The former WWE star Ember Moon recently made some comments regarding NXT 2.0 and herself. She stood up against the matter of WWE trying to dress the female talents like Mandy Rose, who is currently the reigning NXT Women’s Champion. During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet on INSIGHT, the former WWE star claimed that WWE officials held meetings in NXT 2.0 where they asked stars to dress like Rose.
“To be told that I’ve done nothing wrong and I was taken off TV for doing nothing wrong, it hurt so bad because I was so happy walking into work. I remember when Shotzi left, I remember going to my makeup artist and saying, ‘I am so unhappy.’ We’d have to sit through stupid meetings about how we’d have to dress sexy. I’m not about to wear fishnet booty buttcheek shorts because we had a two-hour meeting about how to dress like Mandy Rose. That’s not fair. Mandy is absolutely phenomenal and an amazing person, but not everyone is Mandy Rose.”
More details on the meetings
Now, Fightful Select reported that they have learned about the meetings months ago but could not get anyone to confirm. They reported that the meetings were scheduled under the guise of “fashion consulting.” It was further noted that “the company brought in a consultant named Melanie Pace to conduct the meetings.”
Fightful reported that the talent blamed John Laurinaitis but Fightful can’t confirm he had anything to do with it. One talent said they were encouraged to dress similarly backstage and although “dress sexier” wasn’t said it was implied. It was also noted that numerous women refused to attend the meetings.
Recently, in what seemed like a reaction to Moon’s comments, the former Golden Goddess took to Twitter to share a GIF of herself.
