Athena On Mercedes Mone: “She Adds Star Power, She Adds Confidence”

AEW

Athena was on Good Karma Wrestling to promote ROH Supercard of Honor, where she spoke about the arrival of Mercedes Mone to All Elite Wrestling. 

Mone joined the promotion last month on the Dynamite: Big Business episode. She will make her in-ring debut at the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view event next month, challenging the TBS Champion. 

“She adds star power, she adds confidence. I think for so long, we, as a women’s division, especially in AEW, were having these great matches and we had stars but we were trying to breach the ceiling of star power and I think Mercedes Moné brings that to the table. From her being (on) The Mandalorian to her being a multi-time world champion to just the charisma and aura that she brings into every moment she’s on TV. I really feel like that is what’s gonna set this women’s division over the edge in AEW. On top of that, it’s not that she’s doing it by herself. She’s bringing those women up with her, right? Like your Willow (Nightingale), Kris Statlander, your Julia (Hart), Skye Blue. They’re all in the same scene as her and that’s really cool that we’re doing that. Now, with that being said, your ‘Minion Overlord’ is just tiers above her, tiers above her. She’s doing great over there. We’re doing the Minion Overlord’s work over here, okay? We’re up here, we’re up top. She down here, we up here… This is my arrogance talking so sure, whatever, I’m certain we’re gonna get a whole lot of comments about it on the X app if you will. But, I think that the work that me, Billie (Starkz), Lexy (Nair), even Willow, have put in, doing these main events, showing Tony (Khan) that women can main event and deliver every single time. There’s a reason why I call myself ‘the inspiration to every women’s division’ and I definitely think our work inspired him to bring Mercedes Moné to the table.”
