Mercedes Mone AEW Interpromotional Match Teased AEW

Mercedes Mone has teased a big match for an upcoming event following her AEW in-ring debut.

Mone wrestled her first match for AEW at Double or Nothing, where she defeated Willow Nightingale for the TBS Title.

Not only was this her in-ring debut for AEW, it was her first match in over a year, with Mone suffering an ankle injury at the May 2023 NJPW Resurgence show.

NJPW President Hiroshi Tanahashi was present for the May 26 AEW pay-per-view, as well as the post-match media scrum.

During Mone’s appearance in the scrum, the former “Sasha Banks” appeared to reveal that she will wrestle in an interpromotional match at the upcoming Forbidden Door event.

Mone asked Tony Khan and Hiroshi Tanahashi to find a good opponent for her to wrestle at the June 30 AEW X NJPW crossover show.

Mone has some history with NJPW, with the star making her initial return to the ring following her WWE departure at the February 2023 Battle in the Valley event.

She defeated KAIRI (Kairi Sane) at this show to win the IWGP Women’s Championship.

Mone held this gold for 64 days before dropping the gold to Mayu Iwatani at STARDOM All Star Grand Queendom that April.

A notable WWE star has reacted to Mercedes Mone’s AEW TBS Championship win, which you can read more about right here.
