Mercedes Mone was known as Sasha Banks in the WWE, and she was one of their most popular female stars. In the WWE, she won most of the important titles that the WWE had to offer. She also had a lot of memorable matches with Charlotte Flair that propelled the women’s division to new heights.

Eric Bischoff Believes that Mercedes Mone's Debut Made No Positive Impact on Ratings Mercedes walked out of the WWE and never returned to the company. She was not happy with the way the WWE was handling her. She walked out of the WWE with Naomi.

Mercedes recently made her AEW debut. Although most fans seemed to have enjoyed the debut, Eric Bischoff didn’t like it. According to Eric (former WCW President), the debut had a lot of issues. On the ‘Strictly Business’ podcast Eric Bischoff shared his thoughts about Mercedes’ debut.

Eric also mentioned that the ratings did not improve even after AEW has signed her. "Last week, you know, when Mercedes Mone, she made her big debut, and it was highly anticipated, everybody in the internet knew about it, anybody that was watching AEW knew that the event, of course, including the graphics promoting the event, was letting everybody know that Mercedes Mone was going to be there," said Bischoff.

"There are those who, since the rating came in at, I'll call it an abysmal level, given the fact that so much was made of Mercedes and so much anticipation within the fanbase for AEW — and it didn't pop a rating. So the excuse was, 'Well, nobody knew she was coming.'

Really? Okay, that's laughable. "But, let's just play along and we'll find out whether it was laughable or whether it was a valid point because if the ratings don't move significantly, there's no excuse. The excuse last week was, 'Well they weren't promoted, nobody knew she was coming.'

Again, I'm throwing a flag on that one." Eric has criticized Tony Khan on a lot of occasions in the past. According to Eric, Tony is just throwing money and Eric believes that Tony’s booking decisions are not good. Tony has signed a few superstars recently, and reportedly those stars might be earning more than $3 million a year.

We do not know how much Mercedes might be making, however, she might be making more than $3 million just like Okada (who was recently signed) is.
