In the dynamic world of professional wrestling, the buzz around Mercedes Moné's potential move to All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has been gaining momentum. The former WWE star, who has been a free agent since her departure in 2022, is considered one of the industry's most sought-after talents.
Amidst these speculations, AEW’s own Daniel Garcia has recently shared high praise for Moné, acknowledging her unparalleled skills and dedication to the sport. In an insightful interview with The Walkway Fight Club, Garcia didn't hold back in expressing his admiration for Moné.
"I think a Mercedes, not even in a women's division, I think she's one of the greatest performers of all time," he stated emphatically. He highlighted her star quality, impressive in-ring ability, and her unique creative approach.
Garcia, who has yet to meet Moné personally, remarked on her exceptional work ethic, noting her efforts to hone her craft by visiting various wrestling schools during her break from WWE.

Mercedes Moné’s reputation extends beyond her in-ring prowess; her dedication to constantly improving her skills has made her a role model for aspiring wrestlers.
Garcia’s admiration was evident as he commented, "I really admire her, I love watching and studying her matches. I think she’s one of the best of all time, male or female." Adding to the conversation, Ricky Starks, another AEW talent, shared his thoughts on the rumors of Moné's AEW signing while speaking with Gabby AF.
Known for his confident demeanor, Starks expressed a preference for teaming up with Moné rather than facing her in the ring. "I keep hearing that [Mercedes Moné could be coming to AEW], and you know what? I ain’t seen her backstage so, I don’t know… I would rather tag with her than have a match with her," he said, with his characteristic assurance.
The wrestling community eagerly awaits official news on Moné’s next steps, as she remains one of the hottest free agents in the industry. Meanwhile, fans can look forward to the upcoming episode of Collision, where Daniel Garcia and FTR will take on House of Black in a highly anticipated Six-man Elimination Steel Cage Match.
