Ember Moon Injury Update

Ember Moon might be going under the knife for a second surgery, one that could actually result in a significantly cut-short career for the WWE Superstar.

In an interview with Comic Book, injured former NXT Women's Champion Ember Moon updated fans on her recovery, noting that it has been a long road back, she has no tentative return date and may actually have to undergo another surgery to repair her torn Achilles.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the new Ember Moon interview.

Details of the injury; her rehab, recovery and return

"It's been an up and down hill for me. A lot of people don't know this - they think I just have a very generic Achilles rupture, but I don't. What actually happened is that [my Achilles tendon] got split in half and then it also got torn off the bone. So I actually ruptured my Achilles in two places, and the surgeon thinks that I may have been wrestling on it for probably about two months already torn to some extent, and I just didn't feel the pain because I have kind of a high pain tolerance. It's been a very rough uphill battle and it sucks. I will say that where I originally had a return date, now I don't again, because of complications with strength building."

Her wrestling career being in jeopardy

"It's just a very, very long process and I would love, love, love to have a date back on the board but it's up in the air. I'm sitting here and I'm fighting a second surgery. I'm fighting against the second surgery. That's how bad it is. When I went on Backstage and I said, 'I don't know if I'm ever going to wrestle again,' I meant what I said and I, I stand by that."
