In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, the landscape of rosters is constantly shifting. With talents moving from one promotion to another, fans are always on the lookout for the next big signing. AEW President Tony Khan has often been at the forefront of these acquisitions, bringing in top-tier talent from WWE and elsewhere to bolster his roster.

During the recent AEW Full Gear Media Scrum, Khan was asked about the possibility of adding former WWE Superstar Mercedes Mone, formerly known as Sasha Banks, to the AEW roster. Mone, who has been competing for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) since her departure from WWE in May 2022, is widely regarded as one of the most talented female wrestlers in the world.

Khan expressed his admiration for Mone and acknowledged her potential impact on AEW, stating, “I have a ton of respect for Mercedes Mone. We would love to have her anytime in AEW. She has had a great experience with our partner, New Japan, and she would be a great addition to AEW anytime we would always love to have her here.”

Khan’s comments suggest that AEW is indeed interested in bringing Mone into the fold. While there is no official confirmation of any negotiations or agreements at this time, Khan’s positive remarks about Mone indicate a mutual respect and admiration between the two parties.

Mone’s potential addition to AEW would undoubtedly be a significant move, further strengthening the promotion’s already impressive women’s division. Her in-ring skills, charisma, and star power would make her an instant contender for the AEW Women’s World Championship, and her presence would elevate the entire division to new heights.

While Mone’s future remains uncertain, Khan’s expression of interest has undoubtedly sparked excitement among AEW fans. The prospect of seeing Mone grace the AEW ring is a tantalizing one, and her potential arrival would undoubtedly add another chapter to the ongoing rivalry between AEW and WWE for wrestling supremacy.
