Mercedes Mone Contract Status Revealed

Mercedes Mone Contract Status Revealed NJPW

Mercedes Mone has provided an update on her contract status following her NJPW debut.

After almost 8 months away from the ring, and a WWE departure, the former ‘Sasha Banks’ made an appearance at Wrestle Kingdom 17 to confront IWGP Women’s Champion KAIRI.

Mone returned to the ring at the February 18 NJPW Battle in the Valley event, where she defeated KAIRI to become the second ever IWGP Women’s Champion.

Speaking with Alex McCarthy ahead of her title win, Mone revealed that she is still a free agent, and hasn’t signed an exclusive deal with NJPW or STARDOM.

Discussing her status, Mone said:

“I’m as free as a bird. I’ve got the choice to decide anything that I want to do. Especially tomorrow when I win the IWGP Women’s Championship, I plan to take that title all over the world, not just New Japan.

“It’s about to be a global championship. So wherever that championship ends up, whether it be on United States TV, Japan TV, Mexico TV, Germany TV, anywhere all over the world is wherever I choose to make it happen.

“So whoever has the best bag, whoever writes the best cheque for Mercedes Mone, that’s where I might end up.”

Mone’s first IWGP Women’s Championship challenger has now been revealed, which you can read more about right here.
