A top IMPACT Wrestling star has invited Mercedes Moné to the company.
At NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17, the former Sasha Banks made her debut for New Japan Pro Wrestling under the new name of Mercedes Moné.
Her immediate impact has been evident with Moné’s scheduled first bout against KAIRI for the IWGP Women’s Championship leading to tickets being sold out for the upcoming NJPW Battle In The Valley event on February 18.
Meanwhile, Mickie James kept her legendary career going by defeating Jordynne Grace for the IMPACT Knockouts World Championship at IMPACT Hard To Kill.
In a new interview with Ella Jay for SEScoops, James discussed the journey that Mercedes Moné has been on since leaving WWE. She said:
“I’m excited for her. The world is her oyster. She can literally do whatever she wants. I think any company would benefit from having her on their roster.”
“She’s a star. The fact that she doesn’t need to be on a roster because she could go act or she could go do a lot of things, it shows that she has a genuine passion for wrestling, and she’s great.”
“I’ve never had a singles match with Sasha. I would really, really love to have a singles match with Mercedes. I love her. I have so much love and respect for her. I think she’s incredible.”
“I’m excited to watch her journey, I really am. I’m excited because I feel like she has an opportunity now to do it her way, and she wanted to a lot of things, and now she gets to go do them.”
“She can go test herself against whoever she wants to and show up everywhere. That’s what I hope, she shows up everywhere. Come on over to IMPACT.”
