All Elite Wrestling will hold the inaugural AEW WrestleDream pay-per-view in memory of the legendary Antonio Inoki on October 1st at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington.

NJPW wrestlers are also set to be part of this event.

However, NJPW’s biggest female star, Mercedes Moné (fka Sasha Banks in WWE), will likely miss the event, according to AEW President Tony Khan.

Below is what he said about her on the All Out media call:

“One of the great stars involved in New Japan, who I have a ton of respect for, is Mercedes Mone. I think we have a good relationship, and I think she’s one of the greatest wrestlers on the planet. It was great to have her at All In.

She’s not available to wrestle right now, but when she does wrestle, I think she’s as good as anyone and one of the best in the world. I have so much respect for her as a competitor. Certainly, she’s one of the top stars in the world.

I don’t know if she would be physically cleared at that time. I’m not expecting that because she had a major injury. When she’s cleared, that is someone we’re really interested in working with.”

Moné appeared in the crowd at All In last Sunday. She was rumored to compete at the AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door pay-per-view back in June, but couldn’t due to her ankle injury.

As noted before, she has reportedly been in talks with AEW for a future appearance.
