NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 went down on January 4th, and it was quite an event. Now, it seems that we have another epic photo-op out of the deal.

FTR competed at Wrestle Kingdom 17, where they lost the IWGP World Heavyweight Tag Team Titles to Hirooki Goto and Yoshi-Hashi. This match was a highlight of the Wrestle Kingdom event, but another debut stole the show for a lot of people.

Sasha Banks made her big debut in the Tokyo Dome, as Mercedes Mone, to confront KAIRI. Although Mercedes Mone likely botched her finishing move, her message was certainly made.

Bayley also made the trip to Japan, but she wasn’t a part of the show. She was only there to support Mercedes Mone for her big moment. That didn’t stop Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler from snapping an epic photo backstage of the two teams.


FTR is close with Mercedes Mone and Bayley, and that’s been the case since they were in WWE together. Dax Harwood uploaded the new photo of the two teams along with a throwback photo while he proclaimed, “What a life,” in the caption.

We’ll have to see what’s next for everyone involved in this story, but it certainly made for quite a photo on January 4th.

What’s your take on this situation with Mercedes Mone? Sound off in the comments!
