Mercedes Mone just lost the NJPW Women’s Title, and she’s wrapping up her time with the company. She walked out of WWE nearly one year ago along with Naomi, and it appears that The Boss is going to be there for her friend once again.

We previously reported that Naomi is set to make her Impact Wrestling debut at tonight’s television tapings. This is a big get for Impact Wrestling, but exactly how she will be used or any specifics of her deal are unknown at this time.

PW Insider dropped a very interesting update about Mercedes Mone’s whereabouts today. She is in Chicago, the site of Impact Wrestling’s television taping event. She was just in Japan, and it appears that Mone didn’t waste any time making it back to the United States.

Mercedes Mone is in Chicago, the site of tonight’s Impact Wrestling tapings at Cicero Stadium. Mone was spotted in the Windy City today. She had been in Japan just a few days ago.


As we broke earlier this week, former WWE star Trinity Fatu will debut tonight (which will air on next week’s TV show on AXS TV) and it appears Mone is at least there to support Fatu. Impact sources earlier this week denied Mone was appearing on their tapings this week when asked.

It was also noted that Naomi “has traveled to several of Mone’s big moments this year, including her Tokyo Dome debut, so it would appear Mone is returning the favor.” It was not noted that this is a sign of Mercedes Mone’s Impact Wrestling debut.

Ringside News exclusively reported that Naomi would have re-signed with WWE if not for Sasha Banks. Naomi held out for more terms with Mercedes Mone, and then they started their own thing.

We will have to keep an eye on Impact Wrestling to see what Trinity Fatu is able to do. She could be a big threat in the Knockouts Division, but the length of her deal could determine how much Impact Wrestling wants to invest in her.

What’s your take on Naomi going to Impact Wrestling? Do you think this is the right move? Sound off in the comments!
