Ember Moon slams creative direction and ending of Asuka vs Banks match

 
 

While Sasha Banks and Bayley are probably the two happiest Superstars in all of WWE right now, there’s one person who was not impressed with what went down this past Monday.

Ember Moon, the former NXT Women’s champion who’s currently out injured, said she was “upset” with how the match ended although she said she loved the match up until that point.

Speaking during a Twitch session, Moon questioned why the company needs two double champions, reliving the Triple H and Steve Austin angle from 2001. “Is SummerSlam going to be like low-key Evolution with Sasha and Bayley wrestling for their singles titles and also for the tag titles?” Moon said.

Moon credited both Sasha Banks and Bayley for doing a great job over the past few months but “there are too many people sitting at home to tie up all the titles with two people.”

She also didn’t like the way Kairi Sane was treated in her final appearance, saying she doesn’t know if that was the proper way to go. “I feel you make it more of a threat than just Kairi getting beat up backstage,” Moon said, giving her own opinion on how it should have been “more of a life or death situation” versus Bayley repeatedly throwing Sane around.

“I get we’re supposed to be angry, and kudos to them for making us angry. No one wanted Asuka to lose, everyone wanted NXT Asuka back and having an undefeated streak. That’s what WWE does,” she continued. “I fell for the ploy of ‘I’m angry because I saw my friend Asuka lose the title in a crappy way.’ Are we gonna have Sasha just lose the title to Lacey Evans or transfer Naomi over? They’re building to SummerSlam, right? As a fan, I feel like I got ripped because once again, I don’t get Bayley vs. Sasha.”

Moon admitted that she had to turn off Raw because she was so upset, calling the first 90 minutes of the show “infuriating from a professional and fan standpoint.”
