Mercedes Mone, formerly known as Sasha Banks has transcended as one of the megastars in the professional wrestling scene. However, there were indiscreet comments made about her by former NXT star Amari Miller who revealed the aftermath of her actions.

In 2022, Amari Miller stated that she aspired to become the second African American NXT Women’s Champion after former star, Ember Moon. However, a fan reminded that Mone was also of the same descent and had achieved that feat before Miller.

Miller responded by mentioning that the CEO of women’s wrestling was “German and Black” receiving major backlash from the people on social media. She later apologized for her actions by clarifying that her comments were misjudged.

During recent interview with Steve Fall, the former NXT star revealed how she felt following the response to her tweet about the 7-time WWE Women’s champion.


“It did suck and it was very hurtful. There are some people that are still mean about it and there’s some people that have, you know, surpassed it and it’s like, this is in the past. It is what it is. But those are also the same people that are going to be in your face, like, ‘Oh my gosh. Can I have an autograph?’, or ‘I sent you fan mail and I did this.’ So that’s another thing. You put your life publicly. We’ve all done something. There’s so many wrestlers and so many famous people before that have said something that went the wrong way and it happens.”

You just got to kind of move forward and be like, okay, are the people that matter mad? No. Okay. Did you say you’re sorry, like, if you honestly mean to say sorry? Yes. Are you grateful for where you’re at? Okay, get off social media, let’s just let this fizzle out, and then go on with the next step and ignore them.

I’ve learned that like, I’m not a huge person on blocking people. I don’t like it. It’s a waste of time, like, whatever, but sometimes you do have to go out of your way to block people and at the same time, when people say things to you, it’s like, that’s a reflection on themselves. I feel like trolls are gonna troll because they’re, in a sense, jealous, but if they’re not jealous, they just want to find something to do to occupy their time and we have to keep that in our head as well.”

As far as Mercedes Mone is concerned, she is expected to make her debut for Tony Khan’s AEW at their upcoming special event, AEW Big Business in nearly a month.
