Sasha Banks is widely recognized as one of the greatest female professional wrestlers of all time, thanks to her extraordinary talents in the ring. Her abrupt exit from WWE RAW in the previous year became a hot topic of discussion, causing a surge of conjecture and gossip. Subsequently, Banks made a comeback in NJPW, where she participated using the moniker Mercedes Mone, further solidifying her reputation as a prominent figure in the world of professional wrestling. Now it seems Mone wants to open a wrestling school.

Sasha Banks made a splash with her remarkable debut at Wrestle Kingdom 17 in NJPW, where she assumed the persona of the captivating “The CEO” Mercedes Mone. After KAIRI defended her title against Tam Nakano, Banks made a grand entrance onto the stage, eliciting a thunderous applause from her fans. Her fans eagerly anticipated her triumphs in NJPW, eagerly looking forward to her upcoming performances.

In a memorable moment at the NJPW Battle At The Valley, Mercedes Mone bravely stepped up to challenge KAIRI for the IWGP Women’s Championship and ultimately emerged victorious, claiming the coveted title for herself. Adding to the thrill of the occasion, an old friend from her WWE days was present at the event to help ignite the crowd and make the moment even more special.

While speaking on the Under The Ring podcast, Mercedes Mone stated that her travels around the world serve a dual purpose: to enhance her skills and elevate her game, and to realize her dream of opening her own wrestling school in the future.


“Wrestling is such a universal language. When you’re in there, you don’t have to say anything, you just gotta flow. When I was in Mexico, I just flowed with the luchadors. When I was in Japan, I just had a flow with them even though I couldn’t exactly understand what they were saying.

“I love learning every single style that I can possibly be because I want to be the best in every area when it comes to Japanese wrestling, European, Mexico — I wanna be the absolute best.

“I’m a student of the game. I’ve been traveling the world training with the best trainers and best wrestlers from all different generations. So I’m ready, I’m excited. This is for my own growth in the future as well because one day I want to have my own wrestling school.

“So, to be able to have all these different techniques and styles is something I want to be able to give to my students one day so I can teach them how to be the greatest of all time as well.”

Mercedes Mone also does not rule out making return to WWE in the future. It remains to be seen if she will return to WWE in the future. In the meantime, keep checking back with Ringside News for more.
