Mercedes Mone (fka Sasha Banks in WWE) is the hottest free agent on the pro-wrestling market and it looks like she’s going to debut in AEW soon.

Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported:

“On [Saturday’s] show there were no teases for Mercedes Mone or for her appearing Wednesday in Jacksonville. What I know is that AEW does expect her to start on TV soon, but as noted, until it happens and the contract itself is signed, I wouldn’t consider anything 100 percent.

One would think there would be some sort of a tease of a surprise if she was to appear, since that’s been the case with most major signings. But Sting’s original debut in Jacksonville came out of nowhere.

WWE and AEW have clearly both been talking with her. Obviously this has gone on with AEW for months if not a year and she’s never signed yet. There was a lot of talk within wrestling of her on this week’s Dynamite which she wasn’t on.

We do know that the expectation is she will be in AEW fairly soon, but until a contract signing is confirmed, anything can happen.”

Mercedes’ last match took place on May 21st 2023, where she lost to AEW wrestler Willow Nightingale at NJPW STRONG Resurgence in a match to crown the inaugural NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion.

Mone got injured during this match and hasn’t competed since.

There was a report that WWE ended conversations with her regarding a return, as she asked for a lot of money.

She walked out from WWE in May 2022 due to creative differences and alleged disrespect from WWE Officials.
