Former WWE Star Opens Up About Mercedes Mone Friendship WWE

A former WWE star has opened up about their friendship with NJPW’s Mercedes Mone revealing they remain close friends.

Samuray Del Sol and Mercedes Mone were both members of the WWE NXT roster as Kalisto and Sasha Banks respectively and this was the start of their enduring friendship.

Appearing on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Del Sol spoke about their friendship, saying:

“We both love the same things.

“We both love lucha libre. We both love to practice everywhere. Wherever I’m at, it’s like, ‘Hey, I’m going to go down there and practice’. ‘All right, cool. Let’s go.’

“On top of that, she’s [also] my neighbor and when Abby (his wife) always makes Mexican food or salsa, she’s like, ‘All right, I’m there.’ ‘All right, cool. Come on.'”

Del Sol and Mone are in business together with their CBD brand Kanndela having won the Industry Newcomer Awards at the World CBD Awards in October 2022.
