Tony Khan comments on Mercedes Mone following her attendance at AEW All In 2023 PPV

As seen during the 2023 AEW All In PPV, Mercedes Mone (formerly Sasha Banks) was shown watching the event in the crowd. During All In’s post-show press conference, AEW President Tony Khan commented on her possibly working for the company…

“She’s not cleared, Mercedes Mone. So I think it was great to have her here. She last competed for NJPW, so I thought it would be excellent to have one of the top international stars in all of pro wrestling here. And the last time we saw Mercedes Mone compete, she was actually competing against our own Willow Nightingale. And there’s a lot of exciting international pro wrestling, I thought it’d be great to have here to see all the matches, including the AEW Women’s World Championship.”

“But she’s not cleared since her injury. I just thought it’d be good to have her take in the show. Definitely a lot of potential things could happen there, and I know New Japan Pro Wrestling has had great experiences working with her, and I thought it’d be great given that she’s not cleared but wanted to take in the biggest paid pro wrestling crowd of all time and see what AEW’s all about. I thought it’d be good for her to be here. But obviously she’s not wrestling or cleared or doing anything any time soon. But great to have the top international stars at a top international show. And of course, for the World Champion here, there’s all kinds of people who want to take a shot.” (quotes courtesy of
