Mercedes Mone was at one time one of the most popular WWE female stars. She was known as Sasha Banks in the WWE and she used the moniker ‘Legit Boss’ at that time. She currently uses the moniker ‘CEO’.

AEW has signed some huge names over the past several weeks. This is AEW’s effort to try to get the ratings back, that they seem to have been losing continuously.

Reportedly, they signed Okada, the legendary Japanese wrestler, for millions of dollars. They also signed Mercedes Mone, however, we do not know how much she will make during her AEW run. Mercedes left the WWE, or more accurately, walked out twice.

She didn’t like the creative decisions that the WWE was taking during that time. For a long time, she wrestled on the indie circuit. According to many, Mercedes has the potential to be one of AEW’s biggest female stars, but can also be one of the company’s biggest stars.

In fact, Tony Khan recently stated that Mercedes has the potential to become the face of AEW. Several years ago, Becky Lynch was the face of the WWE and Tony Khan probably wishes Mercedes to take the same role in his company.

Tony spoke about this on NBC10 Boston. "Mercedes is one of the greatest wrestlers in the world," Khan said. "She's going to help bring in new audiences from all over the world. I think not only is she going to come in as one of the faces of AEW, one of the top stars, but she's also one of the best wrestlers, one of the most charismatic people, [and] somebody who loves wrestling.

To me, Mercedes not only is somebody who loves the wrestling business, loves getting in the ring and wrestling, but loves the fans. And I think that's what we're all about in AEW. I think that's why Mercedes is perfect to be the face of AEW." When Mercedes made her debut last week, she stated that she wishes to fight wrestlers that she has never fought before.

In WWE, she fought the best female wrestlers that were present at that time. Mercedes expressed interest in facing Skye Blue, Julia Hart (Current TBS Champion), Toni Storm (Current AEW Women’s Champion).
