Mercedes Mone’s star continues to rise, building anticipation for her rumored AEW debut at Big Business next week. Despite her growing success, she has garnered a fair share of online haters. Mone took the opportunity to call out those who watch wrestling solely to criticize it, emphasizing the negativity in doing so without reason.

While speaking to Evan T Mack on the Kick Rocks Wrestling Podcast, Mercedes Mone was asked about aspiring wrestlers focusing on one company, she emphasized the importance of exploring various opportunities, stating that wrestling is for everybody, and wrestlers should gain experience from different promotions to grow and become the best.

“No, they should never think that. They should never think that there’s one place. I knew that from the beginning because there’s wrestling everywhere. Wrestling is for everybody. I don’t think you should just like one company. You should open your eyes to so many things.”

”Because your favourite wrestlers come from all different companies. They travel from around the world to gain their craft so much more so they can make it to a top company. They wouldn’t be there without all these different places and all these promotions. Because they need that experience, that growth so they can be the best.'”


Mercedes Mone also addressed the tribalism among wrestling fans, criticizing the trend of watching certain products solely to criticize or hate them. She emphasized the importance of enjoying wrestling as entertainment.

Mercedes Mone urged fans to have fun and appreciate the efforts of performers who put their bodies on the line. Mone questioned the fans who dictate which company wrestlers should be in, highlighting the subjective nature of individual career choices.

“First of all, I think we’re just living too much in our phone, the internet. It’s like – will you just go outside for a little bit and then go back into your room and watch wrestling. [It] is so funny. They watch it just to critique it, to hate it. They hate to love it. That’s the thing – they hate to love it. [They should] just love it.

Have fun. It’s just television. It’s just entertainers putting their bodies on the line to entertain you. And you’re the ones that are getting angry and going ‘Well, they should be in this company because this company [blah blah blah]…..’ What? You’re telling us what company we need to be in? You’re telling us what job we need to take?”

Mercedes Mone also addressed the mental toll of social media bullying. Nevertheless, fans are now waiting for her to debut at AEW Big Business next week, so we’ll have to see how that will turn out.
