Mercedes Mone has blasted rumours regarding her WWE departure. The artist formerly known as Sasha Banks sensationally quit WWE in 2021. After disagreeing with booking decisions while Women’s Tag Team Champion with Naomi, the duo left the company never to return.
Mercedes Mone remains tight lipped on WWE departure
The popular Superstar officially parted ways with WWE in January and sensationally claimed the IWGP Women’s Championship at Battle In The Valley in San Jose, California on February 18th. She recently appeared at Planet Comic Con and refused to lift the lid on her departure from the company:
“First of all, nobody knows the story. You don’t know the story. You’re reading whatever you want to read and believing whatever you want to believe. Nobody knows the story because I haven’t said anything, and I’m not going to say anything because that’s just the classy boss that I am, and CEO. One thing, it’s up to them. It’s up to Dakota (Kai) and everyone else that wants to come back. That’s great for them and awesome. That’s their dream, but I went after mine, which is going to Japan. You have to follow your heart and follow your soul and follow your dreams. This was always, always, always a dream of mine that I never got to accomplish.
As I am growing in my career, I had been in WWE for almost ten years, I had to have a change and I had to feel something different in my heart and my soul. I had to go after a whole new dream, a whole new chapter, and a whole new destiny for me. This is where I want to be and what I want to make happen for me. That’s it. This is what I’m going for and this is my dream”.
Mone recently described herself as ‘free as a bird’ contractually and teased showing up across the globe in the near future
