IWGP Women’s Champion Mercedes Moné recently spoke with TMZ Sports on a variety of topics such as her NJPW in-ring debut against KAIRI at the Battle In The Valley Event last February 18, where she became the brand-new IWGP Women’s Champion and how that title win was probably the second favorite moment of her pro wrestling career thus far.
Mercedes Moné said:
“That day was so insane. But for it to be in San Jose, just an hour and a half away from where I was born in Fairfield, California.” “I had my friends and my family there. Legit — my blood family and my family in wrestling was there to support me. It was a moment that I’m always going to remember. It’s probably my second favorite moment of my career thus far and that’s saying a lot because I’ve done so much in professional wrestling. But that day was so incredible.”
