WWE’s Bayley Addresses Mercedes Mone Joining AEW WWE/AEW

WWE Women’s Champion Bayley has opened up about watching AEW TBS Champion Mercedes Mone wrestle in a different company.

Bayley and the former “Sasha Banks” were both bitter rivals and great allies during their time together in WWE, with the duo both trading championships, and winning titles together.

With Mercedes Mone returning to wrestling away from WWE at the beginning of 2023, Bayley previously noted that she had begged her friend to return to WWE so they could share the ring once again.

This hasn’t happened so far, with Mone notably joining AEW in March.

Speaking with Denise Salcedo, Bayley noted that she’s excited to watch Mone’s work as a fan.

Admitting that it still feels odd to not have her in WWE, Bayley said:

“I’m so excited to see her take this to the next level.

“As much as I miss having her here, wrestling to me still feels weird without her, but it’s like I have her in a different way where I can tell her what’s going on here and what I need help with and what I’m trying to do to make it better over here, and the same goes for her.

“It’s kinda nice that we’re able to help and grow in two different companies and separately. In a way, it’s kind of better.

“I’m so proud of her just for taking that leap and taking a chance on herself, and she has so much to offer the world, and there’s just so much more that she’s gonna be able to do.

“I’m really excited to watch her. Now I just get to be a fan. Can’t be her tag partner anymore, but now I get to be a fan.”
