Tony Khan Commends AEW Double or Nothing 2024 Build-Up

Mercedes Moné is set to challenge Willow Nightingale for the TBS Championship at AEW Double or Nothing 2024, and Tony Khan is eager for the highly anticipated match. During a media call leading up to the event, AEW's head honcho shared his enthusiasm for the bout, emphasizing the significance of the build-up and the potential for an exciting clash between the two competitors.

"It's been tremendous building up this TBS Championship match between Willow Nightingale, the champion, and the challenger, Mercedes Moné, who will be making her debut in AEW on Sunday," Khan stated. "Mercedes Moné is one of the biggest stars in all of wrestling.

She's been a great champion all over the world and I think she's very deserving of an opportunity to come into AEW and challenge for this. And Willow Nightingale's been a fighting champion, fighting open challenges recently in Japan and defending her title in a street fight.

She's now gonna be taking on one of the greatest wrestlers in the world this Sunday at Double or Nothing, and there's a lot of history between Willow and Mercedes."

History and Rivalry

Khan highlighted the duo's history, noting that it dates back to their match at last year's NJPW Resurgence show.

In that encounter, Nightingale emerged as the champion, but the match is perhaps best remembered for Moné suffering a career-threatening injury that sidelined her for over a year. The AEW boss believes this backstory adds an extra layer of intrigue to their upcoming match, potentially setting the stage for a great rivalry and making Double or Nothing the next chapter in their ongoing story.

While some critics have questioned AEW's presentation of Moné since her arrival, she is determined to prove them wrong at the pay-per-view. Moné has promised to steal the show at Double or Nothing, expressing that she feels more excitement than pressure ahead of her in-ring return.

Her confidence and resolve suggest that fans are in for a memorable performance. As anticipation builds, Tony Khan and the AEW faithful are looking forward to witnessing the culmination of this storyline at Double or Nothing.

With both competitors eager to leave their mark, the TBS Championship match between Willow Nightingale and Mercedes Moné is shaping up to be a highlight of the event. Fans can expect an electric atmosphere as these two talented wrestlers finally clash in an AEW ring, continuing their storied rivalry and creating new memories for wrestling enthusiasts.
