Matt Hardy Says Mercedes Moné’s NJPW Debut Was A Big Deal

Current AEW Star and pro wrestling legend Matt Hardy recently took to an episode of his “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, where he spoke about a number of topics such as former WWE Superstar Mercedes Moné (Sasha Banks) showing up at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 and how that was a big deal as well as how he has so much respect for someone like Mercedes who is willing to leave WWE and go out and hustle on their own.

Matt Hardy said:

“I mean, good for her. Sasha, Mercedes, she really bet on herself and it’s hard for me not to appreciate that, because I’m one of those guys too, where I feel like, and Vince always knew that too, like, I didn’t have to be in WWE. I’m not afraid to step out of Alexandria, you know, a safe zone. I kind of compare Alexandria from The Walking Dead to WWE. If you stay inside and you have these walls, you’re gonna have a nice life, and it’s safe and it’s easy, and you can make decent money and it’s good, but you can go outside those walls and you can survive on your own, but you have to hustle. You definitely have to hustle. So I have huge respect for anyone who is willing to leave WWE and go out and hustle on their own. I think Mercedes is killing it. She’s doing a great job at keeping herself relevant, keeping herself in the conversations, being a huge talking point in the wrestling business, and showing up at New Japan and doing what she did. It was a big, big deal.”
