The inclusion of Mercedes Mone in AEW has significantly altered the promotion’s landscape. As a pivotal figure in the Jacksonville-based promotion, Mone quickly ascended to stardom within the company. However, Mone has recently expressed her disdain for tribalistic fans, openly criticizing them.

The likes of Eric Bischoff have been very critical of Mercedes Mone and even claimed that she reduces her stock with every single promo. She also has to deal with lot of haters and event sent a message to them recently.

While many view AEW and WWE as competitors, Mercedes Mone doesn’t share that perspective. Speaking to US Weekly, the CEO of AEW made it clear that she believes tribalistic fans are not living in the real world.

“I feel like there should be no competition when it’s between companies. It just needs to be competition between the wrestlers, seeing who wants to be the main event of the show, to make the most money. I’m competing with everybody here in AEW to let them know I’m the face of the company. I’m not competing with any other company.


A lot of things just trail from the Internet. People are just so in their phones. Going on the Internet and bragging and complaining and they’re not actually living in the real world. When they come out into the real world and they actually go to wrestling shows and enjoy things with wrestling fans, they know that this is all just so much fun.”

Mercedes Mone is set to challenge Willow Nightingale for the TBS Championship at AEW Double or Nothing, so we will have to wait and see if she can topple Nightingale to become the new champion in her AEW in-ring debut. Nevertheless, she’ll never stop expressing her opinion about tribalistic fans and that is all that matters.
