As previously noted, talks between WWE and Mercedes Mone (Sasha Banks) for a return reportedly fell through.
It’s believed that Mercedes has been in talks with AEW and it now appears that she will be joining the brand in the near future. While he didn’t report it, Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com stated that he would be “very” surprised if Mercedes didn’t appear on this coming Wednesday’s edition of Dynamite.
Fightful Select later noted that those within the industry expect Mercedes to join AEW. Fightful also stated the following…
“Of late in both WWE and AEW, there have been instances – specifically with Will Ospreay and CM Punk – where the physical contracts were not signed until the day of their appearances with AEW and WWE respectively. One source claimed that they heard AEW and Mercedes were close to agreeing on terms, but said ‘it’s never official until it’s official.'”
