Last updated

In the dynamic world of professional wrestling, the landscape is constantly shifting, with stars moving between promotions and creating waves of excitement among fans. A recent development in this ever-evolving saga involves Tony Khan, the President of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), expressing a keen interest in a former WWE superstar, Mercedes Mone, as a potential addition to AEW’s roster.

Tony Khan: Vision for AEW

Tony Khan, known for his strategic approach to building AEW’s talent pool, has made it clear that he sees Mercedes Mone as a valuable asset who could significantly enhance the promotion’s lineup.

His comments came in the wake of AEW Full Gear 2023, an event that had previously been teased to feature a ‘huge star signing’. While the reveal turned out to be Will Ospreay, Khan’s admiration for Mone was unmistakable during the post-show media scrum:

“I have a ton of respect for Mercedes Mone, we would love to have her anytime in AEW. She has had a great experience with our partner, New Japan, and she would be a great addition to AEW anytime, we would always love to have her here.”

Mercedes Mone’s Wrestling Journey

Mercedes Mone, a name that resonates with wrestling fans worldwide, has carved out a remarkable career in the industry.

Her journey took a turn when she suffered an ankle injury during her NJPW STRONG Women’s Title match against Willow Nightingale at NJPW STRONG Resurgence in May.

This injury has temporarily sidelined her, but it hasn’t diminished her appeal or the interest from major promotions like AEW.
