Adrienne Reese (August 31, 1988) is an American female professional wrestler best known by the ring name Athena. She is currently signed to WWE in their development territory NXT, under the ring name Ember Moon.

SHIMMER Women Athletes

Debut and Various Feuds (2010-2011)

Reese debuted for SHIMMER Women Athletes under the name Athena on September 11, 2010. Originally portraying a villainous character, Athena teamed with Jessie Brooks in a losing effort to Rachel Summerlyn and Jessica James at SHIMMER 33. She was defeated by Tenille later that same day at SHIMMER 34, and she went on a losing skid at the promotion until October 1, 2011, when she defeated Jessie McKay and Mia Yim in a three way match at SHIMMER 42 for her first victory at the promotion.

Face Turn (2011-2014)

On the following day, Athena competed to a double countout against Mercedes Martinez at SHIMMER 43, and her willingness to fight Mercedes again resulted in a face turn for Athena. At SHIMMER 44, Athena defeated Mercedes via disqualification after Mercedes turned heel and attached her with a steel chair. At SHIMMER 45 on March 17, 2012, Athena defeated Mercedes via pinfall.

Athena received her first opportunity at the SHIMMER Championship on October 17, losing to Saraya Knight at SHIMMER 49. Athena defeated Ayako Hamada at the SHIMMER 53 IPPV on April 6, 2013. On the following week at SHIMMER 54, Athena was defeated by Courtney Rush in a #1 Contender's four way match that also included Saraya Knight and Madison Eagles. At the SHIMMER 62 IPPV on April 5, 2014, Athena competed for the first time since returning from injury, defeating Candice LeRae.

Women Superstars Uncensored (2014-2015)

Athena debuted for Women Superstars Uncensored at their Mutiny event on February 8, 2014, competing in a losing effort against LuFisto. She was defeated by LuFisto again at the annual Queen and King event on May 10, this time in a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match for the vacated WSU Championship. At Resurgence on September 13, Athena defeated Hania, but she would lose a rematch to Hania at Breaking Barriers III on November 8. Athena would defeat Hania at the WSU 8th Anniversary Show on February 21, 2015 in a TLC Match, and was later attacked by Hania after the match ended, turning Hania into a villainess. At Power on May 9, Athena defeated Niya Barela in the first round of the WSU Spirit Championship Tournament.
