Tony Khan has high praise for IWGP Women’s World Champion Mercedes Moné.

All Elite Wrestling owner Tony Khan recently sat down with Adrian Hernandez of The Bet Las Vegas & The Sporting Tribune to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about Mercedes Moné’s recent comments at Planet Comicon in Kansas City about possibly taking part in the upcoming Forbidden Door pay-per-view between AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling, Khan said it was very encouraging to hear that.

“Well, it’s a very encouraging thing to hear, and I have so much respect for Mercedes. I think she’s such a great pro wrestler, and certainly, she’s one of the best in the world,” Tony Khan said. “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, and I think she’s a great champion for them. I’m glad she brought up Forbidden Door because that’s gonna be a very exciting event, and 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’ll be very interesting to see what happens. She’s one of their top stars in New Japan, so it makes for a very interesting situation going into Forbidden Door.”
