The addition of Mercedes Mone to AEW has sparked a notable shift in the promotion’s landscape. As a prominent figure in the history of the Jacksonville-based organization, her arrival has created significant excitement. With nearly a couple of weeks having passed since her signing, speculation has begun regarding Mone’s potential first opponent, with contenders stepping forward.

Since making her debut in AEW earlier this month, Mercedes Mone has engaged in confrontations with both Julia Hart and Skye Blue. However, she has not yet competed in an actual match inside the squared circle.

Mercedes Mone recently took to social media and asked fans who her first opponent in AEW should be. Red Velvet decided to step up and presented herself as Mercedes Mone’s first opponent and even tagged AEW President Tony Kahn to make it happen.

”@MercedesVarnado ME! I don’t think we’ve formally met yet. Hello Mercedes, I’m The Chef. 👩🏾‍🍳 @AEW ‘s SECRET INGREDIENT. The head of the welcoming committee here at AEW. I am Red Velvet 🍰. Let’s run it. I love me a good fight 🥊 @TonyKhan”


Mercedes Mone also stated that she is all about ‘that bag.’ We will have to wait and see whether Mone will square off against Red Velvet as her first opponent in AEW this week.
