Ember Moon Reveals Source of Injury
Spoilers: it wasn’t a match. Ember Moon said in an interview with Booker T that she suffered her Achilles injury participating in a 24/7 Championship running segment (h/t WrestlingInc). Moon was told she’d be a part of the angle because Carmella was champion at the time. Here is her quote on the injury:
“We do the run through and I told Truth, I was like, ‘Truth, you better run, I’m gonna catch you, Truth. If I catch you, I’m tackling you and you’re going down.’ And so when we actually did it, I literally caught them right before we went through the curtain. So they go through the curtain and they didn’t realize how close I was behind them. As I’m coming through, the curtain shuts, I open it, go through. Truth is dropping Carmella and I’m going full speed and I had to hit the brakes. I was just like, ‘whoah,’ BOOM, and I felt a pop.”
Good Humor Selling WWE Ice Cream Bars
CM Punk must be thrilled. Good Humor is selling WWE-branded ice cream sandwiches on their website once again (h/t Fightful). They previously sold ice cream bars in the 90s and 2000s, and in 2011.
