Will Mercedes Moné one day be All-Elite? Perhaps, but for now, only she and Tony Khan know what the plan is.

Talk of Moné jumping to AEW has existed online since May of last year when she and Naomi (now Trinity) walked out of an episode of Raw over creative issues. At the time, many felt that if Moné was to leave WWE, she would waste no time in signing with AEW. That didn't happen as the former Sasha Banks debuted for New Japan Pro Wrestling in January 2023 at Wrestle Kingdom 17.

This weekend will feature AEW Double or Nothing, the promotion's latest Pay-Per-View and fifth show under the Double or Nothing name. Yesterday, Tony Khan appeared on a media call to discuss and promote the much-anticipated show. When asked about Moné and the possibility that her recent injury has caused a change of plans for AEWxNJPW: Forbidden Door, Khan remained coy.

"Nobody really knows besides Mercedes and myself what was going to happen there."

Khan's comment comes at an interesting time for the former IWGP Women's Champion. On this week's Dynamite, Moné was mentioned and shown in footage from NJPW Resurgence where Willow Nightingale bested Moné to become the first NJPW Strong Women's Champion. It has been reported that Moné was supposed to win that title before an injury forced plans to change. An injury (believed to be a broken ankle) has put Moné's career on pause for the time being, with it unlikely that she will be able to represent NJPW at the upcoming Forbidden Door event. During the media call, it was added that nobody other than Moné knows when she will be healed.
