As previously reported, Mercedes Mone was asked about an appearance at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door II and hinted that she might be interested. In an interview with The Bet (via Fightful), AEW CEO Tony Khan responded to her comments and said they were ‘very encouraging’ to hear.

He said: “It’s a very encouraging thing to hear and I have so much respect for Mercedes. She is such a great pro wrestler and certainly, one of the best in the world. Any wrestling company in the world, including AEW, is very fortunate to have Mercedes. Currently, she’s the world champion for our partner New Japan Pro-Wrestling. She’s a great champion for them and I’m glad she brought up Forbidden Door because that’s going to be a very exciting event. Certainly, the shadow of Mercedes is looming large in New Japan Pro Wrestling right now. When AEW and New Japan clash at Forbidden Door, it will be very interesting to see what happens and certainly, she’s one of her top stars in New Japan. It makes for a very interesting situation going into Forbidden Door.
