Ember Moon update

Jan 3, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Former WWE Superstar Ember Moon (Athena Palmer) will be using her real name on the indies – Athena.

Moon’s first post-WWE appearance has been announced for the Baltimore Celebfest 3 on Sunday, February 6 at the La Fontaine Bleue. You can find tickets for the signing at this link.

Moon is taking bookings via j@jnmgmt.com. We noted last week at this link how she teased her return to the ring and said she will be “free” soon.

Moon was released from her WWE contract on Thursday, November 4, along with other budget cuts. It’s believed she was under a 90-day non-compete clause, which will make her a free agent from WWE on Wednesday, February 2. She has not wrestled since losing to current WWE NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose on the October 5 edition of NXT.

Stay tuned for more. Below are details on the Celebfest 3 appearance:

    I liked Ember Moon but I never understood the internet fascination with her. I thought she was an alright wrestler/performer but there was always a cosplay nature to her work that, to me, rang fake. She was more smoke than fire, meaning her entrance and music was all anyone really cared about and was the primary reason she was over (aside from her one big move). Nakamura got over AFTER they took his music away and now the music adds another layer to the gimmick rather than being an actual FOCAL point of it. There’s a big difference. I hope she lands on her feet, makes her money, and eventually gets another crack at the WWE. She’s got the tools that, with a bit more serious attitude, could take her a very, very long way.

    Athena is not her real name. Her real name is Adrienne.
