Sean Ross Sapp took to Twitter and hinted at Mercedes Mone making her debut in AEW soon enough.

Saraya’s journey in All Elite Wrestling has been nothing short of remarkable, especially considering her previous medical retirement due to spinal stenosis. Just a year ago, she made her debut in AEW at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, and shortly after, she received the medical clearance to compete once again in the world of professional wrestling.
Her quest for an AEW championship began at Revolution 2023 when she participated in a triple threat match against Ruby Soho and the then-AEW Women’s Champion, Jamie Hayter. While Hayter managed to retain her title in that encounter, Saraya’s determination eventually led her to achieve her goal of winning the AEW Women’s World Title at All In, just last month.
Now, as she prepares to return to Arthur Ashe Stadium, this marks a significant milestone in her AEW journey, marking one year since her debut with the company.
In a recent conversation with Metro.co.uk, Saraya revealed her strong desire to embrace the role of a heel, or a villainous character, within AEW. She had a keen sense that eventually, the fans would turn against her, and her prediction has indeed proven to be correct.
Saraya recalled discussions she had with fellow wrestling colleagues, including luminaries like Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, and Tony Khan, who initially suggested that she should be a babyface, or a fan-favorite, because the audience would be delighted to see her return. However, this advice frustrated her, as she had always envisioned a heel turn, where she could play the role of the antagonist, from the very beginning.
