Both Ember Moon Adrienne Palmer and Mia Yim Stephanie Bell have been wrestling on television for several years, and like many of the names axed by WWE during their latest round of budget cuts—including Ember Moon Kross, Scarlett Bordeaux and Keith Ember Moon were underutilized by the sports entertainment empire to a frustrating degree.
This is not the first time that WWE has released talent en masse while citing "budget cuts" as the reason. Moon did win the title after Asuka’s jump to Monday Night Raw, and had a solid reign, but multiple injuries repeatedly held up her own main roster experience and she ultimately struggled to find any consistency from WWE’s creative decision-makers when she was healthy.
Meanwhile, Mia Yim’s own jump to the main roster forced her into arguably one of the worst factions in WWE history: the universally panned Retribution.

With two influential names returning to the free agency pool at the same time, women’s wrestling is about to get another shot in the arm from Ember Moon and Mia Yim following their releases from WWE.
After being mismanaged to such a frustrating extent, and some truly formidable competition like AEW now on the table, both will undoubtedly be hungry to prove themselves in a brand new era for women’s professional wrestling.
