Mercedes Moné: I’m The Greatest Women’s Wrestler Of All Time

In a recent interview with Cameron Hawkins of The Ringer, Mercedes Moné delved into the career transitions that have defined her journey. Moné detailed her departure from WWE, her experience touring Japan, and her ultimate decision to sign with AEW. She emphasized that these moves were crucial for her evolution and growth as a performer.

“I don’t like being handcuffed,” Mercedes Moné said. “The only place to grow is with change, and I needed that change. My mission statement is to make women’s wrestling globalized here in AEW and I want to accomplish so many things here. I want to wrestle the best.”

Moné is set to face one of the top competitors this weekend at Double or Nothing, taking on TBS Champion Willow Nightingale. This match holds special significance as Nightingale was Moné’s opponent in her last match a year ago when she sustained a serious ankle injury. Despite the past, Moné is confident that their encounter will be the highlight of the event.

“I don’t want to put pressure on myself because I’ve been doing this for 14 years,” Mercedes Moné said. “I have more excitement than pressure, but I am really nervous as well, just because it’s been a year since I performed, but being in the ring with someone like Willow Nightingale, I know it’s going to be absolutely everything I’ve ever dreamed of. We’re going to go out there and steal the show.”

Despite being nervous going into her first match with AEW on Sunday, Moné wants to show the wrestling world a side of her as a performer they’ve never seen before.

“They haven’t really got to see the CEO,” Mercedes explains confidently. “They know who Sasha Banks is. But the CEO, Mercedes Moné, is something they’ve never seen before, and I’m ready to show them. I’m the greatest women’s wrestler of all time, 100 percent.”
