During the NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 PPV event, Mercedes Mone (formerly Sasha Banks) made her debut with the promotion. Mercedes came down to the ring after Kairi (Sane) successfully defended the IWGP women’s title.
After a face-off in the ring, Mercedes attacked Kairi and left her laying. Mercedes cut a promo and challenged Kairi for the IWGP women’s title at Battle In The Valley in San Jose, CA on February 18th. Here is what Mercedes said…
“Congratulations on making history tonight. I also know a thing or two about making history. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m the standard, the conversation, the blueprint and the CEO of this woman’s division. So Kairi, enjoy your IWGP Women’s Championship while you can, because at Battle in the Valley in San Jose I’m going to leave you bankrupt, bitch. And you can bank on Mone.”
