Mercedes Mone FKA Sasha Banks’ spreads Christmas cheer with one inconspicuous message

Along with her tag-team partner Naomi, Mercedes Mone quit WWE in May 2022. After her debut with New Japan at Wrestle Kingdom 18, Mone went on to capture the IWGP Women’s Championship the very next month. Her social media activity has sparked speculation about a possible comeback, although she has been out since May recovering from an injury.

As a way to brighten her social media fans’ Christmas 2023, the former WWE star posted a selfie of herself dressed as Santa. After Mercedes captioned the photo with “Happy Holidays,” her followers began to wonder whether she would make a return.

The career of free agent Mercedes Moné has been generating quite a stir in the world of professional wrestling. Speculation about a possible alliance with AEW has persisted since he departed from WWE in May 2022. Wrestle Kingdom 17 was her NJPW debut, and she has spoken with Willow Nightingale of AEW, but Tony Khan’s organization has not yet acquired her.

Mercedes Moné’s continued involvement in Japanese wrestling is suggested by recent rumors to have been prompted by her possible contract renewal with Bushiroad, the parent company of NJPW, just before her presence at STARDOM’s All-Star Grand Queendom event.

While she heals from an ankle injury she sustained at NJPW Resurgence in May 2023, Sasha Banks is considering her options, one of which is a return to WWE. Her asking price apparently surpasses Charlotte Flair’s contract.

Mercedes Moné’s future prospects may be affected by rumors circulating recently that suggest modifications to her creative ambitions with AEW. Wrestling fans are going wild over her most recent social media post, which she captioned “Happy Happy Holidays,” in which she wishes everyone a Merry Christmas. 

WWE HOFer provides update on Mercedes Mone’s return

Since Marcedes Mone isn’t involved in an NJPW agreement, many are wondering whether she will return to WWE, and Booker T seems to share this opinion. The 2024 Royal Rumble is set to take place on January 27th at Tropicana Field, and fans can’t wait to see Sasha Banks’ return at the event.

Without major performers to draw from in WWE, Booker T is worried that Mone would get lost in the crowd. Booker highlighted on his podcast the restrictions of playing primarily in Japan, despite the popularity of her tenure with the all-women promotion STARDOM. He spoke on the value of having a diversified wrestling background, which is something he stresses to his pupils at Reality of Wrestling.

A comeback of her to professional wrestling is still up in the air. The promotion she will be performing under is a mystery to everyone. Have you any thoughts about that? Share your opinion in the comments.
