The New Japan Pro Wrestling debut of Mercedes Varnado, a.k.a. Sasha Banks, is anticipated to take place at Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4 from the Tokyo Dome.
Banks had to wait until 2023 for the non-compete clause to expire after months of negotiating her WWE departure.
On Sunday morning, Banks tweeted cryptically about taking a chance on something she loves, writing the following in the caption:
“When you take a risk doing what you love, that’s exciting.”
Is this the biggest tease yet that Mercedes is AEW Bound?
