackheart, Ember Moon, and two partners to be announced) vs. Team Candice (Candice LeRae; Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez & Toni Storm)
  • NXT North American Champion Leon Ruff defends his title against Johnny Gargano and Damian Priest in a triple threat match
  • Strap match: Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes
