Mercedes Mone Confirms Next Wrestling Appearance

Mercedes Mone

Earlier today, Mercedes Mone suffered a roadblock in her quest to prove herself a big star outside of WWE when she lost a very important match.

In the penultimate match on Stardom’s All Star Grand Queendom event, Mone lost the IWGP Women’s Championship to Mayu Iwatani. With this loss, Mone’s reign ended at 64 days and a single successful title defense, which was in a three-way match with AZM and Haruki at NJPW Sakura Genesis on April 8th.

And since most Japanese promotions shy away from the notion of immediate title rematches for former champions, it is unlikely that Mercedes Mone will be getting another title shot for a while.

That said, Mone still has something big planned for her next wrestling appearance.

Mercedes Mone plans on appearing at NJPW Resurgence on May 21st in Long Beach, CA

In a post-match promo, Mercedes Mone vowed to wrestle for New Japan once again as she plans on being in Long Beach, California on May 21st, which is the location and date for New Japan’s next big USA show, Resurgence.

“I am so disappointed. I feel broken. I feel bankrupt. But I just called my CPA…and she just told me I’m still really, really rich, so I’ll be okay.

“But look what Mayu did to my beautiful face. Do you not know who I am? I am a living legend. I am a star…I am a star in Star Wars!

Mayu-san…you are not The Undertaker. And I promise you, the next time I am here in Stardom you will be a dead b***h. Because I want one more chance, one more opportunity to get back my IWGP Women’s Championship.

But…I am NOT done with New Japan…and I am NOT done with Stardom. Because I am still on my world tour. And my next stop, is May 21st at Resurgence. So get ready to roll up a nice big one, because we’re going to my cousin’s house…Long Beach, baby!”

No matches have been announced for NJPW Resurgence as of yet since New Japan has one more big show before that.

On May 3rd, New Japan will be showcasing its annual Wrestling Dontaku event, which will be headlined by SANADA defending his newly-won IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against former LIJ stablemate Hiromu Takahashi.
