Mercedes Mone Gives Injury Update

Mercedes Mone was injured in her last match against Willow Nightingale to crown the inaugural NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion at NJPW Resurgence.

After the injury, NJPW did issue a statement that Mone injured her right ankle. They believed that there was a severe sprain without a break, but further diagnosis was needed. On June 11, Mone took to Instagram to show that her ankle was wrapped with a caption that read “Day 6 recovery.”

A current timeline for Mone’s return has not been provided at this time.

There have been rumors that prior to her injury, AEW had interest in wanting her to participate in the upcoming Forbidden Door event on June 25. This is a NJPW x AEW crossover. There was talk of Saraya being her opponent.

Kris Statlander who is the AEW TBS Champion, she was asked if she had heard of any plans of her to facing Mone. She had the following to say when speaking to Haus of Wrestling on Mone and also putting over Nightingale.

“If there was plans, I did not hear about them. So I have no idea. I wasn’t on the first Forbidden Door, which is fine. I think it’s good to showcase people that don’t always get those bigger matches and those bigger showcases. I think it’s good to give them the opportunity. I think that it’s really a spot that Willow should be in being the New Japan STRONG Women’s Champion. I think that would be a really good spot for her to step up and defend that title against someone. I think she deserves that. She’s been here and she’s been killing it consistently. I think that’s a really good spot for her to be in. Not that I don’t deserve that spot, but I just won my title and I’ve been wrestling nonstop already. I do think she deserves that big spot though.” (Fightful)

Diva Dirt hopes to see Mone return to the ring as quickly and healthy as possible.
