Recently, the wrestling community has been abuzz with speculation about Mercedes Mone, formerly known as Sasha Banks in WWE, potentially signing with All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

However, recent developments suggest that fans might need to temper their expectations for now.

AEW CEO Tony Khan stirred excitement among fans with his announcement of a new signing, set to be revealed at AEW Full Gear 2023.

Khan’s tweet heightened the anticipation, describing the new acquisition as one of the world’s best wrestlers, well-respected and known to AEW fans. This announcement led to widespread speculation, with many fingers pointing towards Mercedes Mone as the potential signee.

Mercedes Mone: Ruled Out of the Reveal?

However, according to the latest update from Fightful Select, sources close to the matter have denied that Mone is the mystery signing to be unveiled at Full Gear 2023.

Mone, who has been out of action due to an ankle injury sustained in a match against Willow Nightingale at NJPW STRONG Resurgence in May 2023, followed by surgery, is not expected to be the new face in AEW – at least not at this event.

Tony Khan’s Interest in Mone for AEW

Despite this setback, it’s clear that Tony Khan is interested in working with Mercedes Mone. He has expressed this in various interviews and press conferences, indicating a potential collaboration once Mone has fully recovered from her injury.

Her appearance at AEW All In London, where she was seen seated in a suite in the crowd, further fueled these speculations.

In the meantime, the AEW women’s division is not short of excitement. The upcoming Full Gear event features two significant title matches. Kris Statlander will defend her TBS Championship against Julia Hart and Skye Blue in a three-way match.

Additionally, Hikaru Shida is set to put her AEW Women’s World Championship on the line against ‘Timeless’ Toni Storm.
