Mercedes Mone made her first wrestling-related appearance since the May 16, 2022, episode of RAW tonight. The CEO made her NJPW debut at the Wrestle Kingdom 17 event.

Mone, who used to compete in WWE under the Sasha Banks ring name, confronted IWGP Women’s Champion KAIRI following her successful title defense against Tam Nakano.

NJPW’s newest acquisition got physical for the first time since her WWE run, when she laid out KAIRI with her new finishing move. Mone, however, botched the finisher and that didn’t sit well with the internet wrestling community.

Fans took to Twitter and dragged Mone for botching her new finisher, with some calling out both NJPW and their newest star on social media. Check out some of the reactions here:
