Saraya Issues Challenge To Mercedes Mone Following AEW TBS Championship Win AEW

Saraya has issued a challenge to Mercedes Mone following the CEO’s big AEW TBS Championship win at Double or Nothing 2024.

In her long-awaited debut match at Double or Nothing, Mercedes Mone defeated Willow Nightingale to capture her first piece of gold in over a year.

Now, that she’s champion however, it appears that she may have a target on her back – with someone she knows very well stepping up to challenge her via social media.

Posting to Twitter, Saraya responded to comments from an interview in which Mone had addressed a future match with the former ‘Paige’.

Saraya wrote:

I’ve waited over 6 years to take more than just your championship @MercedesVarnado let’s go baby girl.

Fans have been eager to see Saraya and Mone square off inside an AEW ring ever since the CEO departed WWE in 2022 – with the pair sharing a documented history rooted in some unfortunate real-life circumstances.

During a WWE live event in December 2017 Saraya received a kick from Mone which inadvertently caused a serious neck injury and forced the former two-time Divas Champion into an early in-ring retirement.

Thankfully however, Saraya was able to make a return to the ring in AEW at AEW Full Gear 2022, defeating Britt Baker.

Since then Saraya has gone on to capture the AEW Women’s World Championship and last competed in a tag team match on last week’s AEW Dynamite (May 22).

While we” have to wait to find out what AEW’s plans for Mone are, there has been an interpromotional match teased for the CEO at an upcoming event – click here for full details.
