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, Mone has instantly been booked as a star, but she has made it clear she has no intention of telling anyone to join AEW.

Since her debut in AEW back in March, Mercedes Mone has engaged in confrontations with Julia Hart and Skye Blue, establishing herself as a significant presence in the company right from the start.

During a recent interview with James Stewart of the Stick to Wrestling Podcast, the former WWE Women’s Champion expressed her perspective on recruitment in AEW. She stated that she doesn’t feel the need to actively recruit anyone.

Instead, she believes it’s up to every individual performer to decide if they want to be among the best in the world. Ultimately, she emphasized that it’s Tony Khan’s decision if he wants certain wrestlers in AEW. She highlighted that AEW is dedicated to showcasing the best wrestlers in the world, and if anyone wants to be a part of it, they are welcome to come to AEW.


“I don’t need to recruit anybody. If anybody wants to be here, they can come here. Well, it’s really up to Tony Khan. If he wants somebody here, they would have to be the best wrestlers and that’s what AEW is all about. It’s for the best wrestlers in the world. If you want to be here, come to AEW.”

Mercedes Mone has already responded to the claim of being the highest paid female wrestler. It remains to be seen if Mercedes Mone’s presence ignites a revolution in women’s wrestling, potentially leading to more names joining AEW.
