AEW is expected to debut Mercedes Moné imminently. The former Sasha Banks has just made a very telling statement ahead of a big week in professional wrestling.

A special Big Business edition of Dynamite will air this Wednesday from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. It’s heavily rumored that Moné will make her official All Elite debut during Wednesday’s special episode. The former WWE Superstar grew up in Beantown and is billed from there.

The CEO recently appeared on the Kick Rocks podcast and had major praise for the Sasha Banks character. The Legit Boss said she played the role like a legit boss and served an amazing career. She also looked ahead to Moné’s future.

“A legend. An icon. A powerhouse. Someone who stands up for what she believes in. Is a legit boss. They [WWE] got that trademark for a good reason. I played that role really good. A legit boss, inside and outside the ring, and will lay it all on the line. She has a heart full of gold. Sasha Banks, what a career. What an amazing career. The thing about that, it makes me even more excited to see what Mercedes Moné can do,” she said. [H/T to Fightful]

Moné made more shocking comments this week when she seemingly confirmed her future WWE return. If she wrestles on Wednesday, this will be her first match since suffering an ankle injury on May 21, 2023.
