Ember Moon On Origins Of The Eclipse Finisher, Its' Original Name & More

Former NXT Women’s Champion turned recent WWE main roster call-up, Ember Moon, appeared as a guest on the CBS Sports “In This Corner” podcast for an in-depth interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On being embraced by the WWE Universe in a losing effort to Asuka back at the NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III event: “It’s crazy, because I remember taking the loss and just like sitting there and thinking that the world was over, but then, this miraculous moment happened where the WWE Universe embraced me as one of their own. They were like, ‘Ok, we love you,’ and I got my first standing ovation in WWE and just feeling that energy, there was nothing to be mad about, there was nothing to be sad about. I gave it my all, and the only thing I really wanted to do after that point was give the WWE Universe something in return.”

On the origins and original name for her finisher, The Eclipse: “So, when I first started doing The Eclipse, formerly known as the O-Face, it was a move created by one of my friends who did a not-PG gimmick or had a non-PG character. And, at that time, I did not know the meaning of said word, I’m not gonna say the meaning of said word, but, just know that it is The Eclipse now. And, it took a long time to master, I’m still working out kinks in it here and there, I would like to think that it’s almost perfected.

“But yeah, it’s crazy how it means so much to me in like a really weird, intimate way as a performer. You know, I always pride myself on doing things that no other woman would do, and now it’s like, I’m in WWE, I’m a WWE superstar, and I do things that even men wouldn’t do. Like I said, lack of bodily care [when I do dangerous moves]. Not the best thing that I have, but you know, it’s a cool trait.”
