Mercedes Mone reportedly negotiating contract extension for New Japan

Ahead of her scheduled title defense in STARDOM, it seems as though IWGP Women’s Champion Mercedes Mone (formerly Sasha Banks) is in talks with Bushiroad to extend her contract for one additional match.

Speaking on this during Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the final match on the current contract is Mone’s title defense against Mayu Iwatani during STARDOM’s All Star Grand Queendom event at the Yokohama Arena, but the champion is in talks to arrange for one more match. According to Meltzer, Dominion is a possibility but it’s otherwise uncertain when this final match would take place.

Mercedes won the IWGP Championship at Battle of the Valley in February, defeating the inaugural champion KAIRI at the New Japan event held in San Jose, California.
