Mercedes Mone was injured in her NJPW Strong Women’s Title match against Willow Nightingale a short time ago. That injury resulted in a change of plans for that title match, and it also cost Mercedes time from the ring. It seems that she has a ways to go until she is cleared.
Impact Wrestling held their Slammiversary every on Saturday, and Trinity won the Knockouts Title during that event. Mercedes Mone was also around, so she could be there for her good friend’s big moment.
It seems that Mercedes Mone is still waiting for her injury problem to go away. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that she was still rocking a walking boot, and she also needed the assistance of a crutch backstage.
She had crutches still, and she had a walking boot on, so the presumption is that she had surgery. She is still on crutches. We haven’t heard anything about a timetable.
It was also noted that NJPW already has plans. Although the precise timeline for Mercedes Martinez’s return remains a mystery, even among those who might typically be in the know. However, current plans suggest that upon her return, she will have a highly anticipated showdown against Giulia for the New Japan Strong title.
Mercedes Mone is not done with NJPW yet, because she needs to heal up and fulfill her commitments with the company first. Only time will tell what’s next for her, but the former Sasha Banks will need to heal up first.
Should AEW bring Mercedes Mone into the company the next chance they have? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
