On this week’s WWE Backstage, Renee Young, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry, and Ember Moon talked about matches that they’d like to do-over because of poor performances or a bad ending. Ember Moon said she could reflect on her not doing enough in some of her title matches, but the topic makes her think more of her current injury — a torn Achilles.
Moon sustained the injury last September during a WWE 24/7 Title chase segment. She had to put on the brakes while running full speed, and unfortunately heard a pop when she did so.
“I look back at my career in WWE — I’ve been here five years,” Moon began. “I look back, and yeah, I should have been the one to defeat Asuka‘s streak, or ‘Aw, man, me and Bayley from SummerSlam, I wish I’d done more.’ The more and more I sit back and look at everything I’d re-do, I think about my injury currently. Realizing that I may have a career-ending injury. I’m coming back from the hardest injury and I might not have a chance to redeem myself of all the things I wanted to do and I wanted to do in my future. It’s so hard to look back and regret, when I try to look forward.”
Moon became a bit emotional at the thought of not returning to the ring and Henry then chimed in to let her know she’s too great to stop and “has a lot left in the tank.”
“I keep looking forward because this is what I love,” Moon continued. “This is my passion, this is the only thing I’ve ever wanted for myself. And I want that opportunity to not look back, but to look forward and be better than ever before. It’s so hard to look back. … I’m going to prove to you guys that I’m worth redeeming those mistakes and those regrets. It’s just going to be awhile before I do so.”
