Ember Moon reacts to being pulled from her match on NXT.
NXT is returning to the USA Network for the first time in two weeks due to the USA Network’s coverage of the Olympics. Tonight’s edition of NXT was going to feature a match between Ember Moon and Sarray. It was announced that Moon is medically unable to compete and filling in for her in the match is Dakota Kai.
Moon took to Twitter and commented on the news and noted that this month has been rough for her. She added that she was looking forward to wrestling Sarray but this is just another bump in the road.
.@wwenxt This has been an extremely rough month, I am angry and gutted! I was really looking forward to this match and getting back on track but just got another pothole in the road. I'm sorry! https://t.co/ZcX0hPqII2

Dakota Kai is scheduled to challenge Raquel Gonzalez for the NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver 36 on August 22nd. Raquel is appearing on tonight’s show to give her thoughts about Dakota attacking her several weeks ago.
Kai was in action prior to the 8/9 edition of Raw going live. She competed in a dark match and lost to Aliyah.
