Mercedes Mone walked out of WWE in May 2022, and she hasn’t been back. The latest expectation is that she will go to AEW, but that hasn’t happened yet, either.
Mercedes Mone recently teased that 2024 is going to be lot of fun. At this time, we are still waiting to see what her idea of “fun” is. WWE was also in the conversation to snag her to a new deal, but money was an issue for Mone.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Mercedes Mone’s situation. She is still expected to sign with AEW. He theorized that Mone may not have signed a deal with AEW yet, and he really won’t believe it until it happens, since rumors about her have been going around about her for a long time.
“The expectation is that it’s imminent. Until it happens and that I hear that the contract is actually signed, I don’t take anything seriously because it’s been a year of rumors and thoughts and noting happened.“
“She could have signed with AEW at the time. You know, that was only a few dates. Five shows.“
“Nothing precluded her from signing with AEW, except for if she did she would be giving up her chance to go to WWE. She was negotiating with WWE just until recently. Who knows exactly how this will turn out. When she shows and when she signs up is when I’ll believe it. Yes in AEW, the belief in AEW is that it’s imminent, it’s probably going to happen and everyone is expecting it to happen.“
AEW could really use someone with Mercedes Mone’s star power, as their women’s division needs strength. They added Deonna Purrazzo to their roster this week on Dynamite, as she declared that she is now All Elite.
Mercedes Mone could decide to make her way to AEW at this point, and that is the expectation. Now, only time will tell what she does next, because she was also talking to WWE about coming back.
