NJPW issued a statement after the event saying that Mone injured her right ankle. Fightful Select would later report that NJPW believes Mercedes sustained a severe sprain without a break, however, a more definitive diagnosis would have to wait for the swelling to subside.

On June 11, the former WWE Superstar would share an Instagram story showing her ankle heavily wrapped with a caption reading, "Day 6 recovery."

A timeline on Mone's return to action has yet to be provided.

A recent report surfaced noting that AEW had significant discussions with Mercedes Mone about appearing at Forbidden Door. Fans can learn more here.
