Tony Khan Continues To Praise Mercedes Moné Ahead Of Forbidden Door 2 NJPW/AEW

Could it really be happening? Could IWGP Women’s Champion Mercedes Moné be a step closer to walking through the Forbidden Door?

In an interview with Adrian Hernandez from the Bet Las Vegas, Tony Khan took some time to make a little news amid discussing the upcoming Las Vegas pay-per-view, AEW Double or Nothing coming up in May 2023 (with tickets on sale now).

Khan said:

“It’s a very encouraging thing to hear. I have so much respect for Mercedes. I think she’s such a great pro wrestler and certainly one of the best in the world.

“Any wrestling company in the world, including AEW, is fortunate to have Mercedes. Currently, she is the world champion for our partner NJPW and I think she’s a great champion for them.

“I’m glad she brought up Forbidden Door as it’s going to be an exciting event. Certainly the shadow of Mercedes is looming large in NJPW right now.

“When AEW and NJPW clash at Forbidden Door, it will be very interesting to see what happens. She’s certainly one of their top stars and it makes for a very interesting situation going into Forbidden Door.”

As previously mentioned by Mercedes herself, the world apparently continues to await that call from Unc.

Khan also discussed something else he found “interesting” elsewhere in this interview: the recent reported free agent status of professional wrestling legend Bill Goldberg.
