Quote Nia Jax comes down to the ring with her new RAW Women's Title belt on her shoulder. Alexa Bliss and Mickey James come out next, and Alexa gets on the mic and calls both Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax bullies. Alexa says Nia throws her weight around, and it's a lot of weight, and she beat up Mickie for no reason last night. Alexa says she only lost because she was distraught by seeing Mickie attacked. Nia tells Alexa to shut up a couple times, and says she loved beating up Mickie and Alexa last night. Nia introduces her new partner, Ember Moon.

- Nia Jax & Ember Moon vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James: It's all Nia in the opening moments as she grabs Mickie and tosses her across the ring. Nia drops Alexa next, then goes back to work on Mickie and tags in Ember. Ember gets the tag and cleans house. She hits a springboard moonsault on Bliss, then trips her up and goes back up top for the Eclipse. Ember pins for the three count after a very short matchc.

Winners: Nia Jax & Ember Moon

She was always going to debut on Raw, so the brand have their own version of Naomi.
 
She's a charasmatic and athletic black woman, who the fans love to cheer for.
 
It's a shame she didn't build more of an NXT legacy before being called up. But it is what it is.

Glad she got the call up - she deserves it after the year she has had in NXT

Hopefully they book her well and dont waste her talent

LOVE HER

In fact I came within a hair's breath of starting this thread myself on Monday night. 

But she is awesome to watch, is amazingly athletic, agile, and that top rope Eclipse finisher is wicked. Plus she has an awesome look, and awesome eyes.

She was superb in NXT and she sells like a boss.

She can connect with the crowd easily and seems to have quite a following

She SHOULD be a success on the main roster

Quote Ember Moon vs. Mickie James: Mickie and Ember trade arm holds early on, until Moon trips Mickie down and mounts her. Alexa Bliss appears on camera from backstage and says she isn't coming out to the broadcast table because Nia is a bully, and Alexa doesn't want to be bullied by Nia again. Back in the ring, Mickie comes back with a knee on Ember and then an elbow to the face. Mickie hits a swinging neckbreaker for a two count, then continues working on Ember. Ember hits a head scissor takedown and then a kick and a knee to the face. Ember hits a kick and a suplex. Ember hits a cartwheel splash in the corner, then goes up top. Ember hits the Eclipse off the top for the three count.

Winner: Ember Moon

She looked nervous. She was in with a legend to protect her, but in parts it looked sloppy.
 
The crowd was fairly dead too, but getting over in the big league is different to doing so in front of the same old people every week in NXT.
 
Having a unique look is the easiest part of all, as anyone can dye their hair and wear contact lenses.

I am very happy that Ember qualified for the Money In the Bank (getting caught up on the past couple weeks' shows.) That triple threat with her, Sasha, and Ruby Riot was awesome; and that ending with the Eclipse out of nowhere on Ruby while Ruby was tied up with Sasha was awesome. 

I still love her, but the one thing I find weird is that while her image with her outfit and glaring eyes is of someone from another world (kind of like Bray Wyatt), but in her interviews she talks like a normal person. Based on her character persona she should talk in a deepened, disguised voice as Bray or Undertaker. That would more fit her character. Yet at the same time, I love how despite the celestial image, in her interviews she shows a human side. 

On a general side note, watching wrestling is so much better when you're specifically rooting for someone. I'll be rooting for her in Money in the Bank.

I think it's way too soon for her to win MITB but at the same time I'm not sure what there is for her on Raw right now. There's a lack of heels and a big need to make Jax and Rousey look as strong as possible without completely crushing established competitors like Banks and Bayley.

Unfortunately the notion of it being "too soon" for her to win MITB won't stop me from rooting for her because, you know, I'm a wrestling fan before I'm a wrestling booking analyst. 

And no, it is not too soon for her. She's already more deserving than some people who have won it in the past due to her proving her craft. 

And "what there is for her on Raw" is to compete with some of the best lady wrestlers in good matches. Did you see the six woman tag last week, her, Sasha, and Natalya against the Riot Squad?

Well she wasn't even on the Hulu presentation of Raw so whatever it was she did wasn't too impressive, apparently. Moon looks good, but I haven't seen anything from her that says she'll win against far more proven stars. She looks completely out of her depth (speaking from a purely fans perspective). As for how far she might go, I just don't know.

I wouldnt mind if she won - some say its too soon but then whats the time it should take before its not so soon?

Id actually like someone to come direct from NXT one day and win MITB without even debuting on the main roster show just to add that extra element of surprise to the concept
