At WWE Evolution, the woman’s battle royal match came down to Ember Moon and Nia Jax. The winner would get a future title shot. Nia would go on to win the match, which did upset some fans as they wanted Ember to win.
On the latest audio update of PW Insider Elite, Dave Scherer mentioned that WWE does plan to eventually push Ember Moon, but it isn’t the right time yet. In fact, it might be advantageous for her. This is what he said:
“The one thing [the fans] aren’t considering here is, okay you want to see her get a push — that’s great. She’s not going to get a push at the expense of Ronda Rousey. It’s not going to happen nor should it happen. So if you get what you want and she’s in this position [as #1 contender] it’s not going to be a positive position.”
“She’s going to be in there to be the contender of the month that jobs out to Ronda. And you don’t want that. It’s kind of like when that dope Enzo Amore got hurt — he hit his face on the rope like snapped his neck. They were going to lose that match so you’re actually better off to get hurt and not get the stink of being a loser on ya.”
“She’s better off now because she can say at the first battle royal at the first women’s only pay-per-view who eliminated more people than her — no one. She didn’t win but she eliminated more people than anyone and that they can go back to later on.”
