All of the mysterious promos and videos teased over the past few weeks have said that a former Champion would be returning to NXT to claim what was theirs, and lots of theories were thrown out but no one was sure who it was. It all built to the big reveal at TakeOver 31, and it did not disappoint, as the mysterious motorcycle pulled up the arena, followed by the person coming to the entrance ramp. She would pull off the helmet and reveal herself to be Ember Moon, and it is great to have her back in NXT.
Moon has been dealing with a serious injury for quite some time, which was the main reason everyone thought it wouldn't be her. That said, there were many who hoped it would be her anyway, and now they have their wish.
You can see the full video of Moon's return below.
