Tony Khan Addresses AEW Interest In Mercedes Moné – Many fans believed Mercedes Moné would be the mystery partner for Saraya on the January 11 episode of AEW Dynamite, but Saraya chose Toni Storm.
Fans continued to believe Moné (formerly Sasha Banks in WWE) would show up at the event and rumors were fueled when Britt Baker mentioned a “boss” in the lead up to the match.
January 11 came and went without Mone showing up.
When asked by Grapsody’s Phil Lindsey at the AEW Revolution post-show press conference about the possibility of Mone appearing in AEW, Tony Khan stated, “I have a ton of respect for the IWGP Women’s World Champion, she’s a tremendous wrestler. I wouldn’t want to comment on discussions I’ve had with any wrestler who is a free agent, in particular, a wrestler who is a champion of one of our partners. A ton of respect for that great wrestler and somebody that any wrestling company would be very fortunate to have wrestling for them.”
Mone won the IWGP Women’s Championship from KAIRI at NJPW Battle in the Valley.
