Mercedes Mone Comments on Competition Between AEW & WWE

Ahead of her in-ring debut, former IWGP Women’s Champion Mercedes Mone has commented on competition between AEW and WWE.

Mercedes Mone, then known as Sasha Banks, left WWE in May 2022 after creative differences with the company. From there, Mone debuted in NJPW and quickly became the IWGP Women’s Champion.

However, the former WWE star suffered a career-threatening ankle injury in May 2023. This led to her eventual debut in All Elite Wrestling at AEW Big Business in March 2024.

Speaking with Daniel Trainor of US Weekly, Mercedes Mone discussed the competition between AEW and WWE following her debut in All Elite Wrestling. She said:

“I feel like there should be no competition when it’s between companies,”

“It just needs to be competition between the wrestlers, seeing who wants to be the main event of the show, to make the most money.”

“I’m competing with everybody here in AEW to let them know I’m the face of the company. I’m not competing with any other company.”

On a lot of the competition between AEW and WWE stemming from fans on the internet, Mercedes said:

“A lot of things just trail from the Internet,”

“People are just so in their phones. Going on the Internet and bragging and complaining and they’re not actually living in the real world.”

“When they come out into the real world and they actually go to wrestling shows and enjoy things with wrestling fans, they know that this is all just so much fun.”

“People just like to drag things and be mean on the Internet just to be mean on the Internet. When they come to these shows, it’s a whole different feeling.”

Mercedes Mone will challenge Willow Nightingale for the TBS Championship this Sunday, May 26 at AEW Double Or Nothing.
